DamnVid is a platform that allows you to download and convert videos quickly and simply from a database of many main sites where this type of content is stored. Thanks to this system, you can take to your computer or any mobile device the videos uploaded to sites such as YouTube, DailyMotion, or Vimeo, to mention a few.
The exciting thing is that apart from downloading, this system has format conversion options in the same procedure, allowing you to select the output format to adapt to the use you want to give to the videos. This way, supposing you want to later play those videos on your smartphone or some special equipment, they will be downloaded in a compatible format.
To understand how DamnVid works, you should know that everything is as simple as first selecting the video you want to download through the link and then choosing a playback device. That is to say, you can select your iPod, an Apple phone or an Android, a DVD, or simply a PC in case you want to play it with Windows Media Player or VLC, for example.
Of course, this program has an integrated search engine that will allow you in just seconds to review the contents of the main sites of the segment, among which we can find those, as mentioned earlier, but also Veoh or Metacafe. Thus, even when you don't see the video you are interested in on YouTube, you can also find it through some other platform, a not minor detail regarding saving time.
You don't even need to open your browser, to search for videos since you can browse within this platform. However, we have noticed that the amount of results displayed is not always as vast as the one we can see when we access YouTube through Chrome, for example. If you don't find exactly the video you're looking for; you should open the browser anyway before giving up.
Once you have selected the videos you want to download, you should know that we also have software that can process batches. You can download several videos simultaneously without having to worry about them. In these cases, you can determine an output profile for each video, so you can continue doing other tasks while the software works in the background.
Of course, we said before that this program has conversion functions, and the truth is that, in that sense, we can even use it as a system completely independent of its downloading possibilities. All you have to do is select some of the videos you have stored on your hard drive, then an output format, and then you can convert them even if you haven't finished downloading them.
What kind of devices does this platform allow us to convert videos for? For most of the famous ones, at least in output formats, we can mention iPod compatibility, HD type, Flash, MP3 -which trims the video storing only the audio-, iPhone 3GS or PSP. Of course, this opens the range to an infinity of all playback equipment.
And beyond all that, we have often criticized that programs of this type do not allow generating new default profiles beyond those that come from the origin so we will highlight it as one of the significant advantages of DamnVid. Thus, if you know that you will always convert your videos to the same format, you can leave them stored in the program's memory to use that customization whenever you want.
The minimal consumption of system resources that this software performs is undoubtedly another of its strong points, considering that it offers a stable and smooth performance even on computers that are not overpowered. It is, therefore, a tool that will solve the issues of downloading and converting videos for the vast majority of users without too many complications.
Even though it is not a strong point, this software has some small editing tools for the videos that allow us to make small changes that we should not forget to consider. If, for any particular reason, you want to make minor modifications to your files, check DamnVid's editing options before opening a separate editor.
As negative points of DamnVid, perhaps we can mention that it does not have an integrated video player, something that some of its main competitors in the market offer, nor a Library of media to be able to visualize them all from the same program. It is an excellent option when we want to search, download or convert videos to watch later on all mobile devices.
