VidMate is a free video downloader app for Windows 10 that's compatible with popular video-sharing websites like YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo.

If you're like most people, you've found videos or music on sites like YouTube that you'd like to save for viewing when you're away from an internet connection, but video-sharing websites typically don't offer a download feature. VidMate is an app that steps in to fill that void by capturing the video stream from the website and saving it as a file on your device. It's one of a plethora of video download tools that are available as either standalone apps or browser plugins. These downloaders have become a popular way to collect both videos and music for personal use.

VidMate has a set of handy features that make video downloads easier to manage. It lets you choose the resolution and format you want to save to your computer from the choices available from the website from which it’s downloaded. For instance, YouTube offers videos in a several different resolutions to suit your screen size. VidMate will automatically detect these versions of the video and offer you a choice of which one to save to disk. This can help if you're storing your downloads in a limited space like a flash drive.

VidMate offers over 20 different video-sharing websites that it can access from its interface, so you can search for videos without need of another program or web browser. Websites that it supports include Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, DailyMotion, Vine, and Tumblr. You can also add additional sites that don't appear on the default list when the app is installed.
