YTD – formerly known as YouTube Downloader – allows you to grab online videos fast, then convert them and play them on your favourite device.

Don't be fooled by the old name of this program – you can download videos from all kinds of online video portals, not just YouTube. Facebook, Bing Video and Dailymotion are some of the heavyweights among that list, but make sure you head over to the developer's website to see the full list.

This is perfect if you want to take your favorite videos with you wherever you go, as YTD Video Downloader allows you to re-encode videos in a number of different formats, ready to be imported onto your phone or tablet.

That makes holiday viewing much easier, as you won't have to rely on patchy (or non-existent) internet connections while away from home. Just load up the converted video on your device and you're ready to go.
