Fresh Video Downloader is a convenient and free video downloading tool which makes it easy to grab clips from video sharing sites.

You might be browsing YouTube, for instance, when you find a clip you've like to keep. Just copy it to the clipboard, switch to Fresh Video Downloader, and the program will have picked up the URL already. Then click the OK button, choose where you'd like to save the clip, and it'll be speedily downloaded.

There are a (very) few options which might come in useful. So you can tell the program to always grab the highest available resolution of a YouTube clip, for instance, rather than just downloading whatever you're looking at. And Fresh Video Downloader allows you to enter the details of your HTTP proxy, if you use one.

But otherwise, that's about it. This is just a simple video download tool, light on resources (8MB RAM - private working set - on our test PC) that will fetch videos from most sites with no hassles at all.

Please note, you'll need to complete a free registration process with the authors to fully unlock the software.

Verdict

Fresh Video Downloader is an easy-to-use tool that makes it straightforward to download clips from video sharing sites
