    "Good product that does what it is supposed to do"

    July 19, 2012  |   By cooldude_47


    Works perfectly with youtube without any errors.
    Also good to have a converter in the program itself


    Being a freeware it is sponsored by a yahoo toolbar that installs in your browser but you can avoid installing it.


    Good software that is quick and simple to use and good set of features as well for free.
    So far i've used it only with Youtube and can say it works perfectly.
    Other sites should be okay too.
    Download speeds are pretty good not the best though.
    You can download videos at different qualities like normal or HD if available
    The Converter bundled is good too and great if you intend to watch the videos on a portable device like a phone,ipod Touch or tablet
    Can't blame them for bundling the toolbar in the installer as it helps the give the software free of cost.But be careful and read instructions if you do not want that toolbar taking over your browser and search.
