    "I've always wanted to rip videos from a place like Vimeo or YouTube, and this does it in a snap. Easy to use interface and everything is intuitive. Rips videos in no time and organizes everything, and also allows me to watch it on my phone, which is a big plus."

DID YOU KNOW?

The HBO show High Maintenance by Janky Clown Productions begun as a web series on Vimeo. It premiered as a comedy web series on November 11, 2012. In 2016, High Maintenance started airing as a television show on September 26, 2016. As a web series on Vimeo, the comedy-drama had six seasons with an average of three episodes per season. Since it became a television series under HBO, it has three seasons as of 2019 and is set to have its fourth season soon. The comedy show is one of many other Vimeo originals that aim to support female filmmakers. After all, Vimeo became known for being a video sharing platform for indie filmmakers.

Vimeo is also known as a competitor to YouTube since they have the same video viewing services. Although it's also interesting to note that Vimeo was around before YouTube. The former was launched in November 2004 and the latter in February 2005. Although YouTube became the more mainstream platform, Vimeo is still a strong competitor. Unlike YouTube, Vimeo offers no-ads in their videos which make it a good outlet for filmmakers. Vimeo also offers high definition streaming on its content. Although you can watch them online, you can also download Vimeo videos for offline view. You can download the Vimeo app and tap the “Make Available Offline” on the video you want to watch. YouTube also has an offline option but there are other ways to download YouTube videos. If you want to watch the video outside the Vimeo app, you can use a Vimeo downloader to save your favorite videos.

    "This is obviously unnecessary, but for some people, I guess they need it. Some people, like my wife. I wish she would just drop dead. Or that I could shrink her, and feed her to our daughter. Alas. So I installed the Vimeo downloader on her desktop system, and now she's as happy as a pig in mud. She can go to Vimeo and just click on download and snag the horrid crap she calls music without difficulty. I guess that's good."

I however, don't agree with the price tag, which is why I haven't purchased it myself. Decent program if you don't mind shelling out some cash."

    "I've used this app before and it doesn't always work. When it does it works really well. When it doesn't, it can be quite frustrating. It does give the option of using a trial version first to see how it works out for you. That was a nice feature. I want something more reliable if i'm going to pay for it; and i want to test it before I decide to buy. This gave me a chance to test it out, see it's reliability and make a decision. I think it could be much better. "

    "Im always bumping into music i like on youtube. Most often its bands or artist i had never heard of. Using onlinevideoconverter.com i am able to grab the link and paste it into the address bar and pick the format i would like. Most often its .mp3 as i want to just enjoy the song for the music and not so much the video. You can pick many formats though, Audio and Video formats. The site is kind of slow on the conversion but that could be due to traffic on the site."
