    September 18, 2014  |   By meutterboy

    Version: YouTube Music Downloader 7.8

    Pros

    This youtube music downloader works like a charm! I love it. Worked without problem. Powerful , free and clean, no addon, at least for me.

    It took me 3 hours to search google, ask in forums, try those youtube downloader software in download.com to find a decent and clean solution to download youtube. The result is this Youtube Music Downloader is the best. Easily download youtube video and music, support playlist, youtube search, multiple tasks, etc. Moreover, it is Free and Clean.

    Cons

    No cons. IMO.

    "Watch out for secret adware installations"

    September 16, 2014  |   By issuj9

    Version: YouTube Music Downloader 7.8

    Pros

    Yes it does download many (but not all) youtube video audio tracks.

    Cons

    No matter if you opt out of all included bloatware this may install adware and make other changes that may cripple other seemingly unrelated but critical functions of your computer. A month after installing youtubemusicdownloader I experienced the following: a new directory and files installed with mazaa.exe. All software updates routines stopped working, e.g., Windows 7; Windows Media Center guides etc.; Adobe Flash. It seems a third party winsock created these problems which took a few hours to figure out and fix. I never had an issue with this computer until I installed this software. So as the saying goes: if a product is free; you're (being made into) the product. Apparently cnet does not screen software for such. None of the adware that is installed (without your knowledge!) may be a virus or trojan technically speaking; but it's (mazaa.exe) activities will be detected as such by Norton and per all the tangible effects it may as well be one.
