  1. I was just looking for a good medium to download and watch video clips from youtube – thanks for sharing it here – a wonderful service you are providing to the community !!!

  2. Can this be used for mobile? I generally use the torch browser for downloading onto PC, but was looking for a way to download videos to my mobile phone (and a general alternative since it’s always good to have one…)
