Vodman enables you to save videos from popular sites such as Youtube or Twitch to your device. 

Simply copy the URL of the VOD to the clipboard. Then, open Vodman and use the pull down menu to start the download. 

Decided you didn't want a VOD after all? No problem, cancel the download and optionally delete the file.

Vodman uses youtube-dl and can download from any supported site.

The sources are available on GitHub, translations on Transifex.
