A friend shared with you a URL of a video; you want to convert URL to video so that you can watch the video on other devices and even offline. Is there some kind of a URL converter that can directly download videos from URL provided?

Background Info: What's URL

URL is an acronym for Uniform Resource Locator and is a reference (an address) to a resource on the Internet. Or put it another way, it's the address of the page you are going to visit. By entering the URL of the videos, you can watch the videos on any browser.

Download and Convert Videos from URL on Windows and Mac

If you want to free download videos (including HD 1080p or HD 720p or even 4k videos) from online websites, including YouTube, Vimeo, VideoBash, Ted, etc., you can try Mac Video Downloader, the URL converter that we're to talk about in this post. Besides downloading videos from URL, this tool also helps to convert these videos into multiple video and audio formats, such as MP4, MOV, MKV, WMV, MP3, 3GP, FLV, WEBM, AVI, AAC and OGG. The Mac version works for users running OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mountain Lion, 10.8 and earlier.

For those with Windows 8.1/8/7/Vista, choose Windows Video Downloader instead. You can download the program to your computer and follow the tutorial below to convert URL to video.

Install and launch the URL converter you just downloaded. Click the "Paste URL" button on the primary window of the software.
