Editors' Review

+

The Fastest Free YouTube Downloader is an application for downloading and converting videos from YouTube into a number of formats to be viewed on your PC, Mac, or other supported devices.

The greatest feature is the list of format options. You can download and convert a video for a specific device, so you can view your videos on your iPhone, Android, and other devices. All you have to do is insert the YouTube URL, click Find, then choose which format you want to convert the video to. The wait varies from one video to another, and it largely depends on which format you choose as well. The longest we had to wait was for a 15-minute video we wanted to download and convert to the Apple iPod Touch format at the highest quality. It took nearly 2 hours for that, which was a downside. There didn't seem to be a Help file, but there's information on the application you can toggle over and it's just as good. The Boost Volume By settings information is particularly helpful since it helps you make sure the sound quality is good.

The download process went without a hitch. It took a little longer than some software applications we've downloaded before, but it was only about a minute slower. It was simple enough and we didn't have to read through much to set up everything. We haven't seen that many video downloaders out there like this. Overall it's a decent installation.

"Stay away from this guys!"

August 18, 2014  |  By dmirceatim

 |  Version: Fastest YouTube Downloader 5.0

Pros

It used to work but the last version, 5.0 doesn't and I bought the professional one!

Cons

I sent three email to their support, the only way to contact them and no answer!
After it find the video (when it find it, sometimes no! ) it stays in "Connecting" status and does nothing!
I asked my money back and of course , nothing!

Summary

I can not give it zero, mainly for their support!

"Worry free software"

July 02, 2014  |  By rkbottomfrank

 |  Version: Fastest YouTube Downloader 5.0

Pros

I liked the free version so I thought I'd take a risk and spend $20 on the "gold" version. Boy was I surprised. The download speeds really are that much faster. I can easily download a dozen mp3s in about a minute. The interface is effective and not confusing in the least. thumbs up

Cons

Wish the super high download speeds applied to the free version but I guess everybody has a right to earn their money

Summary

not disappointed at all

"small and easy to use"

June 30, 2014  |  By lightsbliss

 |  Version: Fastest YouTube Downloader 5.0

Pros

I was surprised by how small the program actually is. It's a small screen with just a few buttons but it gets the job done. Downloads happened in a few seconds as advertised. I've tried a few converters and many of them have a download limit or are impossible to remove after they've been installed. This isn't like that.

Cons

Sometimes had to click the download button twice. Also automatically sends the file to desktop but that might not bother a lot of people.

Summary

happy with it

"daughter loves it"

June 30, 2014  |  By shylatrumpet

 |  Version: Fastest YouTube Downloader 5.0

Pros

She's 8 and uses this for downloading beiber vids from youtube. I'm trying to teach her how to edit videos (I know 8 is young but why not right?) but I need to show her how to get them from youtube first so this is really good for that.

Cons

Would be nice to see some video editing capabilities

Summary

not regretting it yet

"Free is good. Gold version is better"

June 30, 2014  |  By Jakecipher

 |  Version: Fastest YouTube Downloader 5.0

Pros

The free version works as advertised. Though with the volume of videos/songs I download from youtube, it was worth it to buy the gold version as it downloads songs in a few seconds

Cons

The aesthetic could be prettier but the functionality is good

Summary

Very quickly downloads and converts to any file
