Nowadays the Internet is filled with numerous resources that enrich our life and expand our horizons. Among the resources, online videos from video sharing sites hit the mainstream. Watching video, 4K video, and new 360 degree video is enjoyable, while sometimes we have to watch without Wi-Fi and play the videos in different format like MP4, AVI and even 4K HD . So one of the best effective methods to store online video is to convert URL to MP4 and other formats and stream it to portable gadgets when you are offline.
Here I’d like to share two handy ways on converting URL to MP4.
I know some people like to search target words on Google. It’s a quick way to find answers when you have a question, but often you need to spend a long time to find out the right answer from thousands of results. So do not waste your time and you have come to the right place. I used Free HD Video Converter Factory for several years and it has stunning moments on high quality video conversion and URL downloading.
Step 2: Paste the online video URL to the “Add New Download” window and click on “Analyze”. >> After short-time .url file analysis, you are able to choose your ideal video resolution and size before downloading task starts. Here I choose 4096*3072. >> Press “Download” button now.
Step 3: After the downloading task finishes, if you want to watch the video in other formats. You can choose an output format from the supported profiles (including H265) on the right, and then click “Run”.
Tip: The free URL to video converter set optimized parameters for many hot devices, such as iPhone, iPad, Samsung, PS4, Xbox One, BlackBerry, Nokia and 4K smart TVs as well as standard TVs.
And if you want customize settings, press “Settings” button at bottom right corner. Here you can change aspect ratio, bitrates, resolution, encoder, remove audio, increase and decrease original volume, etc.
The only limit is that the freeware don’t have a Mac version.
If you don’t like to install a program on your computer and do not have need on HD support and more output formats, these free online URL conversion sites are useful
It’s my favorite online video and audio conversion, which helps convert URL file to MP4, 3GP, MOV and AVI. It supports you to download and convert 4K video.
Limits: The downloading time is longer than the free YouTube URL to mp4 software. Besides, the supported output formats is not enough. And sometimes it does not work on my Mac.
Zamzar is also a commonly used URL converter, but it can’t support to convert YouTube URL now. It will enable you to convert URL to a wide range of video formats like 3GP, MOV, WEBM, AVI, FLV, WMV, MPG, MP4 and iPad/iPhone compatible formats.
It can easily download online video and convert URL with simple clicks. You can convert online video to MP4, FLV, 3GP and WEBM. When converting URL to MP4, you need to right click the download link and save ink as and rename file. It’s not a one step process.
