    Downloads multiple videos and playlists at once.
    Automatically converts the videos as part of the downloading process.
    It's free.


    It takes like 5-10 minutes to download and convert one video.


    I have tried Youtube downloader & Converter and the problem with that is first you have to spend time getting the individual videos and playlists downloaded, then you have to spend forever getting each video converted one at a time and you have to pay like $60 to be able to select more than one file to convert at a time. I also tried Youtube downloader and the problem with that is I could only download one video at a time, excluding playlists, which is very time consuming.

    I just tried Free Youtube Download and it is so great. Not only does it download multiple videos and playlists at once, but it also automatically converts the videos. Not only that, but it is very easy to use, and it's free! It takes like 5-10 minutes for each video to download and convert, but I just leave my computer and let it keep working in the background until it's done.

    As for the toolbar comment that someone else left, this software does come with some added things to download, but if you just read each screen before clicking next, you will see that it gives you the option of downloading a toolbar and mayeb one other piece of software. Uncheck the boxes of what you don't want, and it won't download. It's a simple as that. So whoever complains about this program downloading unwanted additions is guilty of not reading what each page of the installation process says and just clicking the next button.
