Social networks and video hosting sites are full of funny out-takes from shows as well as many other kinds of videos (animation, music videos, etc.) that capture our imagination and sense of humor. You can easily access them on the web, but what if you want to show some of these videos to your friends when you don’t have an Internet connection?
