How to Rip Videos from any Website on the Internet?

Wondering how to rip videos on the Internet? Well, we have got your back. To be honest, there is nothing special about the tools available to rip videos online, it is just the ease of use and how it performs (without stuttering or lag).

But, what kind of tool do you need to capture online videos? You will only need a screen recorder. Yes, any screen recorder will do. There’s a lot of them – but we are looking for something that makes it very easy to capture videos online.

So, in this article, we will take a look at the potential screen recorders that you can utilize and what’s our favorite pick among them (and why).

Screen Recorders Available to Rip Videos

You can find a lot of screen recorders but not all of them gets the job done. So, we’ll save your time trying out all the alternatives and mention the popular ones that usually does the trick:

  • Movavi Screen Recorder
  • ShareX
  • Bandicam

Among the above-mentioned tools, I personally prefer ShareX and Movavi’s Screen Recorder.

ShareX is not a standalone screen recorder – so it may not be much use to everyone out there, but if you happen to use “Steam” client – on which it is available for free, you will like it.

It lets you take screenshots, upload them to the cloud, and also captures your screen – to rip videos from the website.

The later preference (Movavi) gets the edge for being a standalone screen recorder with no other fancy features and it offers a very easy-to-use UI. In the end, you should be the one to decide.

Best Screen Recorder: Easy to use

As per your preference, you might find a different tool suitable – but if you want our word on one of the best out there, we’ll go with Movavi’s tool.

However, it comes with a 7-day trial restriction – so you will have to purchase the full version, which is available for just 999 INR.

If you do not prefer paid tools, that’s another story to go with – where the obvious choice would be ShareX, but you will not regret purchasing the former.

You won’t even need a guide to using these tools, but just for the sake of reference, we will let you know about how it works:

1. Using Movavi Screen Recorder (Recommended)

You need to first download the screen recorder from their official webpage and get it installed. You can adjust the resolution as per your requirements and then set the capture area.

For additional options, you can tweak the settings for an effect or disable the system audio or enable the microphone – as you would like.

Do note that the trial version comes with certain restrictions – you get a 120 second of recording limit and the video shall include a watermark. So, if you want to get rid of it, you should upgrade it and get the full version.

Other features include the ability to schedule screen recording – by which you can rip a video streaming, gameplay, and similar stuff. If needed, you can even utilize your webcam to record a video for YouTube. It is very easy.

2. Using ShareX (Great Alternative)
