xVideoServiceThief Plugin Download & Apk 2.4.1/1.7.1 Free

Downloading videos off the web has been an occupation as old as online video has existed. I remember the olden days when Flash Video was ubiquitous. I felt smart when I realized I could retrieve video files from my browser cache folder.

A simple sorting and a search for a sizable file were enough to pinpoint the target. Then, I just had to add in the SWF extension and Voilà! The file was playable offline. But then they switched to HMTL5 video and my method was obsolete. Bummer, right?

xVideoServiceThief Plugin Download

As some of you know, downloading videos is still very much possible via special browser add-ons. However, not all work on every site and besides that, you might want to be more subtle when on a shared computer. So a dedicated application is probably the better choice.

xVideoServiceThief (yes, no spaces) is a computer app that not only downloads videos from almost any web source but can also convert said videos to some different media formats. The process is simple.

To retrieve a video, you only need to copy the web address of the page the video is on. Then in xVideoServiceThief (xVST) you click on Add Video and paste the address in the pop-up menu bar.

Be careful, though, as, by default, the process is entirely automated. That means the download will start immediately and when it’s done, xVST will begin converting the video file, after which it will delete the original. “What?!” you might say out loud as a surprising news.

Well, if you like to take your time and make sure that everything goes as planned, then you might want to uncheck some boxes. On the bottom of the app’s window, you will find boxes for automatic download and conversion. Uncheck those, and you’ll be okay.

However, in case you do want your videos converted with xVST, then you should leave the conversion checkbox alone, as conversion can only occur immediately after a download is completed. There is no other way. Changing your mind after a download means that you need to download the file again. A bit of an inconvenience agreed.

On the bright side, you may pause downloads at any time, and you can also schedule download intervals. For example, you may set a large list to commence downloading at night, since nobody likes to watch download progress bars, nor get his bandwidth squeezed while playing a mmorpger or something.

Regarding parental locks, you can find a list of supported video sites in the options menu. Only add unwanted sites on the blocked list.

A more efficient way would be to restrict access to p0rn downloads altogether since kids these days can easily find their way through an options menu.

Enabling this master restriction will gray out the download “Ok” button for links to adult web pages. Of course, what you should be worried of instead is where did they get the links.

XVideoServiceThief is a powerful open source tool for downloading clips from more than 90 popular video sharing sites.

xVideoServiceThief 1.7.1 Apk download.

This smart download manager has also landed on other platforms like Linux and MacOS, but for the time being, there’s no APK available for Android. As an alternative to tablets and smartphones, your best option is probably downloading Tubemate, since it doesn’t look like there will ever be a version for mobile devices. xVideoServiceThief 1.7.1 is an outdated version.

Downloading a clip is easy. Just click the Add New button, paste in the page URL, and the program will grab a copy for you. Even if it’s one of those longer URLs you might get sometimes – (www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcmvwWRqOn4&feature=g-logo&context=G27fa56dFOAAAAAAABAA), say.

Most of the clips will download as Flash video (FLV) files, but if that’s a problem, then you can have xVideoServiceThief automatically convert them to AVI, WMV, MP4 and other formats (see the Basics section of the Options dialog). The program uses the popular FFmpeg tool to make this happen so that you can be sure of quality results. xVideoServiceThief 2.4.1 Apk version is the latest one.

The list of web services that xVideoServiceThief can download videos from is endless. Some are no longer available, like Stage6, and others don’t work at the moment, like Metacafé.

However, YouTube, DailyMotion, Google Video, 123video, ZanyVideos, and tons of other sites are compatible with xVideoServiceThief. Of course, you can also find websites that host adult videos on the list, as well.

xVideoServiceThief can also convert videos to different formats including AVI (by default), WMV, MPEG, MP4, 3GP and MP3. It’s also possible to adjust the resolution, the number of frames per second, and the bit rate.

From the options panel, you can change the language of the program’s interface and also restrict the pages that the program works with.

Is it legal to download videos using XVideoServiceThief?

Downloading videos from YouTube and similar video-sharing sites seems like a no-brainer: you avoid any irritating adverts, you can watch the video when you’re offline, and you don’t have to stop enjoying the video if it gets taken down later. But will it get you into trouble?

More seriously, downloading copyrighted material can lead you into legally shady areas. Legally speaking, any content you download from the web for which you do not own the copyright must be for your personal use only: you must not distribute or financially benefit from it.

It must also come with the express permission of the copyright owner. To be safe, it’s always a good idea to contact the YouTube member who uploaded the video initially and ask for their permission before you plunder the archives.

Whether you are likely to get caught breaking the rules is another matter, and many, many YouTube users happily download copyright-protected content on a regular basis without getting into trouble. But you should be aware of the rules before you get started. Apparently, Macworld cannot endorse any non-permitted use of copyright material.
