Xilisoft Online Video Converter is a video downloader and converter. It is basically a web browser that you can use to browse many video-sharing websites and then download videos straight from the application. This application can download videos from YouTube, Break, NICONICO, Vimeo, DailyMotion and Metacafe, among others. There are two different ways in which you can download videos. First, you can browse the website you want to download videos from and when you have found the video that you want to download, you can click on the "Download" button. Or you can paste a video URL to add a video to the download queue.
The converter is tightly integrated with the downloader. Both functions coexist in the same window. At the bottom of the screen, you will notice a drop-down menu. That is where you select the format that you want to convert videos to. By default, all the videos will be converted to MPEG4, but you can choose to not convert videos at all or choose another format. There are conversion profiles for gaming consoles and plenty of Apple devices.
In my testing, both functions worked just fine. This is a very complete downloader and converter, although the $39 price tag is a bit high.
