Houlo Video Downloader is a software tool that lets you save videos from a wide range of online video streaming sites and convert them to a variety of formats. This reformatting ability comes in very handy for users who want to have access to their videos on devices other than a PC, like a home entertainment system, tablet or smartphone.

The conversion feature offered by Houlo Video Downloader is particularly useful for those who own an old media player, tablet or smartphone that they want to give to their kids or take with them on an outdoors trip. Many older devices have trouble properly decoding some HD video formats and have relatively limited storage space. By using Houlo Video Downloader, you will have worry-free offline access to all of your videos, regardless of what you watch them on.

Houlo Video Downloader is more than just a tool to download videos from YouTube. In addition to being able to fetch and save videos from the world's most popular video sharing website, it can also get them from many other places, like VEVO, Dailymotion, Reuters Video, Vimeo, Nico Nico Douga, Twitch, Cracked, GodTube, Discovery, eHow, etc. It supports over 100 different online video streaming services, so if you find a video on the Internet, there is a very high chance that Houlo Video Downloader can download it for you.

For full HDTV quality, this handy tool supports downloading high-definition 1080p videos. If you have an HD TV or the latest home theater system, the videos you've downloaded can be enjoyed on them with no loss of quality. However, keep in mind that the source video must be available in 1080p resolution on the video streaming site to be able to download videos at that quality.

If you're like many of today's Internet users and get your music from video clips uploaded to YouTube and other online video sides, this program can instantly convert the video file to an MP3 song, allowing you to move it to a music player like an iPod or keep it in your PC's music collection.

Finally, one of the most useful features found in Houlo Video Downloader that many other programs in its genre lack is the "batch download and convert" mode. You specify the URLs of the videos you want to get, the format to convert them to and let the software do the rest of the work for you. The batch feature has many uses, like downloading all of the music videos for an album, saving several episodes of your favorite TV series or grabbing an entire series of online classes or instructional videos at once.
