YTD Video Downloader Pro is a feature-rich video grabbing utility. The program downloads media clips from popular online video sharing and hosting websites, then it converts the video into other formats. Youtube, Daily Motion, Vimeo, as well as many others, the software easily captures clips from over 50 different media hosting platforms. Indeed, pulling media from popular or obscure websites, YTD Video Downloader Pro excels as a simple-to-run media capturing companion.

Several different purchasing tiers pop up when a User first attempts to download the software. There's the free version, then there's the Pro edition, which adds more media downloading and converting functionality. If the free version is installed, the word "Basic" is printed above the program title after the user interface opens. Video files are copied and pasted, but there are limitations in effect when opting for the Non-Pro edition. After a Windows computer copies a file, the system clipboard triggers the paste action. Switching up to the paid version, there are more options to convert the grabbed video so that it'll play on a mobile device. On other media grabbers, this experience is harder to manage. There are video settings and formats to alter, then there's the compression rate to control, too. Done wrong, the output won't work on a chosen cell phone or tablet. Upon switching to YTD, that overly complicated way of doing things goes out the window. Instead of changing a bewildering array of video settings, use YTD Video Downloader's device presets to automatically select an iPod, iPad, or Android device.

Captured in full 1080p, if available, video clips download to a user-selected folder. Alternatively, the desired resolution can be selected in the Activity Window. Again, the Basic edition downloads and converts individual files, but the Pro version does more. Copy and paste a bunch of YouTube clips and have them all automatically converted. Enjoy faster file downloads with YTD Video Downloader Pro and remember that entire playlists can be grabbed as well. Better yet, if the internet connection used by a video grabbing enthusiast is kind of shaky, know that the Pro edition of this little program can resume a broken download. That's a real boon for those who've seen a download fail when it was close to being finished. Instead of biting a sore lip in frustration when a download has to start all over again, that feeling fades because the video grab picks up from exactly where it broke down. Please note, YTD Video Downloader should not be used to grab copyrighted clips.
