ClipConverter : The Tool to Download, Clip, and Convert Web Videos

ClipConverter : The Tool to Download, Clip, and Convert Web Videos.
In an ideal world, everybody would have a perfect internet connection and we could watch streaming web videos on any gadget without a glitch. But we’re not living in an ideal world, and many of us have to spend ten minutes (or more) waiting for the video page to load just to watch a one-minute video. Besides a slow internet connection, people prefer to watch downloaded web videos instead of streaming the content to their device because they want to play those videos on non-streaming-capable mobile devices, burn the videos onto CDs/DVDs or play them on TV.

Meet ClipConverter (http://www.clipconverter.cc/). This tool is no ordinary web video downloader because it also allows users to clip and convert web videos before downloading them.

Just Add the URLs
If you want to use ClipConverter only to download a web video, all you need is the video URL. ClipConverter supports many web video services like YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, and direct download video links. You can also upload videos from your hard drive to be converted.
The power of ClipConverter lies in its ability to convert web videos to the format that you want/need, including audio only. Here are the supported media formats :
- Audio : MP3, AAC, WMA, M4A, OGG
- Video : MP4, 3GP, AVI, MPG, WMV, FLV
Another great feature of ClipConverter is the ability to clip web videos. You can choose to either download the full video or only a specific part of it.

Taking the Shortcut
If you do a lot of web video downloading and converting, repeatedly copying and pasting video URLs is impractical. It is easier and faster to do the process straight from the video sites.
There are two ways to do that. ClipConverter provides users with a browser add-on/ extension (available for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari), and a bookmarklet (for other browsers, or as a complimentary tool to the add-on). If your browser is supported, you can download and install the tool.

With the add-on enabled, you’ll have an additional button on the video sites: the ClipConverter button. Clicking on it will bring you to the ClipConverter site to process the video. The same thing will happen if you click the bookmarklet button when you are viewing a video page.

If you love watching and downloading web videos, you’ll find ClipConverter very useful. So go ahead and use the service. It’s free.
