Editors' Review

You may have noticed that many YouTube videos are actually music with some kind of visual accompaniment added, such as still image slideshows, cover art, psychedelic effects, and a particular favorite, a video camera pointed at a spinning turntable. You can download and save tunes from YouTube with the greatest of ease with YouTube Music Downloader -- videos, too. This free tool makes it easy to grab and save YouTube files to play later, share with your friends, and do the other things you can do with freely available content. But YouTube Music Downloader lets you quickly choose your audio output quality from a drop-down menu, which saves tons of time in two important ways: it eliminates the need to convert the raw download to your chosen format and bit rate, and it makes the job quick and easy enough that you'll actually save that song instead of just thinking about it. By the time you've hemmed and hawed, you could be done with the download.

YouTube Music Downloader's interface is pretty basic, which goes with the territory: fields for Video URL and Save To (destination folder) as well as the previously mentioned drop-down menu, which changes its options between audio and video formats when you check either MP3/Music or Video. A Status bar tracks the job; a check box tells the program to delete videos after conversion. A Skin button has Hue and Saturation sliders that can produce any interface color you'd like. Clicking Update informed us that ours was the program's latest version. That's all there is to YouTube Music Downloader's controls, except a Help button that accesses basic Web resources.

We browsed to YouTube, searched for a familiar tune, and copied its link from the search results. We pasted the URL into YouTube Music Downloader, selected our format (which depends on availability), and pressed Download and Convert (actually, "Download and Convert!" but we kept our powder dry until the results were in). The job completed in a few seconds. YouTube Music Downloader not only grabbed the tune but the cover art as well. The results more than earned the exclamation mark!

"MALWARE ALERT! Don't freaking download this!"

April 29, 2013  |  By eliasp02

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 5.0

Pros

Nothing. Nothing at all.

Cons

MALWARE MALWARE MALWARE. Additionally, MALWARE.

Summary

I foolishly installed this program without reading the user reviews. That was an epic fail. Before I knew it, the program had installed three or four shortcuts to my desktop and had erased my chrome taskbar shortcut.

This download has more trojans than the Bronze Age.

"Had Malware problems this time.."

March 17, 2013  |  By mrtechfreak

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 5.0

Pros

Used this before, then after running SpyBot, and removing various spyware and malware, this Youtube downloader stopped working.. but at that time I had no idea why.. so I downloaded a fresh YouTubeMusicDownloader. I was very careful at install and un-clicked the extra ad-ware etc buttons, and installed it. Next thing the AVG antivirus spotted amalware item.. bang, still installed itself and added toolbars, changed registry files and more crap that I don't even know what.. so now I don't trust this anymore. will have to find something better than that.. thumbs down for greedy malware spreaders.

Cons

Too many to list, read above,

Summary

They started off good in the past, but now they are corrupt and greedy.. sad to see developers go that way.. stay away fro Music Youtube downloader, or risk having coupon companion, spying on your every move, and more crap you don't even know what they find out about YOU, yes, YOU, thats why they call it YOU tube ..get it, they get you into the TUBE

"BEWARE! Comes with malware."

March 14, 2013  |  By csrun

 |  Version: YouTube Music Downloader 5.0

Pros

Never got to use it.

Cons

CNET download came with a ton of malware. It changed my browser and my home page. I've never had that happen with a CNET download before. I always thought CNET was the safest place to get open source software. Not this time.

Summary

Had a rough time getting the malware, toolbare and unwanted programs off my computer. Finally gave up and did a system restore. I was really lucky it worked. Really, beware of this. What a hassle!!
