CNET Editors' review
Free YouTube Video Downloader is a quick video downloader that is loaded with options and format support. It comes in a nifty, light package to save room for all the videos you can download with it. Though it could use a better layout, it's still one of the best ways to get YouTube videos on your computer.
Unlike other YouTube downloaders, Free YouTube Video Downloader doesn't support videos from other sources like Vimeo. It only allows you to download URLs that start with YouTube.com. The program checks in at less than 1MB, so it won't weigh down your hard drive. As far as layout is concerned, the program is just a thin bar you can insert a URL into combined with a gigantic ad for another one of the developer's programs. It could have saved some space by losing the ad (or at least making it smaller.) Downloading your video with this program is easy; all you have to do is insert the URL and click "OK." The program lets you choose between downloading video or audio only, specify where you want to save each file as you're downloading it, and even choose what format you want to use; it supports more than a dozen, including popular ones like MP4 and AVI. During testing, it took the program less than three minutes to grab a seven-minute video.
Though it could support more Web sites, it does an excellent job of giving you videos from the site you'd use most often anyway. Since it downloads videos quickly and isn't a drain on your hard drive, Free YouTube Video Downloader stacks up well against its competitors.

Version: Free YouTube Video Downloader 6.0
This program worked great. I can either download the entire video from YouTube or download the audio in mp3 format. I did not experience any malware problems like the previous user commented. I recommend this program to those you don't have much experience with downloading from YouTube

Version: Free YouTube Video Downloader 6.0
you can download and save video or audio only. audio saves in mp3 format. very easy to use.
audio (mp3) records at a 64 bit rate only, it cannot be adjusted. also, on install your computer will be infected with malware, after you waste hours trying to get rid of it you'll wish you had gone with something else
