Although I use only the free basic version untill now its still one of the best decisions I made concerning downloading from internet. The quality is superb and quite fast for a free program. We are talking seconds. Great program, would like to see what the pro version is capable of. Alas, "money is too tight to mention" Keep up the good work people!

The video/ audio converter is also a very nice tool. easy to use, not complicated, no need to learn professional programming nor mastery of computer & software processing, just basic understanding of the icons and simple instructions, and that's it.

Very good loader and convertor for a free application and I have not had any problems with it, better than the Real Player convertor and downloader application that comes with the free and paid version of Real Player.

I personally love YTD because it is easy and efficient to use any way I go. There is not another downloaded that is more simply than YTD. All the music and video I have on my phone including IPOD, I did it with the YTD, I would recommend this to anyone because there was never a single problem when using such application.
