YouTube Video Downloader review
If you’re interested in extracting and converting very high-quality video files from YouTube and other video hosts, YouTube Downloader is a great app for the job. It provides an intuitive and unobtrusive way to download and convert the videos you want, and fast.
YouTube Downloader was designed to provide a clear and easy way to save online video clips for conversion and offline viewing. The app is very easy to use. The “Drop-Box” feature enables you to copy and paste the URL into the app and start the extraction process immediately, as well as use drag and drop to organise your files. The simplistic layout of the design means your you can view all tasks in a comprehensive list format.
Key Features 10/10
YouTube Downloader supports video resolutions of up to 2160p (UHD). Unlike other video downloader apps, this one retains the original quality of the file so you can view your favourite YouTube videos offline on your computer at the same caliber of the original.
Despite the name, this app supports files from a number of other online video servers apart from YouTube. Easily download clips from Dailymotion, Vimeo, Facebook, Metacafe and Hulu at your leisure.
As well as download video files, YouTube Downloader enables conversion of the files once you have grabbed it. Convert your video to one of the many popular file formats available, so you can edit or view your videos through whichever programme and device you choose. The app comes equipped with a basic media player which means you can preview your files (and witness the impressive quality!) without opening separate a separate programme.
Another feature of the app is that you can download and convert entire YouTube playlists with the click of a button. With the batch conversion, it’s easy to quickly download a selection of videos in one go.
The app also has an audio extraction feature. For the whole or partial audio extraction and conversion from an online video, it’s easy and fast to isolate the audio you need and produce a separate file to use as you please.
YouTube Downloader has been designed for simple, quick use to suit users at any level. The interface features a clean, basic design which makes it easy to view and organise your files. Once you have copied and pasted the URL of your chosen clip, it’s just a matter of selecting the desired output format, location, and other details, and you can begin the download process.
Batch downloads also make it easier to do your jobs in bulk so you can efficiently download several files to enjoy later.
Cross-platform Use 9/10
YouTube Downloader runs on all versions of Windows from Windows XP and Vista through to the more recent Windows 8, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 10 and Windows 10 64 Bit.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated programme to download online videos for your own personal use and viewing pleasure, without compromising on the quality of the video, YouTube Downloader is a great option for Windows Users. Its ability to download entire YouTube playlists is a valuable feature that many comparable apps are lacking.
It’s quick to download and is so unobtrusive that you can enjoy batch downloads without it affecting your computer’s performance. Its user-friendly format makes it suitable for all users and features a 10 day trial period, so you can try the app before spending money on it.
All in all, YouTube Downloader probably gives you everything you would want and more from a video conversion service. Its ability to retain the quality of the original video is arguably the feature that puts it in a league of its own.
