VideoGrabby - Easily Grab Internet Videos and Audio #edtech #edchat #ipaded

The other day I blogged about a great service at dirpy.com that allows you to quickly and easily grab a video or audio from the Internet for those times when you can't view a video on a blocked network or you know there might be sketchy Internet access and you need a video.  Another site I've used often is keepvid.com which just recently became available in Chrome, so now I only use one browser for everything!

Today on Twitter I read about another service that is drop-dead simple called VideoGrabby.  Simply paste the URL of the video you're looking for and press the Download Video or Download MP3 button and it does its thing and deposits the file wherever your downloads are saved.  Super simple and super quick.  The site says it can grab video and audio from YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud and more.

One cool feature they promote is that if you find a video on YouTube that you want to download you can simply type 'vg' in front of 'youtube' in the URL and press 'Enter'.  You will be automatically redirected to videograbby.com and the video you chose will be pre-slugged into the tool.
