Editorial review


Ana Cezara Savin Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.3
YouTube Free Downloader allows you to download videos from Yahoo Video, YouTube, Facebook, Google Video and other video hosting websites, and to convert them into different formats, such as: MOV, MP4, 3GP, WMV, AVI or MP3.
As you may have already noticed, the name of the program does not quite encapsulate its features as you can use it to download from various sites.

It is easy to use: find the video you'd like to download, copy the URL of the video page, open YouTube Downloader and it will automatically paste the URL into the appropriate field. Then you choose the desired quality, the folder in which to save the file and... press Download.

You can convert videos for iPod, iPhone, PSP, cellphones, into Windows media, Xvid and MP3. The program also gives you the possibility to cut and select the output quality of the converted videos and to splice footage by setting specific start and end times.

It is simple to use and the fact that it povides such a wide support for online video sites makes it extremely useful.


  • You can also download personally owned videos.


  • The absence of a one-step download-and-convert function in the free version.
  • You can't name the files before downloading them.

What's new in version 3.3
