Download YTD Video Downloader and use it to get online videos fast (and from lots of other places, not just YouTube), then convert them and play them on your favourite device.
Although the original name for the software (YouTube Downloader) suggests that YTD is designed to work only with YouTube, it actually works with all kinds of video portals.
These include heavyweights such as Bing Video, Facebook, DailyMotion, Ustream, Vimeo and Yahoo Video, not to mention a cluster of lesser-known sites. There’s a full list over on the developer’s website.
Video downloaders like YTD have become popular because they enable you to grab a FLV or MP4 video, download it and re-encode it into something that you can play easily on your PC, iPod, mobile phone or games console.
It’s a great way to download a video so you can watch it later, rather than streaming it over your Internet connection. This offline viewing is ideal for mobile devices, where you pay for every byte you send and receive.
A few years ago, downloading and converting videos was a complicated and laborious process. YTD combats this with a simple interface and almost effortless ease-of-use.
You simply copy the URL of the video that you’d like to download, paste it into the YTD download, pick a conversion option and it takes care of everything.
Thanks to an integrated video converter, YTD Video Downloader converts the video into the right format straight away. You can even download high definition (1080p) video so you get the best quality results. And with an integrated video player, YTD also lets you categorise, sort and build playlists from all your favorite videos.
If you like this free YTD download, there’s a YTD Pro version available that adds several extra options - the ability to select and download multiple videos simultaneously, one-click multiple file conversion and free email support (just in case you have problems and the extensive documentation can’t help).
