As the name would suggest, Free YouTube Download lets you download videos from YouTube and convert and save them to your hard drive so you can watch them whenever you want. This program is also available for Mac and Android.
Older users may well recognise Free YouTube Download as it was originally released back in 2006 and has been receiving regular updates ever since.
Installation is simple and easy as is using the software. As well as this, the interface is easy on the eyes and intuitive to use. You only need to copy the video’s URL on the program and hit the “paste” button for the download to begin.
Free YouTube Download has some key special features that raise it above many of its rivals. Users can choose to save whole YouTube playlists, user channels, videos from personal playlists (History, Liked, Favorites, Watch later) and also videos from different categories such as movies, music, and even YouTube charts.
Downloading YouTube videos is also fast, and it’s possible to download several videos at the same time, and in their original quality. Users also have the option to download in a wide variety of popular formats, including MP4, MKV (up to 8K UHD), WEBM, and MP3). It’s also possible to convert downloaded videos to to different formats again if you so want.
But it’s the little touches where Free YouTube Download really shines. You can also open lists of links from any text files as well. Videos can be set sync with iTunes automatically and convert them for use on iPhones, iPads and iPods, if anyone still uses one. It also works with proxy servers.
