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.

"It's the ONLY YouTube Downloader that actually works!"

September 16, 2012  |  By Vicky8609

 |  Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.1

Pros

2 days ago all my previous downloaders like aTube Catcher, keepvid.com, zamzar, download helper stopped working. I have no idea why, but I constantly received 404 message from them.

Friends on Facebook recommeneded me Freemake Video Downloader because actually Freemake is the only YouTube Downloader (or YouTube Converter, what ever you call it) that works!

I saw user reviews at Cnet that Freemake has virus or adware. Nothing at all. There are 2 banner ads upon installtion that you can reject with one click. So You must be 100% idiot if you think it's a kind of adware.
Ok, let's go on.

I've also checked the installation exe with 2 antivirus programs. They show that Freemake Video Downloader is absolutely safe and secure to install. There are NO trojans, or other bad stuff that steals your personal data and passwords.

Besides, it works fine. Freemake Video Downloader converts YouTube to mp3, saves video in mp3, avi, mp4, webm, flv and other formats.

I love it! It's safe and useful!

Cons

none, it's ideal youtube downloader for all Windows 7, XP & Vista users

Summary

1. I recommend Freemake Video Downloader simply because it does its job as promised.

2. It's safe to install. I have no malware alerts.

3. Freemake Video Downloader has no bugs and error messages.

4. It has offline installer. Go to their Downloads page and scroll to the bottom, there you'll see links to offline installer. (I don't like online installers).

5. Now Freemake Video Downloader is the only youtube converter that can grab youtube videos and bring to computer!

6. It has many video saving and conversion options. So you don't need extra software for video conversion!

7. It's kind simple and good-looking.

8. It's fast. Yeah, really fast. Also I can set download speed restriction, when I don't want to waste all my Internet traffic for downloading.

9. Freemake Video Downloader works fine on both my computers XP Service pack 2 and Windows 7 Home Premium.

10. It also can download videos from other video sites like Vimeo and anime sharing sites.

JUST LOVE IT! FREEMAKE IS THE BEST!

"Hidden Downloads ? Trojan ?"

September 14, 2012  |  By quad_bike

 |  Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.1

Pros

Great Downloader

Cons

I installed this own my PC and started downloading a Youtube Video, it downloads well below my bandwidth speed but Bandwidth monitor says I am using all my available bandwidth. Worse still even if you pause the download or shut the damn thing down the monitor will still show that I am suing my full allocated bandwidth. For that reason alone I uninstalled this. I like my programmes doing what they are supposed to do without sneaking behind my back.
