The Free YouTube Download lets you download videos from YouTube in just a few seconds. It only takes one click and you can also convert the clips to a different format: you can save films as AVI, MP4 or FLV.
Free YouTube Download also supports videos in HD and HQ quality and parallel downloading of multiple files.
The freeware distinguishes itself from similar tools because it only takes one click to download all the videos of a playlist or of a YouTube channel. It's also possible to download YouTube videos that are embedded on another site.
You can also add new URLs during the download and set the video quality, save the download history and search downloaded videos by title. Plus, it's easier to determine the quality and type of a YouTube video. Version 3.x fixes problems that occur during the download process.
Verdict: Free YouTube Download enables you to save your favourite YouTube videos straight onto your computer. If you're only interested in downloading the audio track, we recommend the Free YouTube to MP3 Converter. As great as the features are, however, it's really annoying that the tool tries to change your browser settings during the set-up.
Via the advanced settings you can buy an one year Rocket subscription to load videos faster, but we think that's really not necessary. It's a shame that DVDVideosoft has decided to charge from version 6 of Free Studio. The integration of the subscription is a first step towards monetisation.
