Easy and Excellent Alternatives to Download YouTube and Other Videos

airyWhich tool do you love the most for downloading YouTube videos? Is it KeepVid? I agree that it’s perhaps the number one tool for the job. Most people use it for downloading videos not only from YouTube, but also from other sources like Vimeo, Dailymotion and more. However, you might have faced some difficulties while using KeepVid. I mean haven’t you experienced a hitch when you were downloading a certain video, which was important for you to download right on that time? Most of you might have experienced this problem, I am sure. The KeepVid thing doesn’t respond sometimes for a few hours and sometimes for days! And that’s really frustrating.

However, finding an alternative to Mac KeepVid is not as easy as claimed by the numerous nonsense ads that are posted on the internet. But I think, we won’t face such a problem henceforth, because we’ve found some easy alternatives.
