YouTube Video Downloader is a reliable video download application. By pressing the "New" button, users can paste the link to a YouTube video and specify the format in which they would like to store the downloaded file. The download location where the video will be stored on the hard drive can also be specified, as well as several video quality settings (Frame size, Frame rate and Bit rate) and audio settings (Bit rate, Sample rate and Channels). Among the available output formats are: MPEG, AVI, DivX, XviD, MP4, 3GP, WMV, ASF, MOV, QT and VOB. YouTube Video Downloader also allows you to save just the audio of a video to several audio file formats, like: MP3, AC3, AAC and M4A.
YouTube Video Downloader is a very user-friendly program. The GUI is well organized; the options clear and new users lose no time in familiarizing themselves with the application. At the first attempt, the selected YouTube video was downloaded correctly when I tested this application. Since YouTube Video Downloader is Shareware, users are obliged to register and pay the $29.95 fee, in order to be able to download complete YouTube videos, since the evaluation version only downloads 60% of each video.
- Very user friendly GUI
