    Are there any PC softwares to do so? Just like KeepVid provides a Chrome Extension or any video downloads other than YouTube Downloader which downloads all the Video sharing videos?

    Hello; I just found out about your blog through a post on sue neil’s site write clever where she mentioned you as a blogger she respects and admires. I liked this post. I help people sell amusement equipment and related items. Often people send me links to videos of their equipment hosted on youtube. For a while now i have been embedding their videos into a page and then linking that to their listing. However, with so browsers this doesn’t work. Also using the embed means there is no auto load of the video. so as a blind computer user running a mac with apple’s screen reader named voiceover. I loved the post but which of these do you think would be the easiest for me to use. It would be helpful if the site doesn’t have a lot of graphics or use flash. and of course any programs would have to be available in a mac version. I’ll appreciate any advice you can give me to save me time and frustration on finding which one of these methods will work best. Thanks for the post and take care, max

  9. Hey,
    I think you should checkout Orbit video Downloader. It is also great option to download from many websites.
    Lately I’ve been using it for download videos from various different websites which don’t support direct download!
