Any Video Converter (AVC) allows you to rip videos directly from YouTube, Facebook, VEVO, Vimeo, SoundCloud, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Metacafe, Howcast, Niconico and 100+ other sites (for personal use only of course) as well as from DVDs. It also has built-in video editing capabilities, you can use it to trim clips, add subtitles and more, making it handy for quick video clean up jobs.

VLC Media Player

VLC Media Player’s main talent isn’t video conversion – it’s a much loved open source media player that just happens to have a great built in MKV to MP4 video converter. You can import MKV files into VLC Media Player by loading them from your computer, or with a URL for files hosted online – handy if you don’t want to download large video files.
