Man Eating Spider !?

I once saw a video on the Internet about a huge spider capable of eating a person. I think in the video the spider eats a small animal. How is that type of spider called?
Can a spider eat a person?

There are some really big spiders out there but I don't think there's one big enough to eat a human.

For example, the camel spider is huge. The camel spider stories began to spread during the 1990-91 Gulf War. Now, with the continued presence of U.S. forces in the Middle East, the stories are becoming legendary.

Most camel spiders inhabit warm and arid habitats, including virtually all deserts in both the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, excluding Australia. Some species have been known to live in grassland or forest habitats.

Here's a video:

I think a possible man eating spider is the camel spider.

Camel spiders, also known as wind spiders, wind scorpions, and sun scorpions, are a type of arthropod found (among other places) in the deserts of the Middle East. They're technically not spiders but solifugae (although, like spiders, they belong to the class Arachnida). Camel spiders are the subject of a variety of legendary claims, many of them familiar to Americans because they were spread by U.S. servicemen who served in the Persian Gulf War in 1991, and re-spread at the beginning of the Iraq War in 2003

OMG I Hate them
um well personally I hate spiders...and I hope i never get to see a giant spider ever in my life for I will probably die before it even kills me and eats me alive. Yeah probably a heart attack or something of the sort. Arachnids not really my thing...I would get rid of them all if I could. Of course I realize that they are also good for the world...but really? they are disgusting and scary looking...

I have seen videos on youtube about those. They can rip a small animal in half!
Any way they are not big enough to eat people.
Plus if there was a spider bigger than us it would move slow due to the over sized exoskeleton.
