It pretends to be a video player... but saves the videofile instead of playing it.
It is supposed to appear when your device asks you to choose a video player. If you choose "Video downloader", the device will download a video file. You can access downloaded files using the "Downloads" application.
Video Downloader appears for http video links only.
When you CAN NOT use video downloader:
* YouTube, Vimeo;
* HTML5 embedded videos;
* any case when android doesn''t ask you to choose a video player.
When you CAN use video downloader:
If android asks you to choose a video player when you''re opening a video from web.
There is no launch icon for this application. It lauches when you click a video file in web.
Some devices turn off Wi-Fi when they go into sleep mode. The download fails.
Please make sure Wi-Fi sleep policy is set to "Never" to prevent this.

If android doesn''t ask for a video player, you might need to clear video player defaults.
If you''ve cleared defaults and it still doesn''t ask to select a player... then this application doesn''t suit you.
If it asks to select a player but Video Downloader is mising in the list, that might be a bug - it this case, please email me.
If your device can''t play a downloaded video file, MX Player with a software decoder might help.
