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.

"Not what it used to be!"

June 27, 2015  |  By bolx20

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.1.400

Pros

I ended up not using it (see the summary below, its quite long)

Cons

Installs malware (again see the summary below, its quite long)

Summary

Before I even say my piece about FYTD I suggest you look at the reviews, the editors review is from a year ago of a previous version! The user reviews are suspicious to say the least.

The majority of the user reviews, both positive and negative follow two distinct patterns going back quite a while and over many pages:

First the negative ones, they promote a piece of software called VIDDOZONK all of them using the same spelling which comes up by searching on Download.com as 'No results for "viddozonk"'. Google it and it comes up suggested as "videozonk", however searching directly for "viddozonk" led to a lot of links who's summaries suggest they follow the same pattern as here on download.com.

Next the positive reviews, the format in the earlier ones included Pro's, Con's and Summary's each of which only had positive things to say about FYTD (even in the Con's). In later reviews the summary was left out but the pattern of only positives remained as well as less words!

All in all I have to conclude both of the above are false reviews initiated by the marketing people of two separate companies.

Last, my experience with this download and it's not good:
The preview video seemed to show the same program I had used on another machine a long time ago with no problems. So I pressed download only for McAfee to indicate it was a dodgy download, now as I'm about to retire this machine soon I assumed it was a false positive and carried on and downloaded and installed FYTD. That's when the problems started, first I got new windows open advertising things I didn't want. Next on some sites it added a sidebar with search results albeit related to that site. At the top of the bar was the words that gave me a clue, Rocket Find.
Now a lot of people would automatically run various anti everything software but I did the equivalent of checking the fuse first and it worked. I ran Revo Uninstaller and found Rocket Find, so I used the advanced option and nuked it! After a restart of the system it was gone, but because of my disappointment with FYTD installing crap without permission I uninstalled that too.

If this is indeed a modern incarnation of a version I have used in the past then I can't recommend it and if its a different program the crapware makes it an avoid it.
