With the development of faster connections and powerful compression algorithms, the Internet has become an important medium for video sharing. People upload thousands of free videos every day. Some users will publish their homemade videos; teachers will share educational materials while music fans will post their favorite songs. However, not everybody has permanent access to broadband Internet connections. In addition, some users may want to watch their favorite videos on their portable media devices. In such cases, they will need to download a copy of the desired video.
MovieSaver will help you download your favorite Internet movies. It will work by stripping the URLs of the videos contained in a given page. Its interface is very easy to use and probably you will not need any help to start downloading. Anyway, the accompanying help is poorly written in English and even the screenshots appear in German. You can start by copying the video page URL from your browser and pasting it into the video URL field. By loading this URL, the program will provide you with a list of the videos. In this regard, you can also set it to show only the files with the best quality available. After selecting the required files, you will be ready to start downloading them.
In general, MovieSaver is a very intuitive and robust application supporting video downloading from a wide array of sites. However, it does have its limitations. In this respect, it does not integrate with your browser so you will have to do add the URL manually.
