    "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:

    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.

    vGuruSoft Video Downloader for Mac :

    "Your going to get a Trojan with this download"

    October 21, 2016  |   By ATOZ2882

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    Never had to go any further

    Cons

    The product may be decent but there is a red flag right off the bat

    Summary

    Cnet needs to monitor the software that is offered on its site. This should never be an issue. There are 2 issues here in my opinion. First the company that should know such issues exist and this site needs to monitor itself better.

    Pros

    Zero for the moment. None at all.

    Cons

    You will get a bunch of related malware. Contains Delta spyware toolbar. Google for another downloader...

    I prefer to pay a few bucks and have peace of mind. Use a clean solution e.g. VideZonnk . Trust me.

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

    Pros

    Actually I have version 5.7.2, which i probably downloaded from author's website. It didn't install any toolbar. Although, that kind of offers can always change with time. User interface is very simple to use. I like it.

    Cons

    There are some fake negative reviews in this site.
