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.

"Contains Viruses"

March 28, 2015  |  By gkrosner

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.334

Pros

Will download most videos, but ....

Cons

Norton flags out the developer's web site as "Malicious." When I first installed a few years ago, Norton gave it a pass.

Summary

Beware.

"Only offers 720p?"

March 20, 2015  |  By kuritan

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.334

Pros

It worked unlike YTD, and it seems very straight forward.
I was able to avoid any malware/bloatware by clicking custom install (cleverly faded to make it look like it is not an available choice) and unchecking everything. There are at least two windows in a row that you have to do this to.

Cons

When I went to download one of my own Youtube videos from youtube, this software only showed that 720p is the highest available, and I know for a fact that 1080 is available. Anyone know a solution to get 1080 as an option? Perhaps there is an easier way to download one of your own videos from Youtube?

Summary

Very straight forward. No problem avoiding extra software if you know what you are doing.
However, it doesn't seem to offer the ability to download in a higher quality than 720p.

"Gets the job done easily"

March 15, 2015  |  By kaw58

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.312

Pros

Simple program. Download video or audio in differing bit-rates. Quality of video download excellent and fast!

Cons

None I have experienced.

Summary

Very good and simple program. Defaults to the highest bit-rate, and names automatically from YouTube title. Opt out of any additional software during install. No junk or spyware here, and I see no ads. Refreshing to see a bare bones and uncluttered software.

"Wont install unless you let it install junkware"

March 12, 2015

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.312

Pros

It probably works. I'll never know.

Cons

It only installs if you agree to let it install "Safer Browser" junkware, which they make part of the EULA agreement that you must click on or the install fails.

Summary

NO WAY.
