There is no doubt that many of our browsing hours are spent looking for videos in services streaming like YouTube, whether vlogs, music videos or video tutorials on any subject. Sometimes we may need to download a video to go watching it whenever we want as many times as we need, and on operating systems such as Windows we already have a few options available but, What about Linux users?
The solution for those who use the pingino operating system is called ClipGrab, a multiplatform tool that also allow us to download videos from other platforms like Vimeo or DailyMotion. It offers a good number of features and a few output formats, such as MP4, MP3 and OGV.
Their main features They are as follows:
- Search for videos in the program itself
- Download multiple videos at the same time
- Possibility to choose the download quality
- Add metadata to videos saved as MP3 files
Using it can't be easier. The only thing we have to do is search the web for a video that interests us or do it from the application itself, copy the URL, paste it into the program and choose the quality and download it.
If we go to the "Settings" menu we will find more options, including the ability to specify the default output folder, configure support for proxy connection, activate an icon for the system tray and some other settings.
For install ClipGrab on Ubuntu The only thing we have to do is add a repository. To do this we open a terminal –CTRL + ALT + T– and execute the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:clipgrab-team/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install clipgrab
And with this we will have ClipGrab installed in our operating system and ready to go. If you find it useful, leave us a comment telling us your experience using it.
