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 3.7.0.2

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Summary

    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!

    "This software is AWESOME!!"

    May 31, 2014   |   By whyswon

    I can't find anything to complain about.

    "I think it works great"

    May 28, 2014   |   By lachrymal

    Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.7.0

    Pros

    Works for me. I especially like the one button feature, and that it converts the download to whatever you choose. I'm happy with it.

    Cons

    It's not extremely fast, but I'm ok with that, as long as it works. It's not too slow either, probably just average speed.

    Summary

    You definitely want to read the entire description of it, here on cnet, before downloading. I say that because the extras they try to get you to take, were presented differently than on most of the things I've ever downloaded. If I hadn't previously read about how to avoid getting stuck with them, I would not have recognized where and how to avoid them. Plus, I would not have seen how to do the one button push feature, which is awesome to have.

    "SOMETIMES it actually works."

    May 23, 2014   |   By bulruq

    Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.7.0

    Pros

    It's free and works about half the time. It's better than it was 2 months ago. No real threat to paid downloaders like "Internet Download manager"

    Cons

    Buggy and unreliable on my Vista laptop. Sometimes stops working until the computer is rebooted. Other times it downloads a previously saved video again, instead of the one selected but re-labeling it with the title of the latter video.

    Summary

    A little better than nothing if you don't have the money to buy IDM.

    "Not bad at all."

    May 08, 2014   |   By lelboy

    Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.6.4.1

    Pros

    Will download most things that others say are "corrupt" and cannot be downloaded.Is easy to access downloaded files.
    Very easy to use generally. Is exceptional, considering it is free!

    Cons

    Only one comes to mind, and that it will not, on occasion, download the odd YouTube vid - even if it has downloaded the item previously

    Summary

    Minimal problems using a very worthwhile, free program. I'm a very happy user, and have recommended it to others.

    "Works flawlessly, every time! Love it!"

    May 06, 2014   |   By Donna77642

    Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.6.4.1

    Pros

    Extremely useful to download tutorials to save to slowly watch later. Ideal way to learn various hobbies. I cannot imagine why anyone would have problems with it. I have never encountered even one problem with it. It's simple. It's fast, just a couple of clicks (that's it!) and you are done! It's dependable. What's not to like? And did I say it's FREE!!!

    Cons

    I wish it was available without attached companion software, but will tolerate that in order to use this marvelous software.

    Summary

    Thank you, Freemake, for your A+++ software. It is awesome!

    "Requires .net Framework"

    April 14, 2014   |   By win_sun

    Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.6.4.1

    Pros

    Never used.

    Cons

    It's a web install. Not just 1.25 MB. Further requires .net Framework of 28 MB.

    Summary

    I hate apps which requires something else to install like Java, .net Framework, Flash etc. They are user-enemy.

    Updated on Apr 16, 2014

    IT WORKS THOUGH. 3.5 STARS. 1.5 Stars eliminated for eating 100MB RAM and flashing transparency.
