Dirpy is an online video and music recorder which allows you to directly download videos from sites like YouTube and Vimeo. It’s free to use and does not require any registration.
The downloads start immediately to your computer.
I have loved Dirpy for a long time but the site has been a hit or miss in the past. It seems every time one of the major players like YouTube changed their site, Dirpy went down.
Upon a recent check of the site, I was happy to see Dirpy back in action.
As a video editor, I like to use the site if I need to capture parts of a clip or even music to use in my videos.
If you have any questions about the legality of downloading videos or music you have not created, I will let you make that determination for yourself.
YouTube has tons of creative commons videos which you can freely use in your own productions.
Dirpy also works now with SoundCloud which is a fantastic community of online music creators. SoundCloud offers thousands of music downloads through creative commons that are free for you to use in your productions.
You should give Dirpy a look and try it. Consider it a DVR for the internet.
