    Savefromnet says they no longer service the USA. SO that goes for Documents by Readdle. Shame. Just had to restore my IPad and lost all of the wonderful videos I had downloaded before Readdle quit the USA. Bloody shame.

    There is no much space on my phone. I usually use Allavsoft to download any videos or music files to my computer. It has both Mac and Windows version.

      The short answer is no. I have tried Vimeo and is working (360p). Feel free to follow the same steps regardless of the platform.
