Xilisoft YouTube Video Converter is a video downloader and converter. It works with YouTube.com and it allows you to download videos directly from the site and convert them into a variety of video and audio formats. Some of the supported output formats are: MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, MOV, 3GP, DivX, MP3, and WAV.
The application is basically a web browser. You go to YouTube on it and select the video that you want to download, then select the format you want to convert it to and the app takes care of the rest. You can add as many videos as you want to the download queue and not all of them have to be converted into the same format. One good thing about this downloader, is that it lets you choose which version of the video you want to download. This is great for when you want to download the 720p version of a YouTube video.
In my testing, browsing YouTube felt very smooth and when I decided to download and convert a video, the process was quick and painless. I can really say that this app works great. However, I do think that it is a bit expensive for what it does, especially when you compare it with other similar tools.
- It works well
