    "This program is the best for video editing, I use it all the time and <i'm always happy with the results. I find it easy to use, but maybe you do need to get used to it first. Still, it's not that hard"

      "If you use YouTube a lot you're definitely going to need a method to download videos and Easy Youtube Video Downloader is one of the best web browser extensions available to do it. I've used it with both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox to download videos off YouTube and I've never had an issue with it. It is easy to use and allows you to save all of your favorite videos in crystal clear high definition. My favorite aspect of this add-on is the fact that it creates an easy to find "Download" button on every single YouTube video. Downloading videos off YouTube cannot get any simpler than this!"

      "I really liked this site as a place that allows you to collaborate all of the videos you download. I often run out of storage on my devices and think this is a great spot to put everything together and not worry so much about storage on my devices."

      "I've been trying to find a good youtube downloader. While I'm not sure that offliberty would meet that mark, I have found it useful. I'm able to view online content without a permanent internet connection, which is handy. So, I'm not able to download quite yet but this is working for my needs in the interim."

      "Considering it's free, JDownloader is a very sufficient download manager. It's a bit more than a bare-bones package, and it offers sufficient options for users to customize any YouTube downloads. I'd recommend this for tech novices and experts alike. If you're looking for something with a ton of features, this may not be for you, but it's definitely an effective manager nonetheless."

      "Total Downloader is a solid solution for downloading YouTube videos from the web. It has a pleasant design and user interface, with intuitive controls. The app has a good amount of functions and features without being overly complex. I have used the app for several months, and am satisfied with its performance. There are probably other similar apps out there, but this is one of the better ones I have used."

      "This may have been a good way to download videos from YouTube at one time, but it's been pulled from the Play Store and is now only accessible from third-party APK archives. Beware of downloading from these, as sometimes the APKs are injected with malware. I would look for another solution. There are a lot of web sites which do the same thing and don't require any kind of app to be installed."

      "This program partially solved my problem with finding a YouTube downloader that meets all my needs. I was trying it to see if it could replace my existing extension. In some ways, I prefer the newer solution, and in some ways, I prefer the older one - this program is easier to use and has a better interface than what I was using before, but some of its features cannot be used in the free version, whereas I have found other free programs that can do some of these things."

      "I was looking for a good Youtube downloader but a lot of them had limited options or had a lot of extra steps or bloat to use. With Freemake Video Downloader, I can download the video in several different formats and use it across multiple devices with ease! It was a breeze downloading those toddler videos for my son so he can watch it on my old phone!"

      "I do not think this would stop Youtube downloaders at all. Just encourage them. This site also encourages downloading protected content\videos from other protected sites. This is not a good solution at all, just the opposite."

      "This is a killer app. Love the fact that all I have to do is bring up the app, and then search for the video I want to download. It makes it really simple to do so. Make sure you have plenty of memory though, that's the only draw back is that this only for mobile, which has severe memory limitations."

      "Ever watched a YouTube video and wanted to save it? If so, then you need a downloader. I have tried various ones with various results - some good, others not so much. The lastest I've tried is iTube Studio downloader. I'm very pleased with its ease of use and overall downloading capabilities. The bonus that this downloader has that some others don't is that it actually works with other sites, so you don't have to mess with different programs for each one! It really is a great downloader you should check out if you're looking for a good one among many out there."

      "I'm not sure if this is the best YouTube downloader. I need to download videos occasionally as I have an older lower cost computer and it is hard to get it running at normal speeds all the time. Reading the site for this though makes me think it might be a scam and a malware program. I don't know if I would feel safe in downloading it to my computer. I may stick to my old web based favorites."

All you have to do is to locate the video you want to save, then open up 9xbuddy.com and paste the URL into the box at the top of the webpage. You can also locate the URL, then add "9x" after "www." and before the name of the website. Bookmark this place, because you will want to use it somewhere in the future!"

      "Need an app to convert videos from YouTube to MPEG4 or MP3? This app ClipGrab is a simple tool to let you convert videos for later playback on a different medium. The one thing is does appear to need is a batch download as I am a frequent user of different video mixes. This is planned and will probably be out in an update."

MacX YouTube Downloader is such a software. What's better, it can also save videos from Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion and 300+ sites."
