Editors' Review

+

YTD lets you quickly download videos from YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Metacafe, and more, all with just a few clicks. Especially if you frequently download videos, you'll enjoy the smooth processing and handy extra features this app comes with.

Pros

Downloading options: With YTD you can choose to complete a straight download from any of the sites mentioned above. You can also convert downloaded files to multiple different output formats, and you can opt to download only the audio track of a file in certain situations.

Speed and versatility: This app boasts impressive download speeds, and it gives you the ability to initiate multiple downloads at once. You can also pause downloads and then resume them at a later time, and you can preview part of a file you're downloading to make sure that what you're getting is actually what you were after.

Cons

No Help: There is no Help file or manual available for YTD. Although most processes are pretty straightforward, it would be nice to have an alternative to emailing Support if you run into trouble or aren't sure how to access a particular feature.

Bottom Line

YTD enables you to download and convert files from many different sites quickly and efficiently. The speed of downloads completed though this app is impressive, and the number of downloading options available makes this a good tool to have at your disposal.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of YTD 5.2.11.

"An all in one video downloader and file converter:"

January 14, 2017  |  By kuruvanthody

2017-01-14 18:58:52  |  By kuruvanthody

 |  Version: YTD 6.1.27

Pros

This is fantastic YouTube downloader software.

I see this more as a one stop shop for my video and conversion needs such as downloads from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and many other websites. The application description says it makes use of download acceleration in its software but I can see it really in action when I use.

Downloads work for all types of files irrespective of its resolution such as HD, UHD etc. It also supports use of different file types as well besides its good video and audio conversion features.

All in all, a MUST application for any user whether a normal or an advanced one.

5 starts indeed!

Cons

None found so far!

Summary

All in all, a great versitile download and converter product to have on all systems

 |  Version: YTD 6.1.27

Pros

Much better interface.
Very intuitive; easy to use - you are up and running, or up and downloading in no time.
Error reporting; and gives you options to deal with.
Progress bars, identifies duplicates, can set to automatically get best dl quality.
Works very easy with YouTube

Cons

I wish it was free, but you (don't) get what you don't pay for. Still, very good value for a low price.

Summary

I'm VERY happy with this program. Has been my go - to downloader for weeks and will be from now on.

"Great tool that has improved over time"

January 12, 2017  |  By bkwinbu

2017-01-12 11:58:21  |  By bkwinbu

 |  Version: YTD 6.1.27

Pros

Nice User Interface
The ability to Download PlayLists
The ability to modify output format
Progress bar
Ability to continue downloads if the app closes before downloads are complete

Cons

Multi-Device Licensing
Playlist Downloads freeze at times

Summary

This a great tool that improves with each upgrade. They seem to resolve bug or add features in tune with what end users desire. A Multi-Device license would be a great addition and/or the ability to run on multiple machines and limit active use to one computer at a time.

"A MAJOR improvement on past versions"

January 06, 2017  |  By dipojay07

2017-01-06 19:56:35  |  By dipojay07

 |  Version: YTD 6.1.26

Pros

The newer UI is amazing and much moire visually appealing to the eye. I like the fact that everything just seems to be in one place now. Best thing about the new look tho...the download list! gives a snapshot of the video, download bar is also nicely improved.

User friendliness can't be overstated here. That i can access/download YouTube vidz and playlists from the program is just wonderful. As mentioned before, everything being in one place now (add urls, paste links and conversion) just makes things so much more convenient. The little floating YTD box that sits on the side of the screen for when you close the main window, easy dragging of links to be downloaded etc, is also a nice touch i suppose.

Cons

So my main gripe with YTD has always been its inability to handle a large playlist of videos and sadly the same problem shows up in this version also. I tend to build a playlist of videos I like over a longer period of days to a week so we are talking about 40-60 videos. Unfortunately every time you're trying to download this many or more videos, the program is likely to freeze up on you halfway through. This means you have to force close and start again. Good thing is most times after restarting it picks up where you left off but occasionally you may not be so lucky.

The aforementioned floating box is nice and all but would have been nice if i could customize it as I liked - maybe make it less apparent, use the old taskbar option so that it doesn't appear over a lot of my other windows. Stuff like that. Basically, would have been nice to have choice.

Summary

All in all YTD has always been and still is one of...if not THE best way to download YT videos. That said, it may have some issues that will occur with only heavy users and what not. Still highly recommended tho.

"Quick, Simple, and Easy"

December 17, 2016  |  By JessZizz

2016-12-17 21:25:59  |  By JessZizz

 |  Version: YTD 6.1.21

Pros

-I can tell each file to go to a specific destination rather than only one spot
-Directly adding files to iTunes saves lots of time
-Drag-and-Drop URL feels very practical

Cons

-The watermark stays there even after you close the program, but you can right click it to close it separately.

Summary

This is a very practical and easy-to-use program, and I have yet to come across any failed download attempts or problems with the program.
