Free YouTube Downloader lets you easily download videos from YouTube and convert them to viewable video formats for your desktop, tablet or other mobile device. It supports output to .avi, .wmv, .mov, .mp3, .mp4 and many more. If you want the ability to save and view YouTube videos while offline, this is the tool to use.

Free YouTube Downloader is simple. Grab the URL of a YouTube video, paste it into the Free YouTube Downloader, choose your output format and preferred video quality, then click Download. That's it. You can even save in high definition (720p or 1080p).

As for negatives, we would have liked to be able to name a file before downloading and saving it. But that's a minor inconvenience. Also, when installing, be sure to read carefully and uncheck items as needed. Otherwise you may find some unwanted installs, including a Search Toolbar and several partner shortcuts on your desktop.

Overall, Free YouTube Downloader is a highly recommended program that performs its singular function perfectly.

Free YouTube Downloader can be downloaded here.

Also, you are supposed to have an anti-virus installed on your computer that can detect the MALWARE before you decide to download it. Upgrade your anti-virus, get a better one, dude!

"It secretly loads Malware on your Computer"

The Good:It works (BUT!!!)

The Bad:It is a Trojan Horse program to load MALWARE on your computer

WARNING - INSIDIOUS PROGRAM! YouTube Downloader may work well as a downloader for YouTube (which it did) but it also loads MALWARE on your computer in the form of the "api my browser bar" which screws up your search engine results and even falsly reports a 'DNS error - Server cant be found' message. This Malware is also hard to remove. Google the words "api my browser bar " and see what you get. I cant believe that CNET has allowed this program to be included in its mix. What's the computer world coming to when you cant even trust CNET to ensure that programs on it are not dodgy The web is now just a jungle out there with almost no one you can trust. Shame on you CNET!!! (I'll be telling the world how you failed me).
