With so many commercial programs in the market claiming they’re the best video downloading solution out there, you would think that a free one won’t stand a chance. xVideoServiceThief is the free application that comes to proves that you don’t have to spend any money in order to take advantage of a powerful and effective video downloading solution.

I’m pretty sure that many will agree with me when I say that one of the best things about xVideoServiceThief is the fact that it supports downloading video from a wide range of websites.
While most video downloaders only support YouTube and maybe a few other websites, xVideoServiceThief supports no less than 93 websites, including the most popular adult ones. Whether you want to download a video from YouTube, Yahoo, Google Videos, Metacafe or other video streaming website, xVideoServiceThief is the easiest and fastest way of achieving this purpose.

Anyway, the support for a large variety of websites is just one of the many advantages provided by this tool. Another one is the fact that it can also convert the downloaded videos to the most common video file formats, such as AVI, MPEG, 3GP or MP4. It can also download them as MP3 audio files. As you can see, it makes the downloaded videos ready to be played on portable devices like iPhones or iPads.

It can also batch download multiple videos at once, supports performing scheduled downloads and allows pausing and resuming the downloads. Furthermore, it allows blocking websites, therefore the adult ones can be filtered out from the download lists. There’s also a handy session manager that can save and restore the download tasks automatically.

As you can see, this tool shows that the saying “best things in life are free” often describes a true fact.
