Watching videos online on YouTube can be a lot of fun, but at times, playlists and user channels can have such massive collections that it may not be practically possible to watch all of them online, and so, downloading those to your local storage might seem more attractive. I came across this situation once, where I wanted to download all videos from a certain user for offline viewing and and prevention of repeated streaming. This is when I came across a handy application, Free YouTube Download.
This application allows you to download single videos as well as whole collections, such as complete playlists, users’ channels, personal playlists, videos from movies, music category and more. Free YouTube Download combines simplicity of usage as well as advanced downloading features which you can set as you like. Videos can be downloaded in original YouTube quality, or converted to AVI, MP4, WMV.
The application supports multistream downloading. Edit
option allows you to customize the output name easily. In addition to that, you can also save and load links from external text files, save download history and import videos to iTunes automatically. Free YouTube Download allows you to download videos in Original YouTube
quality or convert them to AVI, MP4
. Quality can also be changed from the dropdown list.
Once a video is ready for download, just click the Play
button to start grabbing. A progress bar and percentage indicator helps you keep track of the time left.
This application comes with extensive options such as Performance, General, Advanced, Output
The General category allows you to set your desired video quality, add browser context menu integration and auto launch at windows startup. In addition to that, you can add output files to new iTunes playlist and Save
or Clear history,
depending on your preference. Advanced
category offers users with further options, such as Auto-paste URL’s from Clipboard
, Automatic download, Get info for every video in the playlist
and so on. With the Output
category, you can Add numbering for downloads, Include original YouTube title, Include upload date
and certain other parameters.
This application is certainly an easy solution to grabbing multiple videos from a YouTube channel or playlist for later, offline viewing. Should you own a portable media device, combined with Free YouTube Download’s iTunes integration, you may have a perfect companion for all your video needs on the go. Just enter the URL of a video, channel or playlist, select your preferred format and let Free YouTube Download do the work. Free YouTube Download supports Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista and Windows 7, provided you have .NET Framework 2 or higher installed.
