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.

"Too much malware/spyware"

April 08, 2015  |  By carolynsssss

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.334

Pros

Can't access the program, so I can't list any pros.

Cons

The downloading process deposited five separate malware/spyware products on my laptop and it took a while to get them all off.

Summary

I'm still hoping to find a good free YouTube downloader, one that works well, doesn't infect my computer, and allows a reasonable number of downloads per day. Someday I hope to find an honest company that doesn't engage in malicious practices.

"C/Net, you need to do a review of their latest upgrade"

April 04, 2015  |  By Grateful Child

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.0.334

Pros

Always worked great until they did something to force you to upgrade.

Cons

This latest software upgrade comes with significant infections that will make you wish you listened to Norton when you installed it. It took me hours of uninstalling and a system restore to get rid of it all the infections.

Summary

Freakin losers that get money to infect your computer.

"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.
