Web Site of the Week: KeepVid
The premise of KeepVid could not be simpler. Just copy and paste a link from YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, DailyMotion, and other supported sites and select Download. The program then downloads the video or audio onto the user’s computer free of charge. While KeepVid is safe and legal, readers will want to be careful about how they use their downloaded content. For
instance, downloading the latest Taylor Swift video to one’s computer is legal. However, using that video for profit or any public purpose is usually a violation of copywrite laws. Nevertheless, for readers who would like to download their favorite videos from YouTube and other sites,
KeepVid is an excellent resource. [CNH]
