Editors' Review

+

VDownloader downloads videos with a single click and saves them in the best format and quality (including HD) for watching on your PC, TV, or mobile devices. It can download batches, import and export files, check for RSS updates, and more.

Pros

Many sites: VDownloader is compatible with Dailymotion, Vimeo, Yahoo, Break, Facebook, and other major video hosting sites.

Perform Test: When you click Perform Test on the Help menu, VDownloader attempts to download files from all supported sites in order to save you time.

Saved credentials: VDownloader can save and enter YouTube and Facebook credentials automatically so you can download age-restricted content without having to authorize access manually.

Cons

Menus: The expanding menus for selecting output format, quality, and more are a bit awkward to navigate. Smaller entries would improve readability without compromising legibility.

Not all sites: Some popular sites, such as Internet Archive, aren't supported.

Pro tools: Scheduler and Output Format aren't available with the free edition, yet they are listed in the freeware section.

Bottom Line

Ad-free VDownloader's ability to save videos from sites other than YouTube makes it a contender in a crowded field.

"Does What it says with limitations"

July 05, 2015  |  By Oblio42

 |  Version: VDownloader 4.0.1001

Pros

-Really fast downloads: A 11 hour (!) Audio book only took about 8 mins
-Intuitive
-Lots of options (caveat: see cons)
-downloads from lots of sites, not just YouTube.

Cons

It does convert to what ever finished file you want but unless you say 'NO CONVERSION" it will do it automatically after the download is complete. The problem is that the conversion is SLOW, SLOW, SLOW!! It is actually slower to convert than the download! I estimate as much as 4 or 5 times the length of the download!! I put it on "NO CONVERSION" and use "FileFactory" to do the conversion which is much faster.
For a "Free" program it has a lot of disabled options, which makes this actually CRIPPLEWARE. If it such they shouldn't put it in the "FREE" section!
Even with the disabled options it does work ok for simple downloads.
It takes a long time to load and it is a resource HOG and can bog your system down .

Summary

Super fast downloader but it has it's problems, like being slow over all and a pig on memory etc. As much as they might say it's FREE, it really is CRIPPLEWARE, since they decided to disable a lot of features.
When using it for simple downloading it is great, and right now blows the doors off of Youtube DL and all the rest, but with some limitations.
