Editors' Review


Clip Extractor Pro helps you download videos from YouTube and other sites to store on your computer and play offline if you choose. With a streamlined interface and quick downloading speeds, this program will have videos at your fingertips in seconds.


Clear tutorial: When you first open the app, you have the option to watch a quick tutorial video that describes how to install and access Clip Extractor Pro. The video is clear and the process is fast, so you can start using the app right away.

Speedy: Downloads happen quickly through this app, and you can start playing them immediately through Windows Media Player, or whatever you choose as your default media player. The video quality is good, and you can save videos in multiple formats, including MP3, MP4, 3GP, MOV, and more.


Browser integration fail: While pasting links into the main interface of the app worked fine for accessing files to download, the browser integration that should allow you to download straight from a Web page did not. This means that the app is still useful for downloading, but it's definitely not as convenient as other downloading apps that give you the direct download option.

Bottom Line

Clip Extractor Pro is a quality program for the most part, and the ability to extract ringtones is a big plus. But the missing browser integration is a significant drawback. It's free to try for use on three downloads, after which you'll have to pay $19.95 to keep using it.

This review is for Clip Extractor Pro version 4.9

I downloaded several regular and VEVO videos from YouTube and they came out perfect.

When you check the "Download HQ/HD version" box, it opens another window to allow you to choose the highest quality & largest screen size available. There are also several other options in that same window to download lower quality and smaller screen sizes if you choose to.

These HQ/HD choices override any choices you make in the "Choose screen size and quality" options on the main menu, so you get the largest video size with the highest quality.

Remember, the quality of the video you download will only be as good as the quality of the video that was uploaded to YouTube. HQ/HD (High Quality/High Definition) videos will look better than lower quality videos.


No cons really, you can only download 1 video at a time. You cannot have any other videos in cue waiting to be downloaded.

There may be a way to have other videos waiting in cue but I haven't found it yet. I just purchased the program earlier today and I am still learning :-)


*IMPORTANT* - after installing Clip Extractor Pro, restart your computer before running the program or it will crash.

I just purchased Clip Extractor Pro earlier today and have been using it all afternoon, I haven't encountered any problems at all.

It can take a little while when downloading high quality videos with large screen sizes, but that's only because the file size is larger for the higher quality videos. It will download quicker on a fast internet connection.

I have a slow internet connection and it took about 30 minutes to download an 8 minute video. I live in a small town and only have a 3 meg cable internet connection, and download speeds are not always consistent :-(

Converting the video to whatever format you choose will take some time too. I'm not sure if Clip Extractor Pro converts the video while it is downloading, or if it converts the file after it has downloaded.

The conversion process works perfectly. All the high definition (720p and 1080p) videos I downloaded looked like DVD quality videos.

Even the lower quality videos I downloaded looked quite good. But the video will only look as good as the original video posted on YouTube.

I got so tired of "freebie" downloaders and all their advertisements, limited choices, limited features, and all their "bloatware" (toolbars, etc).

This is the best video downloader program I have ever used. Purchasing Clip Extractor Pro was the best investment I have made, and the price was great! I got it half price today here on C/NET

This program is really easy to use, all of the choices on the main menu are simple and are laid out very well. There is also a tutorial link on the bottom left of the main window of the program if you need it.

I am using Windows 7 32 bit and convert all my videos to MP4. I have not tried other video formats. The MP4 format plays perfectly on my computer, my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 cell phone and my Archos video player.

Corrections and update - Clip Extractor Pro downloads the YouTube video to your hard drive first, then converts it to the format you selected.

Clip Extractor Pro will download VEVO videos if they are already posted to YouTube and downloaded from YouTube only.

Clip Extractor Pro will not download videos directly from the VEVO website as it is not one of the supported websites.

Here is a list of supported websites for Clip Extractor Pro. This list comes directly from their website:
