The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 4.0
YTD Video Downloader is a simple application that allows downloading videos from YouTube, Facebook and other websites and converting them to various formats.
Its interface is neat and intuitive. Anyone can use this program without any problem, including beginners. It automatically detects the URL of the video and adds it to the download queue. Furthermore, it supports downloading videos from many websites, from popular ones like YouTube and Facebook to less known ones like Youku. HD and HQ videos can also be downloaded. Another nice aspect of this tool is the fact that it includes a simple yet handy video player.
YTD Video Downloader also allows converting videos to common formats like MP4, MOV or AVI. It can also extract the sound track from video files and save it to audio files such as MP3.
Unfortunately, batch processing multiple downloads at once is possible only with the Pro version. Moreover, the interface cannot be resized or customized. Anyway, these are minor downsides that can be easily ignored. Overall, YTD Video Downloader is a handy YouTube downloader and converter that works fine, is fast and easy-to-use and comes with an affordable price.
