Downloading videos from any website for free and without the help of programs, such as Atube.me, can be a complicated task. However, there are other simpler methods that do not require the installation of applications. Which can be useful when there is not enough time to sit in front of the computer to wait while you install tools that take up a large amount of space on the hard disk and that you will only need on some occasions.
In this sense, extensions or alternative websites allow you to download videos from the Internet with good quality in less time. Best of all, some of them can be used from your cell phone, so you can download .MP4 files from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other platform without having to use your computer. You can learn how to use each of these alternatives in this post.
With alternative websites
Pages that allow you to download videos from the Internet are not always effective. However, there are a lot of options that work and allow you to download files in .MP4 format in just a few minutes. They are described below:
It is a website that allows you to download videos from YouTube and other web pages without the need to install programs or pay expensive memberships.

While the second is to use the quick shortcut, writing “pp” (Without quotes) at the end of the word “YouTube” in the URL.
For example: www.youtubepp.com/Watch …
It is similar to the previous tool, it is used to download YouTube content for free and without external programs. As with y2mate, with Savefrom.net you have the option of entering the site es.Savefrom.net, downloading manually by copying and pasting the video link or accessing directly by typing “ss” before the word YouTube, in the url.

Its platform is extremely simple and the procedure itself does not take more than a couple of minutes. Just go to the Downloadvideosfrom site and copy the link in the corresponding box, then select the output format and choose where to save the file.

FB Down Private
It is a different section of the aforementioned FB Down. In this you can save files of private Facebook profiles, even when you cannot view them in the social network natively. However, Fbdown.net/private-downloader.php requires a couple of extra steps.
Once inside the wall or biography from where you want to get the video, press “Ctrl + U”. This will open the source code, which you will have to copy and paste into the download field of the site in question.
It works as an extension that is added in the form of a button under the YouTube video player. It allows you to download videos from this platform for free in FLV and MP4 formats, the latter even in HD quality if the file supports it. Go to Kwizzu.com

On the other hand, FLVTO.biz also has a web version in which you can paste the link and convert it to different formats, including MP3, to later download it to your computer or cell phone.
Using browser extensions
Another quick way to download videos from the Internet is by using browser extensions. These tools allow you to download files with the push of a button. Although there are many available in the Chrome Web Store, the most recommended is Video Downloader Plus.
With it you can download MP4 content from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other long list of websites. However, like many other tools, it does not support downloading from YouTube.
In case none of the above options convinces you enough, you will always have the option of using programs or desktop applications that help you perform tasks like the one mentioned throughout this post. Among the most used are VLC Media Player and VideoGrabber.net. The latter works as a converter and screen recorder, as well as allowing the downloading of videos from different sources on the Internet.
