However the name of the program is quiet misleading as the tool is efficient to download a lot more than just YouTube Videos. You can find a widespread list of additional supported sites including Facebook and Vimeo, on the developer’s site. This widespread support easily prevails YouTube Downloader to the top of its category.
YouTube Downloader is pretty easy to use. Whenever you find any video to download just copy its URL and open up YouTube Downloader. There, you’ll notice that the program automatically pastes the URL into the appropriate field.
You will be provided with a number of download qualities, chose one from them of your choice and then you destination folder and simply hit Download. Once the download is finished, tap to play tab to watch the video. Through the convert tab you can export different file format for playing elsewhere, and it gives you a convenient mini editor for making minor alterations before your export. Also you can change video volume (or remove audio altogether) and splice footage by setting specific start and end times.
The thing which disappointed us in the software is the absence of a one-step download-and-convert function in the free version. For the one-step convenience, you’ll have to upgrade to Pro ($19.90), that will also provide you capability of downloading multiple videos at once. Furthermore, it would’ve been nice to be able to name files before downloading them, but that’s certainly not a deal-breaker.
For the folks who are online video enthusiasts and are looking forward to download non-copyrighted or personally owned videos, YouTube Downloader appears to be a near-perfect tool. Although it’s missing few conveniences but its simplicity and the fact that it casts such a wide net of support for online video sites make it virtually unbeatable.
