YouTube Music Downloader is a sort of download manager specifically created for searching, selecting, and downloading videos from YouTube.com, and transforming them into some of the most popular audio and - despite the program's name - video formats, including MP4, MP3, WMV, MOV, 3GP, AVI, MPG, WMA, WAV, ACC, and AMR.
The program shows a categorized list of music genres on the left panel, and a big central navigation panel with two tabs - "Music Browser", where the YouTube pages are displayed in a similar way as Internet browsers do, and "Downloading List", where all the downloading videos are listed, together with their respective progress indicator. When you click on any of the categories on the left panel, however, you are always directed to the same exact YouTube page, which is where you can actually choose your favorite genre. You also count on a text box where you can search for customized words, and you can even copy and paste a YouTube URL directly from any browser, too.
Unfortunately, this shareware version of the program presents serious drawbacks. On the one hand, only 20% to 50% of the original YouTube video is converted into the selected format, and, on the other hand, the resulting video is of a very low quality, since you cannot change the video settings before conversion. Both things are solved on the registered version.
- Built-in YouTube browser.
- Easy to use
