Clip Extractor provides you with a convenient method of downloading online videos and saving them on your computer. It can give you a helping hand when it comes to grabbing your favorite online streams and creating a complete, locally stored collection.
The range of supported websites includes some of the most popular content providers, such as YouTube, MetaCafe, DailyMotion, Vimeo, Break and more. However, not all of them are included in the cost-free version.
The application can only download the videos in AVI format, compatible with DVD players and PCs (additional formats are available in the Pro version). However, it allows you to select the screen size and the output quality and in this case, there are various options to choose from. Videos can be saved in the original, lower or higher quality and at the default or a user-defined resolution.
The main interface of Clip Extractor is intuitive enough to have even beginner users get accustomed to each option at first launch. It comprises options for pasting the video URL or typing it manually, selecting the output format, the quality and the download destination.
Clip Extractor proceeds to grabbing the file, enabling you to monitor the download progress and review the video name, size, as well as the remaining time until it is saved on your computer.
Please note that having your computer protected by a firewall might prevent the application from downloading the video, so you have to add it as an exception.
On an ending note, Clip Extractor is capable of downloading online videos at reasonable speed. Its ease of use makes it worth your while. Nevertheless, there are various other applications out there that meet the same purpose and offer more features, such as an extended range of output formats, without charging the user extra.
