from makHave you ever watched a video...

Have you ever watched a video on YouTube or another online site that you wanted to grab and save? And I bet you wanted it in a popular format like say, AVI or MPG right? Well then do I have a web tool for you!

Using Grab Tube’s Web Converter you can convert any online or downloaded video (.flv, .mp4, .3gp, .avi) and using their service, convert it to MP3, 3GP, AVI, FLV or MPG. This is really useful to grab a friend’s youTube video and throw it on your phone to share.

Let’s see how it works…

First we browse on over to where the converter lives and you will see a screen that looks like this:


The URL bar at the top of the screen let’s you simply paste a URL of an online video to download. Drop down the format next to it and hit the download button.


You will see the next screen with links to download the file to your computer. With the file, you can then use the service to convert it to another file type.


Click the link to download the file and save it to your computer.


Then after you have the file on your local machine, click the logo at the top of Grab Tube to take you back to the home page. Once there, browse to your file, choose the format to convert it to and hit the Convert file! button below.


Once the conversion is complete, you will get a link to download the newly converted video, like you see below. Now, you can do what you need to with it! Enjoy.image
