KeepVid is a popular online service that lets you download videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and other similar websites. Even though KeepVid has been a number one choice for video downloading, sometimes it just doesn't work out. For example it is not responsive sometimes for a couple of hours, sometimes for a couple of days. It is frustrating and makes you wondering how to download those videos on time, right when you want it.
