This application will help you download videos from YouTube and saves them on your computer.
The program has a pleasant and uncluttered interface providing no useless functions. It allows you to select the quality of the downloaded video: 240p, medium quality, high quality, high definition or full high definition. Yet, the tool informs you that some options are available only if the video supports them. Selecting the video quality, you can also change its extension from FLV to AVI or MP4. This feature can be quite useful if your video player doesn’t support FLV files or if you want to transfer the file to your iPod.

The last thing that you need to edit before starting the download is the output location. While the selected video is being downloaded, you get some information about the file’s status, the progress and the time elapsed. I like the fact that the program is very easy to use, it works fast and it has no limitations. However, I believe that there are some aspects that should be improved with more converting options. The other thing that lacks is the possibility of downloading multiple files at once.

In conclusion, the developers managed to create a simple program which can be used by everyone.

Guest Been using this a lot due to not having expensive, limited mobile data packages, in a poor reception area of 3G, that gets congested frequently. (The Australian country Internet outside of ADSL zones.) YouTube streaming demand most times is too fast, so this has been very handy indeed, instead of using live browser downloaders that are unreliable. I'd donate to one of those.

Sadly, as of today, or could be a few months ago for all I know I'm plagued by "Unable to download this video". Version: 2.9.9.21 installed. I've downloaded a tutorial series previously without problems. It appears there may be an intellectual property block put in place at some time in the recent past.
