YouTube Video Ripper can help you download video from YouTube, which is probably the most popular video site. The application has an intuitive interface showing specific instructions on how to proceed. It allows various methods to start new downloads. Thus, you can drag and drop an URL to the drag zone (an always-on-top icon). In addition, the program can monitor the clipboard, so when you copy a YouTube URL, it automatically offers to create a download task for you. Fortunately, this method also allows you to start various downloads in a single operation. Such is the case when you provide a URL pointing to a results page or channel.
The application supports executing multiple download tasks at the same time and they can be paused and resumed when it is necessary. You can pick one of the available video qualities, including high definition. As a second step, the program allows you to choose a conversion profile, so that the downloaded movie can be automatically converted to a format supported by a given device. Unluckily, the range of output formats is limited and the profiles are not very customizable. Finally, there is a built-in portable player to preview the resulting clips.
In general, YouTube Video Ripper seems to work just fine. Differently from many other YouTube video savers, this one can resume downloads with no difficulty. Moreover, it downloads movies quite fast, because it can create up to four threads for each file.
