Convert Your Favorite Videos From YouTube, Dailymotion, Vevo, and Clipfish to MP3, MP4 And More…

August 27, 2014

Looking for a way to convert your favorite music videos to MP3? Look no further…  I have been on the hunt for an online YouTube video to MP3 converter and found quite a few; HOWEVER, I finally settled with a FREE service called – Online Video Converter. This service is cloud based, which means everything can be done to make the conversion by using your web browser, which means “no software to install”. I think the things that impressed me the most with is the built in search component, how fast the conversion takes place and that the end result of the conversion is excellent; PLUS, unlike many of the other services I tried, there are no surprise pop-up ad pages (that looked pretty shady to me).



Search for a video on YouTubeDailymotionVevo or Clipfish and copy & paste the link (URL) of the video in the first box, select the file type and press “convert”. Alternatively you can search for a Youtube video directly. Just enter the video title in the second form and press “search”

A Nice Google Chrome Extension to Convert Any Video from YouTube to High Quality MP4, FLV or MP3 for FREE

January 24, 2012

One of the rewards to maintaining a tech blog that has a strong emphasis toward reviewing (and testing) FREE software, is when a reader contacts you and points you in the direction of something that is good. The reader in this case, as a result of reading the past article, “Keep An Eye On This: Freemake Music Box” said this:

Today I want to share a free video converter with you. I just found it on CNET. Similar to FreeMake, but it has both windows and mac version.

Here is the product page:

And their chrome extension is good to. I can convert youtube to mp3 and download youtube clips one click.

Here is the link for chrome extension:

I hope that will be valuable and can help others.

Please keep going on. Thanks again.

If you notice, a couple web links of interest in terms of a video converter (called WonTube) is mentioned, but the one link that I especially was interested in was the link for the Google Chrome Extension (of WonTube).

Before I get into the description of the WonTube Chrome Extension, please note that the first link he reflected is to the Windows and Mac software versions of WonTube.  If you do not use Google Chrome, you may then be interested in the software version [ CLICK HERE ].

The Google Chrome Extension of WonTube is actually something I had been looking for; where I could, “on the fly”, straight from the Google Chrome browser window download YouTube videos and convert them to another video format or convert them to an audio format (such as MP3). By doing this, I do not have to exit the browser window to start up other software on the computer to perform the desired task.

The WonTube Extension, after installed, sort of threw me off due I was looking for a button at the top of the browser. Where the magic works here is when you go to the YouTube site. When you pull up the desired video that you want to work with, you will see two buttons embedded near the YouTube video title (see below for example). One button is labelled “Download Video” and the other button is labelled “Convert to mp3”. Click on your desired choice and you will be redirected to the WonTube conversion site where the conversion will (quickly) take place.  Following the conversion you will have the option to download the converted result.

WonTube Screenshot

To the reader of the blog, who contacted me about WonTube, What’s On My PC, says Thank You…  Nice find!

Download Videos from YouTube, Facebook, MTV, Other Sites

November 4, 2010

There are so many video downloaders and converters these days that it is hard to choose which one to go with. Today I present you another “FREE” video downloader by a developer called Freemake.

Freemake offers free programs developed as alternatives to popular paid software. “Free, easy and of high quality” are the fundamental principles of Freemake.

Freemake Video Downloader

At first, my attitude was, “just another downloader”; however, once I started using and testing the Freemake Video Downloader I was very impressed with the appealing appearance and the overall ease and smoothness of using the application. In other words, I was “sold”!

Freemake Video Downloader is an application that you install on your computer that will give you the ability to download videos from over 30 plus video supported sites, such as YouTube, Facebook, MTV, MTV Music, Google Video, Dailymotion, Megavideo, Metacafe, Vimeo, Veoh, Break, Stupidvideos, Photobucket,,, etc.

Typically, to download videos that you see, say on YouTube, you will need a third party application, such as this one, to grab the video you desire.

Freemake Video Downloader

With Freemake Video Downloader you can download and covert videos, to other formats, on the fly. Again, I found the this application a joy to use and most likely will be making this my main video downloader application.

Freemake Video Downloader

You can see Freemake Video Downloader in action by previewing the (full screen) video below.

HAMSTER – A High End Video Converter for FREE

July 25, 2010

In today’s world of technology we are presented with numerous devices that allow us to watch video (such as iPod, iPad, iPhone, PS3, PSP, Blackberry, xBox, Zune, Apple TV, iRiver, etc.). The gap we face is that a video (such as a movie) may play OK on one device, but not another. In order to bridge this gap you must have available to you a good video converter that can make the necessary audio and video configuration changes (i.e. resolution, bitrate, framerate, compression, etc.), on the fly, to match the required specifications of the device. Often, as part of the purchase of the device, you are given software to assist with video conversions; however, learning that software or even getting future upgrades is a problem.

The solution to all of these problems is in a NEW software video converter called HAMSTER.

HAMSTER Free Video Converter

Myself, I just started using HAMSTER and I must say it is one of the best, easy to use, video converters I have experienced. The components that I like the most is that it is nice looking in appearance, provides a step-by-step, 1-2-3 interface that is very easy to understand; AND MOST IMPORTANTLY you can specifically pick your device during the conversion process. I do not know of too many video converters that let you do that. As a matter of fact it provides the ability to select from over 200 devices. For example, I have a Blackberry. I can take a full size movie, put it through the HAMSTER process, select Blackberry from the list and HAMSTER will do the work to make it work on my Blackberry.

A Powerful, but Easy to Use Media Converter

July 17, 2010

When I find it necessary to convert video and/or audio files from one file format to another, the media converter that I currently reach for is Oxelon Media Converter.


As with many of the media converters currently available, Oxelon has the ability to convert to/from many different formats [see here]; however, what causes me to reach for this converter are (2)-two factors:

Seamless integration with Explorer allows you to keep working with files as usual. You can right-click on the selected files, choose “Oxelon – Convert to Video” or “Oxelon – Convert to Audio” from the menu, and select the media format. In this way you can quickly launch Oxelon Media Converter with the specified files and with the defined destination format. After that, you just click “Conversion” and the process is started!

Oxelon Media Converter is one of the few video/audio encoding tools that can use four threads to take advantage of quad-core multi-processor systems. The great news is that you can adjust maximal amount of threads in the Settings. So, it is possible to take advantage of high-speed multi-conversion even on an eight-core system (and more).

The integration with Windows Explorer allows you to complete the conversion process in three clicks, plus you can select numerous files at a time to do batch conversions.  Drag and Drop to the Oxelon interface is also supported. You can also play the selected video or audio directly from the Oxelon interface if necessary. It is truly a powerful converter that is easy to use!
