YT Downloader (formerly known as TubeDownload Classic) has become one of the most efficient YouTube video downloaders and converters on the market. With an improved download speed, and support for all the video codecs and levels of quality currently available in YouTube, this app has kept the same simple interface and efficiency that made its former program name popular among YouTube users.

Its one-window main interface includes all the fields you need to select a YouTube video, download it, and convert it to your preferred format on the fly. You can copy and paste the file’s URL in the box provided or drag and drop that same URL to the program’s main window to start the download process. All you need to do then is select your preferred quality among the ones available in YouTube for that specific video, the format you want to convert it into (when necessary), and the location where you want the program to save your video. A progress bar at the bottom of the main window will keep you informed about the downloading and conversion processes.

Both the codec used and the preset selected can be easily customized to fit your requirements. All common video and audio formats are supported, and you can tell the program to extract the audio stream of your favorite videos on the fly and convert it to the codec of your choice.

Though limited to one download at a time, and without the possibility of resuming any broken or failed download, YT Downloader offers you a high level of flexibility and – best of all – up to 500% faster downloads than many similar tools. You can now download up to 4K high-definition videos in a breeze, and enjoy them and their soundtracks in whatever format required by your portable devices or PC media players.
