Editors' Review

Guppy's YouTube Saved is a very basic free YouTube downloader and file converter. Although it's free, extremely compact, and not difficult to use, it offers few of the conversion formats and options found in nearly every other YouTube downloader these days, free or not. Worse, it's buggy and crash-prone.

YouTube Saved's installer required us to decline more "extras" than we're used to seeing, so be careful as you install this one. The super-basic user interface describes the program's four steps: 1) Copy and paste a YouTube URL; 2) Select your device from the drop-down menu; 3) Select a destination folder; and 4) Start. There's no Help file or settings, and we declined to click the Special Offers link. We pasted a video's URL and clicked the Format menu, but instead of device types, the drop-down menu offered just five choices, and two of those were 3GP. The others were MP4, FLV, and WebM. But YouTube Saved downloaded our video to our selected folder and offered to play it, which we opted for. File quality is adequate for YouTube or mobile devices. But when we tried to download a new video, YouTube Saved issued a series of script error messages and then froze and crashed. The script error messages persisted after we closed and reopened YouTube Saved.

It's not difficult to do better than YouTube Saved. Free YouTube downloaders are common, even abundant, and we've tried many. All but a handful of them outperformed YouTube Saved.

"roller coaster sick"

February 11, 2013  |  By ctrapeze

 |  Version: YouTube Saved 1.9

Pros

see summary please

Cons

please see summary

Summary

i don't trust this item. Two reasons: All the HIGH ups and LOW downs - looks like a shoot out. AND: at least one reviewer double-tipping.

PS: i have a HARD time with "advertisements", "harmful" or not - they ALWAYS "require action" in my pc!

"It does the job!"

May 04, 2012  |  By kis-kiss

 |  Version: YouTube Saved 1.2

Pros

Works on my computer just fine, I didn't see any malware when I downloaded and used it.

Cons

none so far

Summary

I didn't see any malware warnings and it downloads all the videos that I want, so I don't have to go back and forth to youtube. Plus sometimes youtube blocks a lot of videos so when I get it on my computer I don't have to worry not seeing it on Youtube.

It will be nice to have a feature to download multiple video at a time.

Summary

Well, it just works! (and free)

"I Uninstalled it right after installation."

May 01, 2012  |  By scott992012

 |  Version: YouTube Saved 1.2

Pros

Downloaded quickly.

Cons

Avast detected a malicious url blocked from the thank you page. That's enough for me to not trust the program itself.

"NO MALWARE"

May 01, 2012  |  By aquariumlust

 |  Version: YouTube Saved 1.2

Pros

Not sure what SteveWilliamsCNET is talking about. The product does not download or install any malware. In fact the program is really great, and does exactly as advertised.

Cons

There are some advertisements, but none that are harmful or that require action.

Summary



Updated on May 1, 2012

For some reason, Avast flags the Thank You page as malware, but I can attest there is absolutely no malware present on this page from this program.

Updated on May 1, 2012

The entire website is also verified by Norton and Verisign.

"DISGUSTING - BEWARE - ALERT - DONT DOWNLOAD"

May 01, 2012  |  By SteveWilliamsCNET

 |  Version: YouTube Saved 1.2

Pros

None. I would not use this software in any format.

Cons

Tried to install MALWARE from a redirected thank you page.

Summary

When I started to install this software I was given the option to install all the usual spammy web bars which I refused. When I clicked the install button I was redirected to a so called thank you page which was detected by my anti virus program (AVAST) as trying to install malware and make changes to my registry. This is DISGUSTING behaviour from a software producer and CNET needs to take note of this. DO NOT DOWNLOAD and more so DO NOT INSTALL. Avoid.

All I have to do is search for any video online and boom its saved as as an mp3 onto my computer and I can put it on my phone or mp3player. Love it!
