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.

Pros

not a bit... I can't think any

Cons

Antivirus detected a Trojan that could damage your computer. Contains Delta spyware toolbar. I am very disappointed.

Summary

Do not download. Use a clean solution e.g. ViideoZong . Seriously.

"This is to the owner... I have not downloaded yet"

Pros

Free........

Cons

Failure to respond to your client base...?

Summary

This software is 100% free to use and is guaranteed not to contain any spyware, viruses or any other kind of malware. Because we work full-time on this software we need to include sponsored offers. We hope you understand that this is necessary in order to provide this product free of charge. Any offers can easily be declined so nothing will ever be installed without your consent.

This is understandable. I would want to get paid as well... However, I have to question a team that spends the full time on a product and does not respond to complaints about the product. That in and of itself, screams badly of the product.
