YouTube YTD Video Downloader

Great product!

Installs a that is basically just adware.

OK

It works the best out of all the different apps I have tried.

Select type of offense:

Theres no built-in program help for YTD Video Downloader, but the app links to the helpful Web site. One nice addition for power users is support for the open-source FFmpeg media framework for converting files using a large range of customizable parameters. The Web site also provides command-line examples for less experienced users who want to dip their toes into manual conversion.

Pros

Totally slow! Bad video quality. Not to mention the spyware..and adware problems. If you want to download youtube videos, get VideoZonk or even MelodyQuest.

Pros

YTD is disappointing. Get VideoZonk or even MelodyQuest instead.

NOT recommended. Try VideoZonk or the cheaper MelodyQuest.

You have selected the following software to Smart Install:

The player works by loading a specific directory on your machine, then listing all of the supported videos it can show. Double-clicking loads the video with a very basic set of player controls — play/pause, full-screen, volume — that are miliar to anyone whos ever used any online video service. Its about as bare-bones as a video player can get, but it works fine.

Its free and works great!

ERROR MESSAGE

I was totally sold on this program when it first came out. It was totally free, and you could do batch downloads and conversions into your chosen format, and it was st. With time, the options changed. I understand the idea that they need to make a buck in this world. But with time the program has went down hill and they are asking an arm and a leg for so much hassle. It still works great, but its popularity is suffering greatly over what it could be.

The quick way to put this program back on top would be to get rid of the malware that installs with this app which is the single biggest complaint about it. The good thing is there is an option not to install it. You just have to read the screens carefully while installing the program. You can cancel the installation of the and malware in the first setup screen. If you do, the program will nicely skip those and just instYouTubeall the main app.

CNET TechTracker will now automatically install software without requiring further action by you. (Note: This feature automatically accepts associated EULAs and third party applications on your behalf.)

Ok

Very easy to download and convert videos.

The first thing I would do to win back followers is remove the speed restriction of the downloads. Let it fly like it used to. Then I would do what I can to get rid of the contract with the malware company which may be easier said than done. Or at least make the customer more aware of what is being installed and make it more obvious on how to NOT install that portion of the software. The last thing for them to do would be drop the price. $29 is way too much for a utility app like this especially for the casual user. The people who are going to pay are the power users that want the batch downloads, but honestly Ive found free programs that are getting to be just as good and are merely browser plugins. So to appeal to both the casual user and power user, drop the price.

Safe, st, youtube downloads. Gives you a nice list of types of ways to convert. Lets say you want to download a song, but dont want video, so just convert to MP3! Its great.

Cons

YTD Video Downloader automatically loads whatever URL youve got saved to your primary clipboard, saving you the trouble of hitting Ctrl-V (and also possibly embarrassing yourself with an accidentally exposed URL). Hitting Download starts automatically transferring the MP4 file to the customizable Save to location, but the entire bottom half of the intece is dedicated to promoting the Pro version (along with a large, red Upgrade Now button at the top of the intece).

2. Browser Search Hijacker

Summary

The Cons: First is the heavily complained about possible malware and browser search hijacker. It really can cause headaches if you do not disable them during the installation process. Lastly the price is outrageous for the casual user who wants the full features. I am using a browser plug-in now that does all the same functions except batch processing, and its free, and to get quality full batch processing only costs $5. So how does $5 compare to $29? That is where this really looses out.

I had to get a friend to help me to use it because I had no idea on my own. But overall, great.

Multiple files in the Activity tab can be sorted by any of the columns — Size, Progress, Speed, Status, and ETA — and the columns can be resized, but the columns cant be reordered or removed, and its odd that the entire intece doesnt resize or go full-screen. Thus, if a video ils, its difficult to read what comes after Failure (6) … in the space allotted.

YTD Video Downloader does what it says on the tin, and does it quickly. Its also regularly updated to account for changes in the various video service platforms. If you dont mind the additional software bundling and aggressive promotion for the Pro version, its a powerful, lightweight, and free tool for saving streaming video for later viewing.

CNET TechTracker will attempt to install this software without interrupting you again. If an application requires manual installation, CNET TechTracker will download the installer and prompt you to take further action.

What you pay is what you get. Well I want to download youtube videos, but please dont fill my computer with spyware and virus!

Great product albeit a little hard to use

YTD Video Downloader is a great little piece of freeware for downloading and converting video…if you can ignore the aggressive upselling and multiple browser add-on bundling offers. It quickly downloads video from YouTube, Vimeo, Blip.tv, Vevo, and more than 60 other supported video sites, converts video to the standard formats for iPad, iPhone and PSP (MP4); iPod (MOV); cell phone (3GP); Windows Media Video (WMV); Xvid MPEG-4 (AVI) and MPEG Audio Layer 3 (MP3), and also plays back videos in a very basic player.

If you think this is an error, please contact CNET TechTracker Support for further assistance.

The Pro: Well thats easy… It works great and is easy to use. The audio is the best among those I have tried so r, but others have narrowed the gap considerably. Some of the other apps I have used do something to the audio it either low quality or throwing off the sync. This doesnt do that. Also, I have noticed a few of the apps must capture the stream rather than actually download the media because they will sometimes give video hiccups during the playback at the same place I may get them while watching video during the download. Again, YouTube this doesnt do that.

Good program but bundles a
