Over the past few years, downloadable music and video systems have become ubiquitous – and also very profitable for companies. It seems like just about every major internet brand worth its dot com has a downloader on offer. However, the Youtube downloader is one of the best in that it’s extremely easy to use – and it’s free too.
Youtube Downloader allows you to download videos – most obviously from Youtube itself, but also Yahoo Video, Facebook, Google Video, MySpace TV and many other sites. Downloading the video is very simple, and all you need to do is to copy and paste the URL of the video’s location into a bar on Youtube downloader, and click “ok”. This will store the video on your pc or laptop, meaning that you can watch it any time, wherever you are. This means that it’s an invaluable and low-hassle resource if you frequently want to watch videos when you are out and about with your laptop.
Youtube Downloader will also allow you to convert files, too. So a video that you have captured on Youtube or Facebook can be converted into a format that’s suitable to be run on your iPhone, mobile, or PSP, and with Windows Media and Flash. It can also convert the audio feed of a video to MP3 format. Youtube Downloader is therefore ideal if you and the rest of your household have a number of electronic gadgets and toys, as it provides a one size fits all solution to file sharing.
Youtube Downloader can also be used to capture videos from leading adult entertainment sites like RedTube, and age rated videos on Youtube itself. This might be music to your ears – however, if you intend it for use by the whole family, then you’ll need to keep an eye on what your teenagers are downloading (but you do this anyway, right?).
Although it does not have extensive video editing tools, Youtube Downloader allows you to cut videos, and change the quality of clips. This is excellent if you need to make your video smaller in terms of memory, and also quicker to run on one of the many platforms that Youtube Downloader supports.
If you want to download playlists as well as tracks, that will be no trouble at all– Youtube Downloader will let you do this, too. Perfect for impromptu parties!
Youtube Downloader is available in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian versions, as well as Romanian and Portuguese. More language versions are added all of the time – this is handy if you’re recommending it to contacts that stay in other countries.
In terms of hardware, Youtube Downloader demands very little in relation to what it can do. You’ll need a Pentium 233 Mhz – one with Windows XP, Windows 7 or Vista installed as an operating system. Your PC or laptop will also need at least 64 MB of RAM. In terms of software, you’ll need Internet Explorer version 6 – or an equivalent competitor. You’ll also need Adobe Flash Player version 9, or higher.
The basic Youtube Downloader is available as freeware, and has all the features listed above, which is likely to be everything that casual users could possibly want from a downloader. However, there’s also a Youtube Downloader Pro. This paid-for version allows you to download multiple videos, accelerates download times, and has a faster system of converting videos. If you become a frequent user of Youtube Downloader, then upgrading to the ‘Pro’ version may well be worth your while. And at less than $20, it’s not going to break the bank either!
In short, Youtube Downloader is one of the best pieces of software on the market today for people that want to download and share music files. It’s free, so easy to use that it’s virtually idiot-proof, and supports a very wide range of platforms. It’s being updated constantly, and is getting better and better. So what are you waiting for?
