Editors' Review

+

Free YouTube Downloader grabs and saves videos from YouTube, one by one or in batches, and can also convert files to different formats and quality, so they'll play smoothly on your phone, tablet, or TV. It also saves YouTube videos as MP3, AAC, or Ogg Vorbis music files.

Pros

Automatic URLs: If you copy a YouTube video's URL, it automatically shows up in Free YouTube Downloader. Queued videos show download progress bars. Settings include optional sound and balloon notifications.

Easy and fast: We can't say whether or not focusing on one job makes Free YouTube Downloader faster than the others, but it made quick work of our queue.

Music: YouTube is a major source of freely shared music. While hardly quality, there's a lot of it, including stuff you won't hear anywhere else.

Help: Free YouTube Downloader's Help file describes the three easy steps to downloading videos, but more help and documentation (including a 30-second tutorial) is available at the software's website.

Cons

YouTube only: Free YouTube Downloader is tops at its job, but it's only compatible with YouTube -- not the many other video hosting sites.

Bottom Line

If you download videos from sites other than YouTube, you might prefer a multisite video download manager. But better performance and support keep Free YouTube Downloader at the forefront of YouTube download managers -- free or not.
