A majority of today’s internet traffic consists of streamed video.. Over 400 hours of content uploaded every minute, an average of 40 minutes watched per session, and greater reach in the 18–49 demographic than cable TV. And then you have to consider other video streaming sites like Vimeo, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vine, Twitch, etc. That’s a lot of data flowing around., then video streaming can be expensive. You end up downloading a lot of repeat data every time you re-watch a video, and it can add up quick.
It’s also a pain not being able to watch videos when your internet cuts out (or the video site goes down). The solution is to download frequently-watched videos to your computer. You can re-watch them as many times as you want without wasting bandwidth. This is especially useful for educational and entertainment videos as they both tend to be highly re-watchable. (Web) Supported sites: Facebook, Soundcloud, Vimeo, Vine, YouTube. VideoGrabby is the simplest and most straightforward tool. We recommend it if you want a no-hassle option that requires a close to zero effort on your part.

Just copy the URL of an online video and paste it into VideoGrabby. As soon as you do, two buttons show up: Record Video and Record Audio. The video option downloads as MP4 while the audio option downloads as MP3.

Video DownloadHelper is easily one of the most useful browser extensions you’ll ever install. It’s even simpler to use than the above-mentioned VideoGrabby, but the downside (if you can even call it one) is that you have to install it on your browser,.
But, if you download a lot of videos on a day-to-day basis, Video DownloadHelper is worth whatever performance hit you might take, and in my experience the performance hit is negligible. The extension adds a button next to your browser’s address bar. Whenever you come across an online video, you can just click the button to download any of the videos on the current page.

It’s completely free, easy to use, and relatively flexible as far as quality and format options are concerned. The one big downside is that it’s only available on Windows. Videos can be downloaded in a handful of formats, including AVI, FLV, MKV, MP4, and WMV. Videos can also be downloaded in MP3 format if you only want the audio portion.

This makes it very easy to capture several different videos at once. Bundleware warning!

Features include several video selection and quality parameters, playlist processing, download rate limit, batch video downloading, automatic naming of files, inclusion of ads (currently experimental), and downloading subtitles (for sites like YouTube).
As of now, the following formats are supported: 3GP, AAC, FLV, M4A, MP3, MP4, OGG, WAV, and WEBM.

Each of these sites is linked from deturl.com, which is sort of a meta-downloader-tool. It combines a traditional downloading links + a download bookmarklet (direct downloading, not simple redirection) + redirection bookmarklet + links to other downloading services. By using its bookmarklet on any video page from MANY different video streaming sites, you will either be given a direct link to download the file from the actual video page, or you will be redirect to deturl.com and given multiple different choices for downloading the video, such as links to the sites above.
For some sites, especially random sites that have some sort of embedded video, or even simply links to video files, such as mpg files and avi files, it will provide links directly. It depends on the site and what works best. It works on FaceBook and many adult websites such as RedTube, PornHub, XXXBunker, Tube8, XVideos, and more. Not only does it help you download, but it helps you convert YouTube videos to MP3, AVI, and many other formats.
It also links you directly to other useful services, such as youtubeproxy, synchtube, youtubesocial, endlessyoutube, tubechop, youtubedoubler, etc. Deturl first launched as PwnYouTube.com, and still you can insert 'PWN' into the url of any youtube video to get download links. This is a nice way to also bypass YouTube's request to login to see age restricted videos.
Honestly, I'd love to see a separate article about Deturl.
