How simple is the user interface of TubeDigger?
TubeDigger comes with a very simple and easy to use interface that does not pose any difficulties in using it to download videos. You just need to paste the URL of the webpage that contains the video and the download starts automatically. You can find all the features and tools of the software on the home screen itself.
To download a video from the internet, copy the URL of the webpage that contains the video and paste it in the URL address bar at the top of the screen. Then press enter button next to the address bar to navigate to that webpage. The video download starts automatically once the webpage is loaded in the application.
You can view the download progress in the Download space present at the bottom of the screen. You can view all the downloads in this space.
For YouTube videos, you will be seeing a number of downloads in this space which will be equal to the different resolutions available for the video. For example, if the video is available in 480p, 720p, and 1080p, then you will be seeing three different downloads in this space.
But remember that not all the resolution of the videos will be downloaded. Only the resolution in which the video is playing on the webpage will be downloaded. If you want 1080p resolution of the video to be downloaded, then play the video in that resolution.
Even if the internet connection is slow, the software tries to detect the best possible bit rate for the video and tries to download it for you.
The buttons present at the left side of the address bar allows you to refresh the page and stop loading the page.
The D-L mode button at the top right corner of the window allows you to switch between the record mode and download mode.
In the below screenshot, you can see that a video from the DailyMotion site is getting downloaded in the resolution in which it is being played.
The below screenshot shows a video downloaded from Vimeo site.
This tool allows you to record live streaming videos just like downloading a video. You cannot download a live streaming video. In that case, you can switch to the record mode and start recording the live streaming. But remember to switch back to the download mode once you finished recording the video.
To convert a video from one format to a different format, click on the convert button at the bottom.
Then select the video file that you wish to convert in the input file area. And select the output format to which you like to convert the video. You can also select the quality of the converted video and other parameters of the output video file.
Also, select the destination location where you wish to save the converted video on your PC. Finally, click on the convert button to start the conversion.
The conversion process is pretty much quick and fast and exhibits performance that is equivalent to a professional converter software. For me, it took only 1 minute 50 seconds for converting 5 minutes 1080P resolution video.
You can find the various settings of the software in this area. You can choose a homepage that you wish to display whenever you open the software. You can also change the output location of the downloaded video. You will be finding different download related settings in this space.
Clicking on this button will simply take you to the folder where the downloaded videos are saved.
