    "Does what it should do!"

    August 18, 2014  |   By khoaker

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.2

    Pros

    Easy to use.
    Free.
    Does exactly what it should do

    Cons

    Does not use your full download rate as allowed by your ISP. However this may be because of Google's servers and not the application itself.

    Summary

    Ugh, it's a shame this software is getting low reviews from people who barely understand how to use a computer. People are claiming their browser and search engine are being "hijacked" by this software.
    If you pay attention during the install, there is a check box that allows you to do a "custom" install and turn off any additional changes other than installing this software. It really isn't that hard to see; just don't be foolish enough to click "next, next, next" blindly.

    "Proceed with caution"

    August 8, 2014  |   By Tymaxx

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.2

    Pros

    Might work really well, never got to that point.

    Cons

    I can not say what people are thinking that gave this a positive review. It changed my search engine, it made changes to be home page and I started getting pop-ups from some site trying to convince me that my media player needed to be upgraded...even though the website had nothing to do with my media player.

    Summary

    If you choose to use this product, make sure to make a restoration point, and back up any important files as well as set your browser options that the search engine can't be changed..
    i will never use a product that installs items I don't specifically ask for, i don't care how good it works, there are other products out there that work as well and don't install spam.

    "Sneaky - changes all your browser settings!"

    July 30, 2014  |   By SabLoe

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.2

    Pros

    Not tested yet, too disappointed about the trouble I got for installing it.

    Cons

    Very disappointed that there was no warning that the installation of this app pushes yahoo as default search engine in all your browsers plus the add-ons for ebay and amazon. Consider this as very sneaky!!

    "Dependable freeware"

    July 29, 2014  |   By Shashikanta Behera

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.8.2

    Pros

    There is no doubt it works well in my system with windows xp. That is why I have never detached this valuable downloader( YTD V. D.) from my computer. In the meantime I have downloaded a lot of videos mainly from You Tube.

    Cons

    Yet it is not satisfactory. The problem of resume function disturbs me. Except the You Tube website I did not find the application reliable in resuming incomplete downloads from other sites like Vimeo and others. Previously it worked in old versions. But not now. Now the mazor concern is that I found no video after completion of long video downloads, in some cases. Again redownloading gets the video right. This mainly happens during the poor net connection and resuming many a time due to power cut off. Wastage of time and effort is the concern. So I would suggest for some more features by which we can guiss the downloading is going to be successful before completion.The preview feature will help it a lot. Again please debug the problem of resuming in other sites.

    Summary

    This freeware will be victorious with more productive features and nice look. Thank you Sir.

    Updated on Jul 29, 2014

    Non the less it is a nice tool. Only the resuming function in other sites except Youtube is to be rectified and a preview feature for being sure that the download is not going to be void becomes essential. Then YTD Video Downloader will be more dependable.
