  1. I have used the “Free Youtube Downloader” and I can verify that its great. To be honest, I havnt tried the others but will give them a shot as I am curious as to how they perform. Thanks for the great post :)

    • The same with me. I’ve been using Free YouTube Download for quite a long time and can say for sure that it is a good program, I recommend to try it from http://dvdvideosoft.com ;)

  2. Thanks for sharing.
    It is also recommended to try http://www.wantyoutube.com/
    It’s totally free and easy to use.
    Or you can just add “want” in youtube URL to get videos!
    For example, “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=…” change this URL to “http://www.wantyoutube.com/watch?v=…”

  3. i have tried many youtube video downloader. all of them have advantages and drawbacks.

    I have settled down to final video downloader because , although it is not the fastest, it has one feature that all the other don’t have: autoresume the download in case of connection failure.
