Download videos from the likes of YouTube with Wondershare vDownloader

Video sites such as YouTube are great for watching entertaining clips, music videos and a whole bunch more. But what about videos you would like to save for posterity? There is no guarantee that a video you watch today will still be available tomorrow, and you may want to have the option of watching a clip when you do not have access to the internet. These are all situations in which Wondershare vDownloader can help, making it possible to download video from YouTube, Veco, Hulu and more.

There are various other video downloading tools available, and this is one that can be used in two different ways. Firstly, there are browser plugins available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, and this gives you a dedicated download button whenever you view a page that features a video. The second option is to simply browse your favorite video sites as normal and copy the URL of a video you are interested in.

As well as archiving purposes, there are lots of other uses for this tool. We’ve already mentioned that it can be used to allow videos to be watched when there is no internet connection available, but it is also useful to help overcome problems with a slow connection. Rather than enduring frustrating buffering and stop-start playback, just download the whole thing in advance and enjoy stutter-free viewing.

The videos you download might be in one of several formats including MP4 and FLV. Thankfully you will find that there is built in support for playback of these video types within the program so you do not need to worry about installing another player.


Support for a good selection of sites and wonderful ease of use makes this an absolute winner.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
