Editors' Review


Freemake Video Downloader lets you download and convert video files from a wide variety of popular sites, including YouTube. Whether you download videos daily or only on occasion, this app will make the process straightforward.


Parental controls: Freemake Video Downloader gives you the ability to block downloads from adult video sites, hide adult videos, and not show thumbnails from adult videos. This is a feature we haven't encountered before in a downloader, and it's a nice touch that can give you peace of mind if you're using the software on a shared or family computer.

Simultaneous conversions: In addition to downloading, you can also convert videos to different formats through this software. Output options are labeled by device, so whether you want to play the video in question on your iPad, Android device, or PSP, you'll quickly see what to convert it to.


Hulu downloading: Descriptions of this app claim it can download videos from Hulu, but we were never able to do this successfully during testing, even after following all of the suggested troubleshooting options. If you're not interested in downloading from Hulu, this doesn't have to be a huge drawback, as every other site we tested worked well.

Bottom Line

Freemake Video Downloader is a convenient app to have around when you want to download and convert videos on your PC. It can handle quite a few simultaneous downloads, and it offers some nice extra features like the ability to put restrictions on adult videos.

it is working quite well sometimes., but it's too slow!


As I said previously, it is just too slow!!
Thus, I had to try the other applications, I really found that too many video downloader come with a buil-in browser. Well, I have to admit that it is convenient to preview videos sometimes. And I found a pretty cool video downloader which it is similar to this one, but much more fast than this one.
It is called vGuruSoft Video Downloader for Mac.


I said this app is cool not only because it is very fast, but also it supports to seclect resolution and get subtitles.

I like the software since it's user-friendly, stable and free. Freemake also supports many sites with videos.


I don't like ads during the installation. you should be always attentive.


Freemake is a cool thing that helps me convert youtube playlists to iPhone by pressing only one button.
