    "Good downloader"

    August 17, 2013  |   By jonrichco1

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.5

    Pros

    Easy to use. Normally autocompletes URL.

    Despite all the negative reviews, is actually really easy to tell Spigot not to install all of its crapware. You MUST click off the Agree to the terms of service box. This is counterintuitive, and a bit of a con, since mostly you have to accept terms for installations and click off the crapware installer separately. Here they are combined, but you absolutely don't have to click Accept. Also read CNets description which gives you useful information about avoiding crapware.

    To be safe, create a restore point or back up system image before installing.

    I checked after installation (look in Programs and Features) and it definitely did not install any crapware.

    For me, download speed has been good - 4 to 8 mbps for the free version, though Pro says speed is better.

    Cons

    None provided you avoid the crapware
    You may need to check the size of the download, and come back to a lower res if the file is too big. But you seem to have to start the download to do this. It would be good if the interface would tell you the download size before starting. A series of instruction files I have downloaded would default to 200 MB, but on resetting to lower res MP4 were about 25 MB but still good quality. However, version 4.5 seems to set these downloads to a reasonable size automatically, unlike 4.2

    "INFESTATION-WARE, PURE CRAP-GARBAGE! FALSLEY PROMOTED"

    August 12, 2013  |   By gwest100

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.4

    Pros

    NONE! Absolutely nothing whatsoever!

    Cons

    NO opt out offered for all the infestation, registry destroying, key-logging, silent 'phone the Motherland' activity. Bloated with "SLICK COUPONS" < Serious! REAL NAME of 1 of MANY! Slick will infest your main drive partition and any EXTERNAL HDD connected during install! I am four days in cleaning and am quitting to do a COMPLETE RE-INSTALL!

    Summary

    Thanks for NOTHING CNET! I have used CNEt EXCLUSIVELY since ONE and weathered it out when my friends all stopped due to the NUMEROUS FALSELY PROMOTED programs. I AM DONE! CNET, you have without question proved where it is that your CORPORATE MOTIVES are imbedded! IT AIN'T ON THE SIDE OF YOUR USERS!

    August 10, 2013  |   By shadowball123

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.4

    Pros

    After trying to install You Tube Downloader many times on my Windows 7 64bit Acer Emachines Laptop i gave up and gave this a shot,it didn't install any crapware on my laptop as i was careful during install on the user agreement,the last step on the setup i declined as in the user agreement is where the browser hijack is a bit sneeky but i managed to dodge it and its working great for me im able to download from daily motion and watch cartoon online website with this program and the videos come out fine

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    i will keep on using this program but please be careful during setup i declined the user agreement and YTD still installed on my laptop

    Updated on Aug 11, 2013

    and please make sure to decline any offers during cnet installer setup that way absolutely no crapware will be installed

    "Great if you want to ruin your browsers with malware"

    August 8, 2013  |   By txmxer

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.4

    Pros

    None that I know of. I removed it when I saw the crap it put on my computer.

    Cons

    Loaded with multiple malware programs. I refuse to use any software that loads up my system with malware to try it out. CNET is a disservice to the software community for allowing this type of program to be D/L'd from their site.

    Summary

    AVOID malware. Stay away from this program.

    "Downloader works, unavoidable adware/crapware installed"

    August 2, 2013  |   By Guerrero428

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.4

    Pros

    Downloader works well, some nice features.

    Cons

    Installed a variety of crapware to all browsers even though crapware install was declined during setup. Also reset my pinned tabs and search options in the process. Possibly security risk. Took more time than I wanted to spend cleaning browsers etc afterwards.

    Summary

    Probably better tools for this, especially considering the crapware installed regardless of declining install during setup. Less tech-savvy people will probably have more trouble removing crapware after use, may be worse for them.

    "CRAP, READ B4 U PROCEED"

    August 2, 2013  |   By nikonotron

    Version: YTD Video Downloader 4.4

    Pros

    none, no improvement

    Cons

    You can no longer download 'Best Available' video, you have to select from a list of media types. If you have a list of queued downloads and close the program, it tells you it will save the list and start downloading where you left off; version 4.3 did this okay, but 4.4 deleted all my queued downloads TWICE
