Review

Even though there are myriads of online videos available to everyone, there are times when it becomes more convenient to have them stored locally. This is when an application like Softorino YouTube Converter 2 comes in handy for downloading and converting even high-definition videos from multiple video-sharing sites. Likewise, it lets you download music and ringtones.

One of the main advantages of Softorino YouTube Converter 2 is wireless connectivity. In this respect, it is excellent that it can synchronize iTunes contents with iOS devices. For this purpose, it is important to go to Settings and enable wireless connections.

I really appreciate the possibility to search for videos in YouTube and the availability of a built-in YT browser, which appears as a retractable panel on the left. However, it also supports the old method of pasting video URLs, which you have to use if you intend to download video from other sites. Fortunately, the tool currently supports at least 60 media-sharing websites, including Discovery, Animal Planet, VEVO and Daily Motion, to name but a few.

Softorino YouTube Converter 2 can handle downloading media in batches, even whole playlists. Moreover, it can accelerate transfer speeds in up to 4X, which avoids waiting too long when it comes to heavy ultra HD videos with a high frame rate. Similarly, it is good that the tool allows customizing the names of the downloaded files, even before they are converted. However, I regret to say that it is not so good at grabbing the original file’s metadata. more
