Aneesoft Free YouTube Downloader is a simple application that offers a straightforward solution to download video files from the YouTube media sharing website. This way, you can playback your favorite movies and clips at your convenience while you are offline, with no dependence on the quality of your Internet connection.

The program's interface won't impress you too much – it is just plain, simple and easy to use. The tool allows you to access the YouTube website directly from the application, so you won't need to launch your browser to make the connection. Adding files to download is done easily, either by typing or pasting the desired video URLs, or by dropping the videos' thumbnails onto the program. Therefore, you can load as many files as you want and download them in batches. Prior to enabling the downloading process, you can select the output format by choosing among four popular file types only – namely, you can save the videos as MP4, WebM, FLV, and 3GP files. Unfortunately, the utility doesn't support high video resolutions. Regardless the original video quality, the tool lowers the resolution to 720p or 360p. Once the output settings are done, you can enable the downloading process. At the end, you receive a confirmation that the download is complete, so you can check for the results at the computer location you previously determined.

In short, this application is designed for home users in need of a simple YouTube video downloader. Without any advanced options, like saving lists of files to download at scheduled times and setting bandwidth limits, Aneesoft Free YouTube Downloader is designed to help you save online videos for offline playback.
