Editors' Review

+

Free YouTube Downloader is a small but effective application that quickly downloads videos without any hiccups. While the design is quite plain, and there aren't many features, this application gives you exactly what you want when you want it.

Pros

Fast downloads: We used Free YouTube downloader to grab an array of videos and never once experienced any delays. All downloads, regardless of output format, preserved the quality of the original video.

Easy to use: This application is very straightforward, especially with its uncomplicated design. The large URL window and limited amount of buttons make downloading videos an easy task. It is all contained within one window, reducing confusion tremendously.

Helpful support: This app offers a helpful online guide, which includes photos and detailed descriptions, as well as an active forum where you can ask questions about Free YouTube Downloader.

Cons

Limited: This program performs its intended function perfectly, but it would be nice if it supported other video hosting Web sites.

Bottom Line

Free YouTube Downloader does exactly what it promises, offering an easy way to download videos. If you use YouTube for all your video needs, this is the perfect download. If you want a tool that will download videos from other sites, you may want to try out other options.

"It doesn't work recently..."

January 23, 2015  |  By KPriff1963

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.305

Pros

It used to download decently and convert to MP3

Cons

This product is starting to fail recently maybe because YouTube changed their formats again. I've switched to XetoWare's Free YouTube Downloader as they always update their app ASAP

"Downloads malware"

January 09, 2015

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.305

Pros

None. Not usable.

Cons

My virus scanner identified this download as a Trojan and, luckily, deleted it. Their "this software is... guaranteed not to contain any spyware, viruses or any other kind of malware" claim is tripe.

"More crappy spam-ware"

January 02, 2015  |  By Jibjub

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.305

Pros

Non I downloaded one video (which I can't find anyway) and it just used it as a vehicle to download other software

Cons

Even though I chose NOT to download all the additional software, it still did it and the software is there on your PC. TOTAL CON MERCHANTS. It's just like a dodgy salesman with his foot in your door, then when you think you shut him out and you come back into your house you find him sitting in the living room saying "I'll give you 15 Euro's off if you buy me"!!! How did you get in here??? You wouldn't let me in the door normally so I just piggy backed your first download ... So I just uninstalled the lot. More utter, utter internet crap.

Summary

Pile of rubbish.
