When I need to download a streaming video from a site like YouTube or Vimeo, or convert the video to an audio MP3 to listen to, I use KeepVid.com. Here’s how to use it.

KeepVid download links

  1. Copy the URL (web address) of the streaming video you want to download.
  2. Browse to KeepVid.com.
  3. Paste the address into the bar at the top and click Download.
  4. KeepVid will generate links to download the video in several formats and resolutions. The formats may include FLV, MP4, WebM, and 3GP. For some videos, you’ll also get a link for audio MP3.
  5. Click the link to download the file you want. Don’t click the large, graphical download buttons! Those are ads. If you click MP3, you’ll be taken to SnipMP3.com, a site that converts video to MP3, which can take quite a while.
  6. Enjoy your downloaded file offline!
