Editors' Review

+

YTD Video Downloader downloads YouTube videos onto your hard drive. This is a very useful feature if you ever want to view a video offline or convert it into a format that can be stored on a mobile device.

Pros

Quick conversions: In our tests, YTD Video Downloader's free version took no time to convert our videos.

Mobile format conversion: If you want to take your files with you after you've downloaded them, this program also converts files to a variety of formats that work well with mobile devices, such as iPads.

Intuitive interface: The YTD Video Downloader interface is very easy to navigate.

Cons

Overselling: The app is riddled with ads and buttons that sing the praises of the paid version. This is slightly annoying, especially considering the free version works so well that it's unlikely many people would want to upgrade.

Bottom Line

If you want to store your favorite YouTube videos for offline viewing, YTD Video Downloader is an excellent choice. Even if you're new to this type of activity, you should have no problem understanding how to use this app.

"Malware - stay away !"

November 05, 2014  |  By bdaneau

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.6

Pros

Product used to work perfectly

Cons

It installs Spygot malware even if you choose a manual install. Following install, I completely lost my Exchange connection. It ended up corrupting certs on my machine and even after removing the malware, my laptop was still screwy. Basically had to reimagine my machine to recover from this download. Be forewarned ...

Complete CR*P

"Spookyware"

November 02, 2014  |  By hotbrown

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.6

Pros

It downloaded that one youtube video just fine.

Cons

It installed a local proxy server and screwed with some of my networking and VPN settings. Luckily I remembered that sense of "dice rolling" about downloading this thing in the first place. After uninstalling it and rebooting, the proxy server settings were still there, so I had to clean that up manually. I wonder if I'm done cleaning up after this thing yet.

Summary

Seems like this is great software to install on a VM that has all of your spookyware and nothing important.

"malware warning"

November 01, 2014  |  By dan38g

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.6

Pros

non to claim. only cons.

Cons

After downloading YTD from this site, my browsers stopped working. Had to reinstall the entire system. Probably came with malware or some other virus. After that I downloaded and installed directly from http://www.ytddownloader.com. Did not have any issues so far.

"Works well but also installs dodgy adware"

October 26, 2014  |  By Soccer789

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.6

Pros

Good fast downloader, easy to use.

Cons

Found it installed the very shifty adware RocketTab, which among other things, is impossible to remove without extra software, and screwed with my computer's proxy settings.
