Editors' Review

+

YTD Video Downloader downloads YouTube videos onto your hard drive. This is a very useful feature if you ever want to view a video offline or convert it into a format that can be stored on a mobile device.

Pros

Quick conversions: In our tests, YTD Video Downloader's free version took no time to convert our videos.

Mobile format conversion: If you want to take your files with you after you've downloaded them, this program also converts files to a variety of formats that work well with mobile devices, such as iPads.

Intuitive interface: The YTD Video Downloader interface is very easy to navigate.

Cons

Overselling: The app is riddled with ads and buttons that sing the praises of the paid version. This is slightly annoying, especially considering the free version works so well that it's unlikely many people would want to upgrade.

Bottom Line

If you want to store your favorite YouTube videos for offline viewing, YTD Video Downloader is an excellent choice. Even if you're new to this type of activity, you should have no problem understanding how to use this app.

"Does what it says it does, but also takes over browsers"

December 09, 2016  |  By m4ch4x0r

2016-12-09 08:14:28  |  By m4ch4x0r

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

Pros

It downloads videos from YouTube without a problem, but it does take it's dear sweet time to do so because it's the "free" version.

Cons

Without asking a question, it installs extensions into Safari and Chrome, changes your home page in both browsers, changes your search engine to Yahoo (I mean, who actually uses Yahoo anymore?), and it steals your DNA code by taking a hair sample.

Okay, the last one was an exaggeration, but you get my point.

Summary

So the software is simple enough to use. You tell it what to download by URL, and it does so.

It's slow though. On my 300 mbps down connection (that's 37.5 megabytes per second for those that are counting), it could only muster a download rate of 1.2 megabytes per second. Of course, I would expect this with software meant to make you want to buy the full version, so -1 star for that.

Also, this program takes over your browsers with extensions for Chrome and Safari, and changes your search engine and home page to Yahoo WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. If I could take away all the stars for that and replace them with black holes, I would.

"One of the best"

November 28, 2016  |  By Voorhees5

2016-11-28 22:29:31  |  By Voorhees5

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

Pros

Said it supports hundreds of websites and I've tried many of them. Very easy to use and always work successfully.

Cons

Does include tool. Decline it.
It can be a great partner with All2MP4 for Windows, freeware to convert YouTube video and other video downloaded to MP4 and the format you want. It can also download video.
Free Download:

Summary

All2MP4 for Windows can work as a great partner to this YouTube downloader.

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.7.1

Pros

It gets the job done, it downloads your youtube videos and you cna even convert them into mp3 files so I'm satisfied

Cons

There are some malware in the installation program, however you can DECLINE their installation. Read carefully when you install YTD and check what you accept to install, decline the OpenSearch thing and the Malware protection program and you'll be fine.
