    "The perfect solution!"

    January 19, 2015  |  

    Version: Airy YouTube Downloader 1.2.1

    Pros

    ---Files are automatically named with the title of the video on the YouTube page being captured. Very nice!
    ---It works independently of your browser so you don't have to worry about browser version compatibility, or installing plugins.
    ---This application is the best of it's kind, allowing you to easily capture YouTube videos in any of their available resolution formats, or just the Mp3 audio on it's own. It's fast and so simple.

    Cons

    The only thing I'm hoping might be added in a future update is for the address of the YouTube page to be automatically entered into the comment field of the Mp3 file so that you can keep track of the source video more easily. A minor point, because I rarely need to do that.

    Summary

    Before Airy, it used to be such a hassle to capture the video of a guitar lesson that I wanted to have a copy of, or to record the audio for later. But with Airy, it's now so simple, especially since you don't have to capture things in real time. Just copy and paste the link, choose what data you want and "Download". Easy as pie.

    I wouldn't want to go back to the old way. Airy has saved me many hours over the months since I started using it.

    Pros

    - simple user interface that just works
    - you can download source video in any original format
    - very useful integration into browser
    - you don't need to think about how(!) to download video
    - outstanding support when YT changes algorithm...

    Cons

    nothing (someone can miss video convertor but I prefer to download content during a day and convert all the files during night using convertor tool)

    Summary

    I reported problem when YT changed algorithm for specific videoclip. In couple of hours Eltima released an update of Airy that fixed the issue. That was really amazing to get so fast support for this kind of software.
