There are many ways to download YouTube videos, there are many ways to drive a car too. But, since we are not talking about cars here, let’s talk about another amazing way to download a YouTube video to your Dropbox account. Yes, you heard me right. Dropbox could most likely be the best online cloud storage service to have knocked on our computer doors yet. It’s easy to use and you get free 2 GB storage when you sign up, or you could buy an HTC phone and get another 3Gb with that.
Anyways, here’s an awesome web service that does something extraordinary. Videodropper, as it’s known, let’s you send any YouTube video to your Dropbox folder located on your iOS device such as iPhone or iPod Touch. That means, it literally let’s you download any YouTube video on to your iPhone or iPod Touch. Pretty slick, don’t you think. This is a new web service and it works great. All you have to do is head over to Videodropper.ep.io and then provide the YouTube URL that you would like to download and send to your iOS app.
Once you’ve decided what video you want to download, just paste the URL and click on Send to Dropbox. You also have the option to optimize the video for your iPhone or iPod Touch before you send it to your Dropbox folder. That way, it’s already compressed to run great on your mobile device.
Now, head over to your iOS app, this currently works only on iPhone and iPod Touch, and then wait for the video to be downloaded. It’ll take about 2 minutes, depending on your internet speed, to get the whole thing done, including the conversion. And then, you’ll have the video downloaded on your device like in the screenshot below.
And there you have it. Another simple way to download YouTube videos, but this time, directly your Dropbox account. YouTube to Dropbox, direct service, thanks to the amazing Videodropper.
Do use this service and let us know how amazing did you find it?
