Editors' review

While YouTube hosts an endless amount of content, it requires an active Internet connection for streaming. Free YouTube Converter for Mac converts YouTube formatted videos to more-common types, but ultimately doesn't complete the necessary steps.

Available as freeware, Free YouTube Converter for Mac downloads and installs seamlessly with its own native installer. Upon startup, the program takes the user to the developer's Web site, where other programs are sold. While a slight nuisance, this is acceptable for a freeware program. The program's design is well thought out, with large, easy-to-recognize buttons for the main functions of locating files, converting them, and choosing the output folder location.

Support is lacking and the program doesn't have a button or option to pull videos directly from the Internet. In short, you must already have the video downloaded to your computer for converting. If there was the ability to pull from the Internet, it was not apparent, and there were no instructions stating otherwise. FLV videos do convert easily into other formats. Had it been labeled as an FLV video converter only and not a YouTube converting program, this would have been preferred, since it performs that function well.

Despite its well-designed interface and file-converting ability, Free YouTube Converter for Mac lacks the ability to pull videos directly from the Internet, a critical step for its stated purpose.
