5 Best Alternative Apps For VidMate YouTube Video Downloader

Vidmate is perhaps the most popular Android, iOS, Windows OS and recently Blackberry application that allows you to search, view, and download from hundreds of video sites such as Youtube and Facebook. The one big obvious plus point of Vidmate is the availability of offline viewing, without buffering or stalling due to insufficient internet speed. Other features of the app, and other similar apps, include options to pause, stop and resume options for videos, downloading large video and audio files, different formats like MP4, AVI,MOV,3GP, MPEG and other commercially popular video formats.

Apps like this one will also support simultaneous file download and will work in the background unobtrusively. We have gathered a list of 5 alternatives of the Vidmate app, which are listed below in order of preference.

1.)  TubeMate: This is probably the most popular and widely used video-downloading apps in the market. Devian Studio develops this app. Downloading YouTube videos directly to a mobile phone is extremely easy with this app. By default, Tubemate will download video to the user’s SD card installed on the device.

The latest version for Android users adds headset control support. It allows you to have your favorite videos on your device's SD card to watch them whenever you want. Searching any video in the search bar and pressing the green arrow at the bottom of the screen will do the trick. Selecting the video quality like 480p, 720p and above is done simultaneously. The downloaded video can be connected and used on other devices as well. Download TubeMate here.

2.)  KeepVid: The Keepvid application was first available for Windows use only, and only offering online use. The online service can fetch videos in selectable video resolution formats from a wide range of websites, which include popular options likeYoutube, Facebook, Dailymotion, Metacafe and Vimeo. The premium Keepvid Pro will work on Windows and Mac. Besides, dedicated services like Keepvid Music,downloading, recording and sharing music is also possible. Keepvid Pro also works on niche sites like funnyordie.com and Liveleak.com. Download Keepvid here.

3.)  SnapTube: SnapTube offers all of the other features plus some extra ones like video search including keywords, dedicated curating teams for choosing videos and seamless transition from downloading, recording, uploading, sharing and managing. This app works only on Android. The download file size for the installer is light, spam-protected and ad-free. Download it here.

4.)  4K Video Downloader: The 4K Video Downloader, as the name suggests, is applicable for downloading high quality videos too. Besides videos, one can download audio, subtitles and full playlists from Youtube as well. This app works on the Windows, Linux and the Mac OS. 4K Video Downloader is free for unlimited downloads, but can download only playlists of25 videos and no further. This restriction is done away when a licensed copy is purchased.

One key feature of this app is that it allows download of video subtitles too, if they are available. It also supports 60 fps videos. The installer file is not bloated and the latest. Download it here.

5.)  Freemake Video Converter: This is specially for the iPad, iPod, PSP and the Xbox. This is capable of converting various file formats and can rip videos as well. It can also create photo slideshows and has various video, audio and picture converting and sizing options. One drawback is that this is a bundleware, with other software coupled in.
