Downloading streaming videos is no longer as complicated as it used to be. Multiple applications have been developed to help us in this task. One of them is YTD Video Downloader. This tool’s interface is not very different from those of other similar programs and neither are its features. It’s absolutely easy to install and demands low system resources. Besides, it’s available in various languages.
The program has a very intuitive interface, which is appropriate for all kinds of users. To initiate a download job, all you need to do is enter the video page URL, and the program can do the rest for you. Fortunately, many different video-streaming sites are supported. Besides, you can choose any of the available qualities. Sadly, downloading video in batches is available only in the paid version. Similarly, if you pay for the program’s Pro license, you can benefit from on-the-fly conversion of the downloaded clip to another format.
The application can also be used as a video converter, independently of the clip’s origin, which means that you can use it to convert any video that you store on your disks. It’s good that most formats are available as both source and output. Again, simultaneous conversion of various files depends on your paying the program’s fees. Various minor editing changes and adjustments are possible. For instance, you can change a clip’s sound volume or extract a fragment from it.
The downloader allows managing and monitoring jobs. Although I couldn’t test this in the free version, the developer claims it can accelerate downloads up to four times the regular speed. It’s a blessing that you don’t need to start broken download tasks from the beginning because automatic resuming is supported, too. Finally, when the films have already been transferred to your hard disk, you can use the built-in video viewer to check them.
All in all, YTD Video Downloader has the main advantage of being easy to use and integrating various features in a single application. However, I didn’t like that I have to pay to access its most advanced characteristics, mostly, when I can do the same at no cost.
