Just discovered a killer app. I found an old Van Halen show that I went to when I was a kid at the Philadelphia Spectrum. RIP. The album is called Martial Law. I found the concert on YouTube. Then I was thinking how to listen natively thru a better sounding application.It is just audio. No Vid. Did a little research and found a couple apps which looked good to accomplish what I wanted. To my dismay they were all taken down from the Google Play store. I stumbled upon Tube mate. This thing is awesome. It will download the video and or convert the audio to mp3 if so desired. Perfect for portable audio. You can change the video formats as well.
I have noticed that there is a struggle between certain type apps and the Play store. TV Portal ,Best Tube, an occasional tether app has been known to get pulled and then replaced. Foxfi comes to mind.
Question is ..Is it legal to download a video from a public site like YouTube? Is watching a TV show on TV Portal against the law or is Google just playing it safe? If it is unsavory how do these apps make it to marketplace and why don't we hear more about the clarity of the laws. I understand that downloading /stealing the Metallica Discography from Piratehunt torrentland is illegal and unethical but is this in the same category?
