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.

"My Fifth Upgrade with YTD"

February 11, 2016  |  By CarlfJDPhD

2016-02-11 18:35:59  |  By CarlfJDPhD

 |  Version: YTD Video Downloader 5.1.1

Pros

Easy to use. Very few errors and downloading, and work superfast.

Cons

About the only negative is that they've changed the user interface a couple times over the years and I'm not sure it made the program better. But that is no reason to not buy the product, especially since it is so easy to use.

Summary

Top program at a reasonable price.

Updated on Feb 12, 2016

A quick update, after using the free version for a short time I decided to take the company up on an update offer. Be sure to watch for three, at least, different offers. The first is a half-price offer, which seems to run all the time. The second, the one I'm using, is to write a review of the product in exchange for a reduced price. The third is to use the TrialPay service to earn a free copy of YTD Pro by completing at least one offer.

Pros

Free, that's all

Installs malware. The moment I tried to start this program, Microsoft Security reported threat called Rogue:JS/FakeCall.D

Avoid this, installs trojan that may compromise your computer's security or damage your computer. YTD tried to install this malware, 5 times in the short time I tried to download a 3 minute video.

None now, unless you can install, quarantine the virus, and then setup your firewall to block YTD, which probably makes it not download videos.
