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.

January 11, 2017  |  By EasierSoft

2017-01-11 21:27:34  |  By EasierSoft

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.1.524

Pros

Download the video from YouTube to your computer, and save it to a video file, so you can play it offline, or transfer to other video player devices, play the video file on the local computer is faster, and not the impact of network disruption. You can also burn the favorite video to DVD discs for permanently saved.

Cons

Not find now.

"An all in one video downloader and file converter:"

December 19, 2016  |  By kuruvanthody

2016-12-19 06:12:29  |  By kuruvanthody

 |  Version: Free YouTube Downloader 4.1.524

Pros

This is fantastic YouTube downloader software.

I see this more as a one stop shop for my video and conversion needs such as downloads from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and many other websites. The application description says it makes use of download acceleration in its software but I can see it really in action when I use.

Downloads work for all types of files irrespective of its resolution such as HD, UHD etc. It also supports use of different file types as well besides its good video and audio conversion features.

All in all, a MUST application for any user whether a normal or an advanced one.

5 starts indeed!

Cons

None that I could find

Summary

All in all, a great versitile download and converter product to have on all systems

Pros

I appreciate any free app, so I like this application.it is good to download youtube videos on my old windows pc.

Cons

However it seems that it only works on youtube videos and not always works well. Yes we cannot expect too much for these free stuff.

Summary

While there are a lot video downloaders offer free trial version. such as vGuruSoft Video Downloader for Mac, it works better than any videos downloader and supports more than 1000+ websties.
