    Default DamnVid - A GUI Video Downloader/Converter for Ubuntu

    DamnVid - A GUI Video Downloader/Converter for Ubuntu

    DamnVid is a cross-platform application to download and convert videos from your hard drive or from dozens of video sharing websites like YouTube, Dailymotion, Veoh, Metacafe, etc. Basically, itís a video downloader and converter that sucks less.

    What is DamnVid ?

    * A video converter, first and foremost. It makes use of the wonderful FFmpeg library, used in other software like VLC Media Player or Google Chrome.
    * A video downloader. While DamnVid can convert local video files just fine, it can also download video streams from most video sharing websites. But what gives it the edge over other video downloaders and converters is that not only it does both the downloading and the converting, but it does them at the same time: it converts as it downloads, making the whole process much faster.
    * A cross-platform software that sucks less.

    What isnít DamnVid ?

    * A video editor. While it can do basic things like change the resolution, aspect ratio, or volume of the video, DamnVid is by no means a video editor.
    * A video player. DamnVid never plays anything.
    * A media library. DamnVid organizes its videos into customizable folders, but it stops there.
    * A DVD ripper.
    * A stable program. Seriously. It just sucks less. Everything is relative.

    Install Damnvid in Ubuntu

    First you need to download latest version of .deb from here now you need to install this .deb package by double clicking or using the following command from your terminal

    sudo dpkg -i damnvid_1.5-1_i386.deb
