Ever since YouTube was launched, online video streaming has become a well-known trend. Websites like Meta cafe, Daily motion, and Vimeo have come up to challenge the world-famous video streaming/broadcasting website (now owned by Google). New and new features are added to these websites (and apps) every now and then, like, live streaming, creating a playlist, and yes, 360-degree video (for those VR-savvy people out there). But there is still a major feature missing from all these websites and apps, download. These websites do not allow users to download their favourite videos as a part of some ‘privacy disclaimer’. To cope up with this (and many other problems), VidMate app was launched.
*Last Updated on 29th November 2022*
Back in 2016, a group of highly skilled individuals created an app that would allow its users to stream, convert, and even download videos from almost every video streaming website. It was accepted warmly and the app became an overnight success. VidMate 2018 is quite famous in Asian countries like India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. and it has been downloaded more than 180 million times (since its release) and it even has a surprising user count of over 400, 000 per day. Everywhere, people are liking the app and it has even started to be featured in popular YouTube users’ channels. The app with such potential is surely a threat to popular video streaming websites, so Google has removed the app from Google Play. But you can still download it online.
Among the tens of thousands of reviewers for this Android app, the top one is CNET. CNET seems to be very happy with VidMate download 2018 and the app has got a whopping 4.7/5 by them, which is spectacular. Other reviewers include Softonic, CCM, 9Apps, etc. Vidmate 2018 is widely praised by all, and as of today, it is regarded as the best video downloader/converter for Android. VidMate advanced algorithm allows it to download videos from YouTube, Meta cafe, Vimeo, Daily motion, and even from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Never ever has a video downloader been so advanced, but VidMate download 2018 is here to break all stereotypes.
VidMate versus other video downloaders
There are tons of reasons why VidMate download 2018 is better than other video downloaders on the internet. Some of which are-
It is the only video downloader that allows downloads up to 4K resolution. Almost every vidmat video downloader allows its users to download videos up to 1080p, but VidMate 2018 not only allows you to download videos in 1080p but in 2K and 4K as well.
VidMate download 2018 supports a variety of formats like MPEG4/MP4, FLV, 3GPP, AVI, MP3, etc. and it even has an embedded audio/video converter that allows you to convert the downloaded videos on the go. So, no need for any external video or audio converters.
Another feature worth mentioning is its capability to extract audio from video and to save it as an MP3 or WMV file. Amazing, right?
The audio saved can either be 128kbps, 192kbps, 256kbps, and even 320kbps. So, it even offers Dolby-like quality.
The app is quite small in size, so it will not occupy much storage on your device.
How to install VidMate?
Once you have downloaded Vidmate online, you will have to install it on your device. To do that (installation steps are for Android 4.0.1 and above)-
