I have previously covered a method to download youtube videos, but there are times when you want to download specific segments of a YouTube video. For example, you might want to download only a certain part of the Presidential Debate and not the whole circus.
Meet Clip Converter.
Clip Converter is a free online media conversion application, which allows you to record, convert and download nearly any audio or video URL to common formats.
Simply enter the URL for the video you want to download, and the web application will try to detect the video file and grab it to their server. It is then converted to the chosen format and then after completing the conversion you can download the media file. You can customize audio settings, video quality etc.
The best feature of the service is the option to select which portion of video to convert and download. In the example above, I entered from “00:10:00” to “00:20:00”. Clip Converter will now convert only the portion from 10 minutes up to 20 minutes of the video.
Currently supported services include Direct Download (HTTP), YouTube (HQ and HD), Sevenload, Dailymotion (HQ), Vimeo (HQ), Metacafe, MyVideo, Veoh, SoundCloud and many more.
