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.


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.


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.

Reminds you to not download programs before reading reviews.


My Mac was saying that the program wanted access to things it shouldn't have access to.
Then you can't delete the program! What legitimate program does not let you delete it???????????????????


What an idiot I was for downloading and ALMOST installing it

There are no pros for spyware / malware programs like this.


Malware, spyware, spamware, OpenCandy trojan.


Seven major antivirus scanners identified the program as a potentially unsafe program (OpenCandy trojan).
These programs include AVG, ESET, McAfee, VIPRE, ..., etc.
