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.

"THIS MAY BE THE ONLY YOUTUBE DOWNLOADER THAT WORKS NOW!"

September 27, 2012  |  By RogerCary

 |  Version: Free YouTube Download 3.1.37.918

Pros

WORKED GREAT FOR DOWNLOADING FROM YOUTUBE WHICH NO OTHER PROGRAMS CAN DO RIGHT NOW DUE TO CHANGES WITH YOUTUBE SERVERS

Cons

INSTALLATION IN A PAIN IN THE @$$ DUE TO THE ATTEMPTS TO INSTALL ALL THEIR OTHER CRAPWARE

Summary

SINCE IT'S A FREE PROGRAM YOU CAN'T COMPLAIN TOO MUCH ABOUT THEIR ATTEMPTS TO INSTALL OTHER GARBAGE, JUST BE CAREFUL DURING INSTALLATION & YOU'LL BE FINE

"gets worse with every update"

September 20, 2012  |  By mko

 |  Version: Free YouTube Download 3.1.37.918

Pros

1...downloads multiple urls

Cons

1...every update adds more unwanted elements to browser
2...every available update automatically renders the current version useless
3...latest version of yt>mp3 getting too many errors

Summary

this product gets worse with every update. the latest version of yt>mp3 gets a "not available in your country" error. support says i have to install the full studio. this is an ongoing issue with dvdsoft in that they they are constantly trying to get you to accept more than what you want, or try to cleverly add extensions to your browser. i'm very careful with this but somehow they managed to add an extension to my chrome anyway

ultimately not worth the hassle unless you like downloading several urls at a time and do it constantly
