Videodropper : Send YouTube Videos to Dropbox

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?

Go Back in Time with Video Time Machine App for iOS

We all love the idea of a Time machine and we’d all love to go back in time just for the sake of it. Unfortunately, it’s quite impossible as Scientist say. However, if you have an iPhone or iPad, then things can really get magical.

Video Time Machine is an iOS application that will literally take you back in time, till the year 1860 that is and show you videos from way back. The best part is that you don’t need to have a Hot-tub or the De Lorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future. You just need an Apple iPad and some internet.

The app consists of over 4,000 videos on various topics such as Music, TV, NEWS, Sports, Games, Television, Ads etc. You can browse between all the years and watch various videos right from the app. It’s just like going back in time, to a year before you even existed and watch an interview or a TV ad. It’s truly magical and exciting.

You can also use the Random button to randomly browse through all those years and the app will automatically play some random video from a random year. I used random too many times, that’s also magical I suppose or downright stupid. Anyways, the developers of this app also happened to come across the idea for it while drinking beer and eating Pizza.

I’d be more than happy to meet these guys, way to go developers of Video Time Machine. They’re still working on the app and adding all the more videos that they can get a hold on. You can also share the video that you’re watching on Facebook and Twitter right from the app.

You can download Video Time Machine from the App store for only $0.99. I think it’s worth it, because you won’t find a better organized history time travel based application or video collection anywhere else.
