We all know that race between the buffer line and the playback line. Nothing is quite as annoying as when the video is loading slower than you’re watching it. TubeOffline has created the perfect solution, and it’s relatively foolproof. With their service, you can download online videos and save them to your computer.
No more pausing your video, and waiting for it to load or relying on a slow internet connection to enjoy your video. Saving a video directly to your computer also means you have access to it, even if the original poster deletes it (and dedicated YouTube users know this happens far too often). Just when you’ve found the perfect cooking clip or free episode of your favorite TV show on YouTube, it gets removed. If you save the video with TubeOffline, you’ll never have that “damn I should have saved that video” feeling again. Oh, and it’s free. You’d expect a service like this to have at least a monthly subscription fee, or force you to download software onto your computer, but they don’t have any of that.
While I think the layout of the site could be a bit cleaner, that shouldn’t deter you from using their awesome service. We’ve been told since elementary school not to judge a book by its cover, and that’s exactly the case for TubeOffline.
