Editors' review

Freemake Video Downloader is a great free option for downloading videos from the Web and converting them to file types you can use on your favorite devices. The smooth and simple interface couldn't be more intuitive; simply find the video you want to download on the Web, copy the link, then hit the Paste Link button in Freemake Video Downloader to begin downloading. Depending on the original video quality, you'll get options to download the video in different popular formats and various file sizes to fit your needs.

Along with its seamless Web video downloading functions, Freemake Video Downloader offers features that make it easier to use than other programs in the genre. Simple extras, like the ability to play the video straight out of the interface or open the containing folder so you can manage and move files quickly, are time-saving features. It's also important to note that you will need to have Microsoft's .NET Framework 4.0 installed to use this program.

Overall, Freemake Video Downloader is a painless way to download online video. Anyone who wants to keep online videos local or wants to convert video for different devices should check out this software.

    "Best Free Video Downloader Available"

    July 06, 2014   |   By rudinski852

    Version: Freemake Video Downloader


    Easy Interface
    No Brainer to use
    Very, Very Effective
    Great Captures and Saves
    Good Options on Saved Formats


    A bit slow in 32 bit machines
    A more extensive 'HELP' needed


    Overall a great little program from the good folks over at Freemake. Well written and coded, didn't encounter any 'bugs' or funny activity while doing several dozen video captures. I mentioned a bit slow on 32 bit machines, but I can attribute this to the age and need for defragging of these two pc's. Overall, great performance for a free program, and like the other programs Freemake has available, great programs from some even greater programmers! Keep up the good work Freemake! You have at least one convinced and happy user in Southern California..... me!
