I wrote a detailed review of KeepVid Pro last year in which I mentioned about its Windows version which I am still using. And, I am totally in love with this software as downloading videos are done effortlessly with this.
Nowadays, many of us use our smartphone more than our computer system. That is why the team at KeepVid has launched their YouTube Video Downloader for Android as well with the name “KeepVid Android”. Don’t get confused with the name “KeepVid Android – The YouTube Downloader”. It is just in the name; it can download videos from almost every video sharing websites including YouTube.
In this blog post, I am going to talk about the features of KeepVid Android App, and how you can use it to download videos from YouTube and other video websites.
When you search for a video in the KeepVid app and try to download, you are given the option to choose the video quality, and even you get the option to download its MP3 version as well. This feature is useful for those who are not able to find their favorite song’s in MP3 format to download. However, they do find the video of that particular song on YouTube. But, they only want MP3 and not the video. So, KeepVid offers the option to download YouTube to MP3 directly.
As you can see in the above screenshot that both Video and Audio options are available, tap anyone of them and download. It applies to every video you download using KeepVid app.
Once the video is downloaded, you can find the option of sharing on the Downloaded screen, and the best thing is you can directly share that video with anyone using email, WhatsApp, etc.
Just tap on Share media to, and you will see options to share. Simple!
Though you see video site list on the home screen of KeepVid app, if you already have a direct link to a video that you want to download, you can do that as well.
As you can see in above screenshot, you just need to click on the blue circle at the bottom right corner of the KeepVid app’s home screen. Once you tap it, you get a pop-up box where you can paste the link of the video, and click OK to proceed to download the video.
I liked this feature because if I have a link already, I don’t need to go again to the site within KeepVid and search for that. This feature makes the process quicker when you have the link with you.
The age where everyone wants to save time, and work more in less time, multi-tasking is the most important feature to embed in any app or software. The KeepVid team has done a great job by offering the flexibility and multi-tasking feature in this app which allows you to download multiple videos simultaneously.
You just need to start downloading one video and find other and start that one. Same way, you can put many videos on download at the same time.
KeepVid Android app has a built-in Web browser which searches for videos from the video sites, and lists on one page which you can download. All you need to do is to run the KeepVid app and type anything you want. For example, I have typed “techtricksworld”, and since we have a channel named techtricksworld, it listed all the video from that channel.
However, you can search any term to search for a video, and you will see the list as you see above. You can see the download icon next to every video which you can click to download the videos.
You saw in the #2 point that there are share buttons available to share the downloaded videos to anyone. Now, let me tell you that KeepVid also offers share buttons for the videos you have not downloaded yet. I mean you open a video and haven’t downloaded yet. Still, you can share using the sharing buttons.
For example, in the above screenshot, you can see that I have searched and opened a video. I haven’t downloaded it yet, but I have the option to share this one. Just need to tap the Share icon which I have marked in the screenshot.
Download HD Videos
When you tap the download icon within KeepVid app, you get the quality options to select to download which enables you to download the videos in HD, and even if you want the low-quality version, you can get that too.
Most of us want videos in HD as the viewing experience is great. And KeepVid enables you to get the best version of the videos which is one of the best features of this app.
These are some of the best features of KeepVid Android App. I am sure, by looking at the features you already learned how to download videos using KeepVid but don’t worry if you are yet to know the step by step process as I am going to write down the steps as well.
