Apowersoft YouTube Downloader can help download and convert online video. It supports multiple popular video-sharing web sites. The program has a nice and intuitive tabbed interface, in which a navigation pane eases the process of switching between the two main functions of downloading and converting.
In order to start a new download, you should provide the program with the URL of the page containing the video. Moreover, you should choose the site you wish to download it from and the desired quality. Then, the program will take care of extracting the actual video URL. Another way to create a new download job is by picking one of the recommended videos. Unluckily, the program does not integrate with browsers to monitor downloadable contents.
After downloading the videos, you can proceed to convert them to the desired format. The tool supports both video and audio formats as output. Various output profiles are available to help you play Internet video on your mobile gadget. Most of these presets are identified by the names of the supporting devices. Although they can be customized to meet your exact needs, you cannot create new profiles. Besides converting to other formats, the application can also transfer selected videos to your iTunes library. As an extra feature, this downloader comes with a media player you can use to preview downloaded and imported files.
All in all, Apowersoft YouTube Downloader can help you download video in a friendly manner. Probably its most outstanding feature is the excellent design of its graphic user interface. However, I find the method of starting downloads by copying and pasting URLs bothersome.
