Free Youtube Downloader Tool is actually a video download tool with conversion and audio extraction capabilities. It has been designed to help you transfer downloaded online videos to your favorite portable devices, including various models of iPod, iPad, and iPhone, mobile phones, and the most widely-used game consoles. Besides, it is capable of extracting the audio stream of the downloaded video and save it as an MP3 file.
It may not boast the most attractive and flexible interface, but its functionality is in line with similar free products with a nicer and more modern look and feel. Once you have pasted a valid YouTube URL in the box provided, the program will analyze the online video the Web address points at and will show you useful information about its format, the video resolution and the overall video quality. These can be changed easily by selecting any one of the profiles provided in the Video Type drop-down list. If the native format of the online video does not fit the requirements of your console, mobile phone, or portable device, you can always tell the program to convert it into one of the various device-oriented conversion settings available. These include specific settings for iPad, iPod, iPhone, Playstation, XBOX360, PSP, Android smart phones or Windows-powered tablets. The last profile in the list refers to MP3 audio, and it will allow you to extract the soundtrack of any downloaded video for you to listen to it in any device with MP3 support.
Its lack of batch conversion capabilities is probably the most noticeable difference between this simple tool and its competitors. However, if you only occasionally download videos from YouTube, Free Youtube Downloader Tool will provide you with all the functionality you need to grab and convert your favorite videos.
