Among the hundreds of video sites available on the Web, VideoGet is capable of downloading videos from more than 750 of them, including YouTube, Vimeo, MetaCafe, MySpace, DailyMotion, and Google Videos, to name but a few. Its support for a wide range of video formats allows the program to download HQ and HD YouTube videos and convert all your downloaded videos on the fly into your favorite codecs.

VideoGet can download any number of videos from different sites simultaneously, though you can always limit this number to a figure that your system can cope with. Likewise, you can also limit the number of simultaneous video conversions, enable or disable all re-encoding processes, and even prioritize one task over the other. The program can also be set to start downloading the next video on the list while the conversion process is taking place in the background.

Conversion tasks, when enabled, can be fully customized to meet your preferences. From the codec to the video frame rate, from the video size to the video quality, and from the audio sampling rate to the audio encoder to be used, nearly all key elements that affect the quality of the converted file can be personalized. Note that whatever conversion settings you select, these will be equally applied to all the files on the download/conversion list.

Unless you decide differently during the installation process, VideoGet will install itself as a plug-in to your Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, if present. This will allow you to download and convert any streaming video with just one click and without leaving the video site.

VideoGet offers a simple and clear interface where you can download and convert your favorite online videos in one single process. The entire task can be automated very easily, allowing you to enjoy your videos while VideoGet grabs and re-encodes them into formats that your playback devices can use.
