Social networks and video sites have become a popular means to share media contents with not only friends but also whoever is interested in your posts. FreeMake Video Downloader can help you grab and convert video from the Internet as it can strip the real URL of the file. Its intuitive interface supports various languages, which is an advantage for those who do not feel comfortable using a program in English.

FreeMake Video Downloader is above all very easy to use. It allows adding URLs by just copying and pasting them, and it also integrates with browsers to monitor the media on the web pages you visit. Thus, if you want to save a media file from the current page, just press the corresponding button and a new download job will be created. Download parameters can be set by default. This way you can specify the program the desired download quality, the action to perform on the downloaded files and the location to save the resulting files.

The program allows batch downloading but you can also set the maximum number of simultaneous downloads or limit their speed in order to minimize the negative impact on navigation. In addition, the program can run from the System Tray while doing its job. The application also supports connecting via proxy and it also lets you authenticate yourself in social networks accounts to download private videos.

In general, FreeMake Video Downloader is a program for those who favor usability over sophistication. This means that, while it will let you create download and conversion jobs easily, it will not let you take control over such aspects as codecs, bitrate, etc.
