ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader Converter is a powerful yet easy-to-use video downloader which works with YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Flickr, Metacafe and many other popular sites.
To get started, search for a movie or playlist in your regular browser, then drag or drop it (or copy and paste the link) into ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader Converter. It'll collect information on the clip - title, available file formats, resolutions and so on - and display them in the download list.
You then have the option to change the quality settings, set a download folder, or opt to convert the program to a format of your choice (there are various iPhone, iPad, iPod, MP3 and other profiles on offer). And with a click ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader Converter will go to work, downloading and converting up to 15 files at the same time. If you need more, a $12.99 add-on package removes the limitation and includes some other extras.
If you're used to YouTube downloaders which have their own search tools, ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader's more hands-off approach may seem a little annoying. And certainly it would benefit from a little more browser integration, perhaps automatically detecting when you copy and paste a video URL to the clipboard.
The program is otherwise easy to use, though, and did manage to correctly detect all the available versions of our test videos (something which still defeats quite a few YouTube downloaders).
Please note, the program attempts to install additional software during the setup process. Read every installation step carefully (including the final one, where there's an "Install Complitly" checkbox) to make sure you understand what it's going to do.
