    "Beware the reviews"

    January 23, 2014  |   By MadCowOnCrack

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.7.2

    Pros

    Not yet tried

    Cons

    Not yet tried

    Summary

    A cursory glance at reviews for other video downloads on Cnet shows that some of the bad-mouth ones are CUT and PASTE between one article and another. As I don't trust overly favorable 5 star gushes of "it's the work of god" they too are questionable (sorry but I'm not into surveying a site for examples; just know it's not your imagination if you think articles look strangely similar).
    I thought that it would be relatively easy to have some program or other filter these - matching cut and pasting between reviews. It is rather worrying that this site doesn't have this - as it makes the comments relatively worthless - and it is a review site - isn't it?

    "installs unwanted program"

    January 18, 2014  |   By horse11111111

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.7.2

    Pros

    Downloaded a youTube video successfully.

    Cons

    Installing YTD Video Downloader also installed an unwanted program (PUP) that kept changing my browser search engine to Yahoo. Used Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove the PUP.
    YTD Video Downloader worked well but I deleted it because I don't trust YTD anymore.

    "Surreptitiously installs unwanted programs"

    January 18, 2014  |   By terrorist96

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.7.2

    Pros

    Downloads videos.

    Cons

    It surreptitiously installs a PUP (potentially unwanted program).
    I have been in contact with the developers and they claim that nothing of the sort is installed if you opt out of the 3rd party offers during installation. However, I have tested it multiple times, each time opting out and then running a scan with MBAM and each time, the same PUP is found.
    They refuse to acknowledge this so this is my warning to people.
    The program works great and I still use it, but after installing it, be sure to run a scan with MBAM and remove the PUP.

    "Does not download playlists anymore"

    January 16, 2014  |   By Tia-Lewise

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.7.2

    Pros

    Very fast method of downloading videos to then convert into whatever you wish; has proved highly efficient for me in the past to access not so easily accessible music such as Japanese or game tracks.

    Cons

    I have always been able to download full playlists in the past but now if I try, I just get two "video," pop up in the download section, saying they have immediately failed. This is a bit of an annoyance as I'm lazy and don't want to have to download all the videos individually.

    Summary

    Always found a great use for this software, shame it seems to have cocked up now.

    For the guys saying it installs spyware, this is why you choose to DECLINE all the things it asks you to install.

    "Beware: The Download Contains Spyware"

    January 13, 2014  |   By cathead77

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.7.2

    Pros

    There are no pros to a download that infects your computer.

    Cons

    This download put spyware in my PC and I had to do a system restore. So far I have not seen the pesky pop-up informing me that my Chrome video player needed updating.

    Summary

    It's not worth the spyware.

    "Excellent YouTube video downloader."

    January 13, 2014  |   By AndesDave

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.7.2

    Pros

    It just works! Like Butler says above, one can even lose the connection and it will resume downloading when the signal is reaquired. We have a low bandwidth signal here and it takes a while, but files download w/o a problem. I highly recommend this version on an old software program to do just what it says it will do: download YouTube videos. It supposedly works on other sites/files but I haven't done that yet.

    Cons

    Limited functionality. For example, you only get one flavor of file format with the free version, which is what I have: mp4. This is no problem because you can later convert it using some other program, which most people already possess anyway. And if you want to do it all with this program you can upgrade.
    Unwanted add-on programs: unless you actually want their spy programs, do as Butler suggests and opt out of the Spigot programs when you install it.

    Summary

    Try it; you will like it.
