Editors' Review


Free YouTube Download is an easy-to-use program that allows users to download YouTube videos and save them in a variety of formats. Although we've seen similar programs with more features, this program is a good choice for users who need a basic YouTube downloader.

The program's interface is somewhat sparse, but it's still pretty intuitive. Users simply go to YouTube, copy the URL of the video they want to download, and then paste it into Free YouTube Download. Users select the output folder and name, and then choose from among AVI, MP4, and FLV file formats, each of which is available in two different quality levels. Click the Download button and the program saves the video to the specified destination. The program is quite quick and easy to use, and is appropriate for users of all levels. We do wish that Free YouTube Download had a Help file, as there are some features, such as the proxy server options, that may not be familiar to everyone. But for basic downloads it works fine. Our only other complaint is that we've seen similar programs that allow users to download videos from a variety of Flash video sites, such as Hulu and Dailymotion, in addition to YouTube. Some users may wish to seek out programs with more versatility, but if a YouTube downloader is all you need, Free YouTube Download is a good choice.

Free YouTube Download installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

"Downloaded Malware!"

October 01, 2011  |  By asia856932

 |  Version: Free YouTube Download 3.0.16


None, it does not work, and downloads malware


If you do not have anti virus on you computer avoid. I downloaded and my anti virus found malware. I was thinking it might be a glitch or spyware. Then it made windows media player stop working. I ran my anti virus to remove it problem solved.


If you want Windows Media Player not to work and Malware, and no ability to download from you tube this program is right for you if not look again.
