1.3 (See all)

YouTube Portable Downloader is a free video downloader. Disregard the name because the application isn't "portable", in the sense that you don't have to install it. With this one, you do have to install it to use it. A portable YouTube downloader is a great idea, but this app isn't it.

Using this app, you'll notice that it is a to-the-point video downloader. The main window consists of a single text field, where you can paste your video URL to start a new download. You can only download one video at a time, which might not be a big deal to users like me who only occasionally download videos. There are some options that you can change. For example, you can choose the format that you want to convert the file after it downloads. The supported formats are MOV, MPEG-4, H.264, H.263 3GP, WMV, AVI, and MP3. There is also a drop-down menu that lets you change the quality of the files.

In short, I really like this application, mainly because it is very simple and it works well. It is free and very light.
