Have tried many a different downloaders. None have come even close to YTD in either user friendly nor ease of use. Thanks to all for a wonderful product.

True to its purpose, and function- YTD downloader is absolutely what i just needed in downloading online videos from various online sites. It is faster that any other downloader that i have already used in the past - I will stick with YTD from now on as its excellent performance in fast downloads of online videos simultaneously is absolutely amazing and superb.

I think YTD Video Downloader is best as I can download, convert 3 videos simultaneously. And now with a newly developed feature I can continue my partially downloaded video files even after shutting down my computer.

I download videos on request and burn them to disc. Saves on our bandwidth. This program makes downloading Youtube videos for training as seamless as it can get. Plus the conversion utility makes it almost impossible to deliver what the end-user needs for whatever version of Windows or medial player they might be using. I used to do screen captures and record with a microphone, but this makes it so much easier. A great program to have in your batch of tools.

The sheer ease and convenience plus the elegant simplicity of using this program must put it at the top of them all - bar none!! Simply Magic. I can only say with some awe, that if this is sorcery then you have cast a very powerful spell and your subjects must now bow willingly and say "Hail,Hail to the Kings!!
