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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

"Not bad - fairly good, in fact"

May 19, 2015  |  By unhappy_carphone_user

Pros

Seems to download most YT videos (among others)

Cons

Some videos can't be downloaded - because they're blocked?

Summary

I stated the facts as they appear to be. You make up your own minds.

"Works great but hijacks browsers with annoying ads"

February 28, 2015

 |  Version: Freemake Video Downloader 3.7.1.5

Pros

Does what it's supposed to. YouTube videos turn out great when they're converted to the file you want.

Cons

Even when unchecking the popups option in the program, ads show up nonstop. It was a pain to remove the program and it's add-ons.

Summary

Great program, but it takes over your browser. It's not worth it.
