    "Big Trojan Drag"

    April 8, 2017  |   By Weparicua

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    It does the job but...

    Cons

    According to Boost which I downloaded here, http://download.cnet.com/Boost/3000-18512_4-75794586.html, It adds itself to the StartUp, dragging the system. Boost identifies the program by name and company. It uses "PC resources even when the system is idle." I don't want it even if it does the work it's intended to perform. Boost rated my system resources at 34%. After unistalling YTD Video Downloader, it rated it at 64%. That's a HUGE difference!

    "Avast! detected two viruses immediately after install."

    April 5, 2017  |   By gospelmidi

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    Don't need it... don't want it... I'm outta here.

    Cons

    One (or both) of the viruses is
    http www.malwareprotectionlive dot com/content/installer.exe

    Even if it were benign (which Avast! says it is NOT), I don't want a video downloader installer downloading and running unrequested software, malware or not.

    Summary

    Download.CNET should have caught this, especially since this is one of the top ten downloads for Windows.

    "Not free ..."

    February 19, 2017  |   By ninja660

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    Good idea/good concept

    Cons

    Cost is not free.

    Summary

    Right on the App page, it says get the full version for $29.90 - is this adware/bloatware? Not going to keep it on my system. Come on CNET get your reviews right. Move this out of freeware.

    "Does what it says it does, but also takes over browsers"

    December 9, 2016  |   By m4ch4x0r

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    It downloads videos from YouTube without a problem, but it does take it's dear sweet time to do so because it's the "free" version.

    Cons

    Without asking a question, it installs extensions into Safari and Chrome, changes your home page in both browsers, changes your search engine to Yahoo (I mean, who actually uses Yahoo anymore?), and it steals your DNA code by taking a hair sample.

    Okay, the last one was an exaggeration, but you get my point.

    Summary

    So the software is simple enough to use. You tell it what to download by URL, and it does so.

    It's slow though. On my 300 mbps down connection (that's 37.5 megabytes per second for those that are counting), it could only muster a download rate of 1.2 megabytes per second. Of course, I would expect this with software meant to make you want to buy the full version, so -1 star for that.

    Also, this program takes over your browsers with extensions for Chrome and Safari, and changes your search engine and home page to Yahoo WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. If I could take away all the stars for that and replace them with black holes, I would.

    "One of the best"

    November 28, 2016  |   By Voorhees5

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    Said it supports hundreds of websites and I've tried many of them. Very easy to use and always work successfully.

    Cons

    Does include tool. Decline it.
    It can be a great partner with All2MP4 for Windows, freeware to convert YouTube video and other video downloaded to MP4 and the format you want. It can also download video.
    Free Download:
    http://www.tresrrr.com/all2mp4forwindows.html

    Summary

    All2MP4 for Windows can work as a great partner to this YouTube downloader.

    "Great program, Decline malware"

    November 10, 2016  |   By maripooh13

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    It gets the job done, it downloads your youtube videos and you cna even convert them into mp3 files so I'm satisfied

    Cons

    There are some malware in the installation program, however you can DECLINE their installation. Read carefully when you install YTD and check what you accept to install, decline the OpenSearch thing and the Malware protection program and you'll be fine.
