Editors' Review

+

YouTube Downloader is a popular, free program that enables you to download and convert online videos (legal content, to which you have the rights) for later viewing on your desktop or mobile device. It can convert files to MOV, MP4, 3GP, WMV, AVI, or MP3.

The name "YouTube Downloader" is terribly misleading because the program, in fact, downloads a whole lot more than just YouTube videos. On the developer's site, you can find an extensive list of additional supported sites including Facebook and Vimeo. This wide net of support easily pushes YouTube Downloader to the top of its category.

When you find a video you'd like to download, copy the URL of the video page and open YouTube Downloader. From there, you'll notice that the program automatically pastes the URL into the appropriate field. Choose your desired Download quality (Best Available is a nice option) and your destination folder, then hit Download. Once your download is finished, hit the Play tab to watch. The Convert tab lets you export to a different file format for playing elsewhere, and gives you a convenient mini editor for making minor alterations before your export. You can change video volume (or remove audio altogether) and splice footage by setting specific start and end times.

One thing that disappointed us was the absence of a one-step download-and-convert function in the free version. If you want the one-step convenience, you'll have to upgrade to Pro ($19.90), which also gives you the capability of downloading multiple videos at once. Also, it would've been nice to be able to name files before downloading them, but that's certainly not a deal-breaker.

For online video enthusiasts looking to download non-copyrighted or personally owned videos, YouTube Downloader appears to be a near-perfect tool. Sure it's missing a few minor conveniences, but its simplicity and the fact that it casts such a wide net of support for online video sites make it virtually unbeatable.

"MAGIC, JUST MAGIC"

June 27, 2012  |  By textappa

 |  Version: YTD YouTube Downloader and Converter 3.7

Pros

Does what it says it will do flawlessly !!!!!

Cons

Slow downloading music videos, but who cares - it's free and it works brilliantly,

The FAQ, Supported Sites (nice to know) and Contact Us links on the interface didn't work

Summary

Absolutely the best I've seen. Works for me on YouTube, Vimeo , And Vevo (great site!).But it would be nice to know which other sites are supported to save time going through the process, only to be told this URL not valid or site supported.

Not 5 but 25 stars *************************

"I love it!"

June 13, 2012  |  By Bob-0

 |  Version: YTD YouTube Downloader and Converter 3.7

Pros

It works as simply and cleanly as advertised

Cons

None so far * Note: choose "Decline" when it asks about adding a search bar and changing search provider. Those that complained about it should have paid attention and realized that it is OPTIONAL when they installed the program.

Summary

This stand alone program is so much better than the other video downloaders I tried in the past (all of which were browser toolbar add-ons) I'll never go back to those crappy programs again!

"Beware of toolbar"

June 07, 2012  |  By trailhub

 |  Version: YTD YouTube Downloader and Converter 3.7

Pros

Program works as advertised

Cons

Adds an unstable toolbar to your browser

Summary

The program works just fine, but the installation put a "YTD" toolbar into my browser which caused IE to behave strangely (my AV program kept trying to create a dump, and the cursor kept freezing). Disabled the toolbar and IE acts normal again.
