7/10 (266 Votes)

Who cares if YouTube is a huge online video repository that's always available on demand (although sometimes with adverts). It doesn't matter because we'll always want to download the latest Katy Perry video, the last-minute goal of our team against Man United or any old video starring cute cats. And just to load them onto our tablet, share them via WhatsApp from our smartphone or edit them to have a laugh.

Your hard drive can't cope with all the videos on the Internet. Check it out with this program.

Regardless of the purpose you have in mind, there are loads of different programs to download videos to our PC and one of them is xVideoServiceThief, which has nothing to envy of other similar applications like aTube Catcher, which we could define as the best program to download videos from the Internet.

Compatible with dozens of online video streaming services

Its main strength is precisely the wide range of webs and services that it's compatible with and that will allow you to get hold of all sorts of videos. This and other features and features make it the favorite video downloader for millions of users:

  • Support for dozens of websites: after its latest update it was compatible with more than 90 webs and services (although some of them may have closed), including sites of general contents such as YouTube, Metacafe, Vimeo or LiveLeak, but also adult video services.
  • Built-in video conversion: it incorporates a converter so that you can convert any video to other popular formats compatible with any Android device or iPhone, including AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2, WMV, MP4, 3GP or MP3.
  • Download almost any video thanks to its compatibility with the HTTP and RTMP web protocols.
  • Establish a download schedule: it comes along with a function to schedule downloads so that you can use your Internet bandwidth when you're not on your computer.
  • Download several videos simultaneously to save time.
  • Support for extensions and plug-ins.
  • Function to pause and resume downloads. Therefore, if you need more bandwidth you don't have to cancel your download queue.
  • Built-in search engine to start the download or simply play it within the program.
  • Drag & drop support that allows you to drag links straight to the interface so that you don't have to copy and paste URLs.
  • Automatic updates for each new version (if you authorize them on your firewall).
  • Support for connections through proxy servers although it's a function still at beta stage.
  • Download history.
  • Interface prepared for disabled users.
  • Child protection so that your kids don't download inappropriate contents such as Arsenal matches or Justin Bieber videos.

This popular download manager has also landed on other platforms like Linux and macOS, but for the time being, there's no APK available for Android. As an alternative for tablets and smartphones, your best option is probably downloading Tubemate, since it doesn't look like there will ever be a version for mobile devices.

How does xVideoServiceThief work?

You don't really need any sort of tutorial, guide or a computer technology degree to get to know how to use this program to download videos. It's really easy and can be used just like any other program of this nature:

  1. Step 1: once you run the program, you'll see on the lower part of the interface a box where you can configure the download folder to store your videos and audio.
  2. Step 2: on the right-hand side of the interface you can find the option Add video. If you click on it, a window will open inviting you to paste the corresponding URL.
  3. Step 3: press Accept and patiently wait for your video to be downloaded (the time will depend on your connection and the server).

In More Options, you'll find precisely that, additional options to configure the output format, languages, download schedules, resolution, audio quality, etc.
