Saving videos directly from YouTube to your hard drive is a widely asked-for feature. One of the possible candidates to satisfy this demand is YouTube Video Downloader Pro. However, even though the thought of saving videos from YouTube directly to your computer with an integrated and seamless procedure seems attractive, this software doesn't deliver.
If you have found YouTube Downloader Pro while searching for the perfect solution, we advise against trying it. The installer asks for permission to change your default home page as well as your search engine. If you opt out of this, which you probably should, the software still installs obscure packages but won't work or even show traces of itself. By the looks of it, this software seems to be an attempt to install adware to your machine without your full consent.
YouTube Downloader Pro doesn't deliver what it claims and should not be considered as an alternative to the handy, simple, and well functioning plug-ins for Firefox or Safari already available.

Nothing good about a non-working application
Simply doesn't work. It says download complete but no application can be found. this product either doesn't work or is a scam. Cnet should know better. Don't they test this stuff before accepting it to their site?
I've gone through several YouTube downloading apps. Typically their downfall is Google's continual tweeking of their web code, presumably to stop downloaders, thus breaking the application's ability to function. Some developers have valiantly tried to keep up but instead gave up.
The only one that has consistently worked and is consistently updated to thwart changes in code at YouTube is DownloadHelper, the add-on extension for Firefox. It's not perfect. Sometimes you have to restart Firefox to get DownloadHelper out of a bad mode where only vapor is downloaded. But it's the only one with decent reliability over time.
As for YouTube Download 'Pro', it sounds amateur and not a little nepharious.
