Editors' Review


MP4 Downloader makes it as easy as possible for you to download videos from YouTube and tons of other video sites right to your Windows computer. Through this program, you can easily save the videos in their original formats, or you can convert them to one of a long list of convenient formats, depending on how you want to use them in the future.


Fast processing: Both downloads and conversions are completed quickly through this program. Unlike many free apps that can only download files at one or two times the speed of playback, this one will have your video downloaded and converted in a fraction of the time it would take to play the entire video. And when it's all done, you can play the video directly from the app.

Conversion options: In addition to saving the downloaded video in its original format, you can also opt to convert it at the same time as you download it. Supported formats for conversion include WMV, AVI, MP4, 3GP, MP3, and more.

Adding videos: There are three different ways you can initiate a download through this program. The most basic, of course, is to copy and paste the URL for the video into the app's main interface. You can also drag and drop the selected URL, or you can use the Browser Integration feature, which is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This option places a button in the browser's toolbar that you can use to initiate a download with just one click, straight from the Web page.


Help omissions: There is a Help option that comes built in to this program, but it really only covers basic processes. It's not much help if you have trouble finding any of the features or getting them to work, and its descriptions are pretty short on details.

Bottom Line

MP4 Downloader is a good option for handling your downloads from various websites, especially if you want to convert the files as well. It offers plenty of options for just about every process it supports; and while the instructions could be more detailed, it's not too hard to find your way around the app on your own.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MP4 Downloader.

"Works perfect"

December 20, 2014  |  By jeribrackett

 |  Version: MP4 Downloader 3.8.17


Easy to use interface, video's download quickly, many formats to choose from, I tested on facebook and youtube before I purchased. Absolutely takes all the work out of it.. The thing that really sell's me is there are NO malware programs attached to the download. A great deal of quality for the price


I don't foresee any problems with MP4 Downloader

"This is absolutely a virus, do not download!!"

December 17, 2014  |  By CraigGrantRETI

 |  Version: MP4 Downloader 3.8.17


It did as described and converted Youtube videos cleanly, but the cons way outweigh the pros


Program did not install properly (it is not accessible in the uninstall panel or even using programs live revo uninstaller) making it impossible to remove, it tried to forcibly install itself as an extension into all of my browsers (the browsers flagged it as a malicious install), it disabled my anti-virus, it disabled the operating system's restore points and I started getting pop up messages indicating that my Windows license was not valid (which was obviously a phishing tactic as my Windows is valid). There is no way to remove this virus once its on your machine without the assistance of a professional so do not download it.


Bottom line is this is very sneaky and powerful virus that can seriously affect the performance of your machine. Do not touch, I am seriously regretting I did and that I trusted CNET and the prior reviews to do so.
