Editors' Review

+

This simple freeware application works pretty well, given how basic the interface is. It has two main features: to download FLV files from YouTube, and to convert them to most major formats. If there's a YouTube URL in your clipboard, it will automatically paste it for you when you click on the dialog box. From there, just hit OK and the downloading will commence. One more left-click is all it takes to load the file in the converter, which supports iPhone, iPod, PSP, cell phone, AVI, MP3, WMV, and Xvid. Surprisingly, there's also a basic video editor for cropping videos by time stamp. You can also cut out the sound when converting.

This is one of the lightest editors around, but the simplistic interface belies its functionality and it performs exactly as advertised. We'd like to see support in future editions for hunting down missing codecs, and version 2.1.5 and earlier won't work because of embed code changes on YouTube itself. Still, the YouTube Downloader is proof that not only is video-making accessible to everyone, so is video downloading and editing.

"Can't find flash videos with valid Youtube address."

March 24, 2010  |  By ErikHockman

 |  Version: YouTube Downloader 2.5.3

Pros

Nothing, actually.

Cons

It's inability to find videos I just finished watching. I copied the address from the address bar, so it's not my typing that's the problem.

Summary

Like Daris4u put it, it doesn't work. I'm at the Youtube page...I copy the location from the address bar into memory...it automatically shows up in the "Youtube Downloader" "Enter url box". I select a resolution from the "Download Options" button...I hit OK. I get the message, "No flash video found". OK, so what was I looking at on Youtube at that address? If we didn't find the video, we couldn't have been looking very hard, could we?

"Worked great for me"

March 23, 2010  |  By ron40228

 |  Version: YouTube Downloader 2.5.3

Pros

Quick and simple

Cons

None at this time

Summary

I installed Downloader 2.5.3 and downloaded a video. Saved file played with no problems. No, I don't work for this company. Seeing that there is only one negative rating, there may be an isolated equipment problem.
