YouTube Downloader allows you to download videos from YouTube, including HD and HQ videos, Facebook, Vevo, and dozens of other video sites and convert them to other video formats. The program is easy to use--just specify the URL for the video you want to download and click the Download button. The program also allows you to convert downloaded videos for iPod, iPhone, PSP, Cell Phone, Windows Media, XVid and MP3, or play video that you have previously downloaded or converted.
The installation operation is quick and uneventful. The GUI is made from a regular window with an uncomplicated layout.
After entering the URL of the video you want to get, you can select the output format, speed (ranging from 1X to12X) and quality, by selecting an entry from a drop-down menu (e.g. HD 1080p/MP4/H.264/AAC).
All you have to do is establish the output directory and proceed with the downloading procedure, with the simple click of a button. Unfortunately, there are no other options or configurable settings available through this tool.
For instance, YouTube Downloader does not integrate a Clipboard live-monitoring function or let you prepare sequential downloads by creating a queue. However, the app is very low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory, thus it doesn't affect the computer's overall performance. It has a good response time, finishes a downloading job rapidly and delivers videos with a very good image and sound quality.
No error dialogs have been shown in our tests, and the tool did not hang or crash. We haven't encountered any issues in our tests. All in all, YouTube Downloader comes packed with the necessary and suffice elements for downloading high-quality YouTube clips quickly, and it can be handled by all types of users, regardless of their skill level.
