Editors' Review


If you'd like to download and save videos from YouTube but don't care for some of the more versatile (read: "complex") video tools out there, 1-Click YouTube Downloader might be what you're looking for. As the name suggests, it can download videos with a single click, more or less; certainly with less effort than any similar tool we've tried. While it's a bit thin on options, that's in keeping with its keep-it-simple mission statement; nevertheless, it does cover the basics. Naturally, 1-Click YouTube Downloader is freeware: After all, YouTube is free, too!

This simple app's Web-style dialog features a large YouTube logo that you can drag and drop YouTube URLs into to start downloading them immediately, as well as an entry field for searching YouTube. We typed in a favorite title and pressed YouTube Search/Download. Our results appeared in an HTML search window (complete with Web ads that aren't any more intrusive than what you'd see on any search engine). We simply had to drag the hyperlink into the logo drop box to start downloading our video, or we could click it to open its YouTube page in IE. Our video downloaded quickly (your bandwidth will have the biggest effect on download speeds) and 1-Click YouTube Downloader opened a dialog with three choices when it finished: Open the destination folder, save the video with a name and destination of our choice, or close the dialog to download more videos. Our downloaded video played perfectly in our usual media player. We found that we couldn't download a video if its YouTube page was also open in IE, but closing the browser cleared things up.

As noted, 1-Click YouTube Downloader displays ad links and banners on its search page, but it's not an annoyance. But the program also asks for your email address to keep you up to date about changes to YouTube's pages. That's up to you, of course, but we see no reason to give out our email address for that reason when we'd almost certainly be using the program's search tool or pasting or dragging and dropping a YouTube address directly.

"Can't download it"

Don't know. Every time I try to download it my anti-virus program kicks in and stops the download.

In this day and age it's crazy to take a chance. As long as my virus program says "no" I'm not downloading it.

"Great product!"

Can easily copy multiple YouTube URLs for downloading, and conversion to mp3 and other formats.


When I copy a YouTube URL it appears twice in this application.
