    "a good program became commercial"

    June 21, 2011  |   By brian1454


    -very simple and easy to use program
    -good converter


    -forced to install useless **** (toolbar, search)
    -quality depending of the video


    Youtube downloader gives you the option to download ANY youtube video very easily.
    It also gives you the option to convert the .flv files into a wide arrange of commonly used files (.wmv etc.).
    Sadly Youtube downloader became commercial, meaning you have to pay for important parts of the software to work (faster download, instant convertion).
    But the worst part is that it AUTOMATICALLY, withoud the possibility to prevent it, changes your default search engine and installs a toolbar.
    So 3 stars for the overal program and -2 stars for commercial ********

    Thank you for your review. The toolbar and default search should not install automatically, there is an option in the installer to decline this. If you have issues please email me at so I can look into it.
    Thank you, Biennesoft
