  1. My apologies if I'm posting on the wrong forum or inappropriate area.

    I'm interested in finding a reliable Android video downloader which allows downloads of YouTube videos.

    If this is an incorrect forum, could you please share a better forum where independent, objective evaluations of Android video downloaders is discussed?

    Thank you so much.

    I'm moving you to our video streaming section. The capturing section is mainly for analog video.

    Nope. I haven't used any android youtube downloader.... I prefer youtube-dl for Windows. Maybe you can find some Android build for it.

    Good luck. I've heard Google doesn't allow anything specifically intended for downloading YouTube videos on the Play store, so you'll probably end up having to find and install the downloaders' APKs manually.

    I've been using keepvid.com in the Android version of Firefox to download YouTube videos, so I probably won't be of much help.

  5. Hi Ai Haibara,

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts.

    Pls. forgive my ignorance but can the Android version of Firefox be downloaded to an Android tablet?

    If so, could I then download and install software from keepvid.com to download YouTube videos.

    Thank you again for your kind help.

  6. Hi ezcapper,

    Thank you for sharing that.

    Is there any site or blog which shares independent, objective reviews of Android apps?

    Every-time I visit CNET I hear Chris Berman shouting "C'mon, man!"

    Thanks so much.

    Yes, you can install the Android version of Firefox to a tablet (I have it installed on our old Nexus 7). You don't need to install anything from keepvid.com in order to use the site to download YouTube videos, however. In fact, you should theoretically be able to use keepvid.com through most, if not all, Android browsers.

  8. Hi Ai Haibara,

    Thank you very much for clarifying that I should be able to download YouTube videos using just the Android version of FireFox on my tablet.

    Did you then download the FF add-on by Paul Saint for FF? - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/media-downloader/?src=cb-dl-mostpopular

    Or have you found another (better/just as good) video downloader add-on for FF that you use?

    Thank you again.

    No. I've had no problems using keepvid, so I haven't seen the need to download or use anything else.

  10. not sure why this is an issue but on my samsumg s4 (lollipop?), using the generic browser called "internet", i just play the video, set to full screen, press long and a "save video" prompt appears (no additional app downloads).

  11. Hi Ai Haibara,

    Pls. forgive my confusion but is keepvid an application built into FF-Android?

    Or must you download it and install?

    Thank you.

  12. Hi tugshank,

    In my best "Seen on TV" voice - could it be that easy?!

    keepvid.com

    a website
    i believe you have to copy the youtube URL and past it into the box at keepvid.com

  14. Hi thewizard,

    So, it doesnt matter which browser you use (FF, IE, Chrome) becauce any will allow you to copy and paste the YouTube url into the keepvid website and then that website allwos for downlaoding the vidoe somehow?

    I've never used a third party site to download as you can simply download using FF -Windows without the need of any third party.

    I think that's what tugshank was suggesting with using the generic browser called "internet"

    I haven't tried that yet so I don't know if it has any trouble with YouTube videos.

    Thanks so much for clarifying that keepvid is a website/service and not some application I can add to FF-Android.

    No need to use Keepvid.

    I came across this app from the xda forum, it's fast, free, and doesn't have any ads, you can download any quality video, works great.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2137743
    Make sure to go into its settings and under Advanced, tick "enable advanced features - download FFmpeg plugin", didn't work for me without that enabled.
    You just use the official YouTube app, click on the share button for the video you want to get and choose YouTube video downloader, from the list.

    Hope that helps!

  16. Hi Chris,

    Thank you so much for sharing that!

    Pls. forgive my ignorance, but has that app been vetted for badware or conflicts with other software on your tablet?

    I've had software conflicts in Windoze and unlike Linux which can detect potential conflicts MS doesn't do that.

    Again, my sincere gratitude for all your kind help.

    Best.

    Hi Baldrick,

    I'm trying to install this for a Windows 10 laptop.

    Must I also download that ffmeg file, too?

    Thank you.

  20. Would you recommend the 2.25 portable version? The next one seems to be for Pre-Windows.

    Thank you.
