But which is the best đoạn Clip downloader for Chrome?

Of the dozens (& dozens) of chrome video downloaders available, there are only three we’d recommend:

FBDown Video downloadervGet

One of these should be part of everyone’s collection of chrome extensions. And yes, there’s a way lớn tải về videos from YouTube (see option three).

1. FBDown Video downloader

Pricing: FreeUsers: 1 millionRating: 3.9/5Supports: Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMotion

Despite the name, this extension does more than just tải về video from Facebook. You can download Clip from across the web. It’s không tính phí, và the only major platform it doesn’t seem to work on is YouTube.

Install it from the Chrome Web Store here.

Once it’s installed, just clichồng the download arrow in your extension bar on Chrome & you’ll see a list of available videos on the page you’re viewing. Unusually, FBDown displays both the đoạn Clip filename và a thumbnail image that lets you identify the Clip you want more readily.

You can also enter a video clip URL lớn tải về at the FBDown website.

You don’t get a lot of choices with format, và when you choose to lớn download a đoạn phim you’re taken (in a new tab) khổng lồ a download page—the extension is a portal to the website functionality. FBDown has said the company’s servers don’t keep tải về histories of their users or traông chồng their behavior.

That said, FBDown is easy lớn use, practical, well-reviewed, doesn’t ask for any weird permissions or behave sầu oddly, và doesn’t seem lớn interfere with or slow down browsing.

2. vGet Extension

Pricing: FreeUsers: 390,000Rating: 3.8/5Supports: Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMotion

vGet also works on everything except YouTube, and has the added advantage that it can be used to cast video clip khổng lồ DLNA-enabled TVs.

You also get more control over the tệp tin type & format when you download. Although you don’t get the handy thumbnails that FBDown uses to lớn help you find your video on the page, you do get something arguably better: scroll down the các mục of available videos that comes up when you clichồng the extension inhỏ, và as you mouse over each one, the video on the page is highlighted and marked with the tải về icon.

How to tải về videos from YouTube

Let’s take a quick detour. By now you’ve sầu probably guessed that it’s tough to lớn download videos from YouTube. The streaming giant’s parent company also owns Chrome và has a vested interest in keeping users on YouTube, so extensions aren’t allowed to lớn offer YouTube download functionality. That means you’re not going to lớn find a good Clip downloader in the Chrome Web Store.

So what are your options?

YouTube Premium, formerly YouTube Red, offers offline playback as part of the $12/month subscription package. This functionality is also available in some countries with a standard YouTube membership. Here’s the danh mục, characterized by inaccessibility or typically poor connectivity.

Depending on what you want to download videos for, YouTube Premium might be just the answer you’re looking for. It gives you complete access to lớn YouTube Originals, YouTube Music, YouTube Kids, and ad-free YouTube access.

But YouTube’s offline playbaông xã doesn’t solve sầu all the problems that might have sầu caused you khổng lồ need a downloader in the first place. For instance, you can (obviously) only use it on YouTube. And it’s only usable on di động devices since you need khổng lồ have the app. If you want khổng lồ compile video clip playlists from multiple sources, or cut và remake your own videos, you’ll need another solution.

One way to lớn get more options và control is by using a browser-based downloader like Freemake.

Honorable mention: Freemake

Pricing: FreeUsers: 83 millionSupports: Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMotion

Freemake is free và web-based. To use it, just open it in a browser tab. Here’s the links.

We tested it by downloading a Clip of my co-founder, Hiten Shah, speaking at Startup Grind. We figured they wouldn’t mind.

All you have sầu khổng lồ bởi is drop the video URL inkhổng lồ the bar on the website and click Download. From there, it takes a few seconds lớn convert the đoạn phim and a few more khổng lồ download it as an MP4. You can change the format, with the most comtháng options available on the homescreen:

Dig inkhổng lồ the site a little more & you’ll find you can download YouTube and other videos in other formats lượt thích WebM or FLV, as well as rip web link as AVIs khổng lồ multiple devices including phones, Kindle Fire, and more.

And Freemake makes a big khuyễn mãi giảm giá of assuring users that original chất lượng is preserved. In the đoạn Clip we downloaded and then played in Quicktime, chất lượng certainly looked equal khổng lồ the YouTube version.

However, that’s not as convenient as being able to lớn download YouTube videos with a single cliông xã, which for many use cases is ideal. For that, you’re going khổng lồ need our third & final piông chồng of Chrome video downloaders, SaveFrom.


Pricing: FreeRating: 4.4/5Supports: Vimeo (via web), YouTube (direct), Facebook (via web), Twitter (see special instructions below), DailyMotion (via web)

SaveFrom is built for YouTube. The extension is a little complex lớn install, but once it is installed, it works quickly và easily. You can download YouTube videos with a single cliông xã from the đoạn Clip itself, from history, or from browsing.

You won’t find SaveFrom itself on the Chrome Web Store. It works by downloading a separate Chrome extension that enables this one. It’s also web-based. The extension doesn’t work with Clip sources other than YouTube, but the trang web does, so bookmark that & you can download đoạn Clip from everywhere.

Start at the website. Here, you can drop the URL of any video you want to tải về into the tải về box. Twitter videos require special instructions.

Or khổng lồ install the extension:

Once you’re mix up, you can just click on YouTube videos to lớn tải về them.

Since other videos need lớn be downloaded from the SaveFrom trang web, this tool is less versatile than the other solutions we’ve sầu talked about—with the major exception that it works on YouTube. It probably makes sense khổng lồ have both SaveFrom and vGet or FBDown at the same time. They don’t seem to lớn interfere with each other & the combination would give sầu you broader access.

This extension has had malware & other security issues in the past, but these now appear to lớn have sầu been resolved; when we tested it, we didn’t see any strange adverts or security alerts from Chrome.

Why use a Clip downloader anyway?

There are several legal reasons to use a video downloader for work, education, or leisure:

1. View videos offline

You might just want lớn view videos offline. Instructional videos or communication from co-workers in video khung can be easier khổng lồ use và more intuitive than text. But it’s inconvenient khổng lồ rely on an internet connection for nội dung you might need to lớn access while flying, on your commute, or in other circumstances where connectivity is spotty. Downloading videos can make them more accessible.

2. Let others view videos offline

Sometimes you might need lớn giới thiệu đoạn phim with contractors or partners. But not everyone is comfortable passing liên kết around, and some organizations might have objections to lớn allowing links in emails or other communications. In some cases, contractors will be in places or situations where internet connectivity is spotty. It’s helpful lớn be able to download your own videos khổng lồ cốt truyện directly without having a centralized Clip repository.

3. For education or training

In schools, colleges, và training sessions, it’s common lớn want only part of a Clip. Whether that’s the specific ten seconds that really clarify what you’re talking about, or whether you want khổng lồ stitch together parts of several videos, it’s much easier to tải về them & then use a đoạn phim editing tool lớn shape, splice, and trlặng the đoạn Clip the way you want.

4. Managing your videos

Say you want to save sầu a video like this, from DisrupTV on Vimeo, and our Startup Grind favorite from earlier on YouTube. You have sầu three options.

Create a playlist in each service, add to lớn the playcác mục, then sign in to both services in separate tabs when you want to watch both videos. Or you can copy the URLs, dump them in a Doc, và open the videos from there—clumsy & old-school as that is, it’s not the worst. Or, of course, you can download the videos themselves and put them in a folder on your device.

5. Make sure you can find them

Videos get moved or taken down. If you have a video clip that’s your go-to lớn resource, you want khổng lồ make sure you don’t thua kém it when someone restructures their website or closes their YouTube trương mục. Download the đoạn phim and it’s yours forever.
