Download videos from YouTube and other video sites like Vimeo, Dailymotion or Metacafe. That's exactly what xVideoServiceThief is for, a client to download contents from those portals and save them on our hard drive to play them offline without an Internet connection, edit them or anything else we fancy doing with them.

From converting videos to scheduling download times

These are the two most noteworthy functions of this version for Linux of a program this is used by thousands of users. In other words, we can download music videos to our PC and immediately leave them prepared to be played on other devices, Android and iPhone included. These are its main features:

  • Function to convert downloaded videos to these formats: AVI, MPEG, WMV, MP4, 3GP and MP3.
  • Possibility to schedule download times.
  • Support for multiple downloads.
  • Built-in search engine and multimedia player.
  • Support to drag and drop URLs.

This kind of application has become very popular Windows, Mac and especially Android, where you can find APKs of hundreds of programs that do exactly the same: download videos from YouTube. However, they aren't very frequent on distros like Ubuntu, so this is quite a decent alternative.

In a matter of seconds, the video will go from streaming to your hard drive.

The list of sites supported by this software is very long, and as well as Google's video site and the webs mentioned before, we can also use it one:

  • AOL Video.
  • ElRellano.com.
  • LiveLeak.
  • MyVideo.
  • GameSpot.
  • Adult video sites.

To keep it short, a program to watch your favorite videos offline and whenever you want.

Requirements and additional information:
  • Requires a 64-bit operating system.
