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.

"with we didn't need soooo many updates"

December 15, 2010  |  By newsletters2010

 |  Version: YouTube Downloader 2.6.2

Pros

Works great, even with videos other than on Youtube. Just wish I didn't have to keep runing an update when it doesn't work with Youtube. Have used the converter on older vides - worked great.

Cons

The changes in flash makes it necessary to update frequently

Summary

I recommend it, it works on other sites with flash video (the specs are available as to which files you can download and from which sites). Whatever you need, somebody out there has probably made a video of it and now you can download it for quick and easy referrence. And if you don't have a player to play the video, the downloader can also convert it for you.

"WORKS! but only with YouTube"

December 08, 2010  |  By RodFive

 |  Version: YouTube Downloader 2.6.2

Pros

I use CometBird (IE alternative) that claims to download but it rarely works.
This software has succeeded almost every time. Yes, I said almost.

Cons

Doesn't work every time.

Summary

It is easy to use. While watching the video you want, highlight the address bar, right click, 'COPY' Go back to the YouTube Downloader and the address is already in the window. Just click, 'DOWNLOAD' That's all! I like easy.

"Does what it is supposed to do and FREE!"

November 18, 2010  |  By ariesvicki

 |  Version: YouTube Downloader 2.6.2

Pros

This makes it easy to download from YouTube. And I love that this is available Free to use. That gives it extra points from me.

Cons

I haven't found any.

Summary

I recommend this program to others. This is available for free which makes it a plus in my book. I have had no problems at all downloading YouTube videos. The resulting quality is the same at what was presented on YouTube. I haven't tried to use it on other sites, so cannot comment on that. But I am very pleased witih the program. It does what it is supposed to.

 |  Version: YouTube Downloader 2.6.2

Pros

It could download videos but doesn't work anymore. It's free and works great when it does

It keeps on giving an error message "No flv file found". So far no working updates. Disappointing in that sense
