The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.4
As it can be easily deduced from its name, YouTube Downloader Suite is a software tool that allows you to download videos from YouTube and keep local copies of them. However, this program offers you much more than simple online video downloading.
It also allows you to convert downloaded videos into multiple formats, and includes some helpful video editing functions too.
Among other interesting features, this program not only downloads videos from YouTube, but also from other famous video-sharing websites such as Dailymotion, Vimeo, Metacafe, etc. Besides, this tool includes its own online video search engine, so that you don't even need to open your Web browser to start downloading videos. Whenever you decide to download a video, you can select the source format, the quality, and the website you want to download the video from. Batch download is another helpful feature supported by this program, so that you can download more than one video at once.
As for the built-in video converter, it includes a large number of presets for you to choose from and make your videos compatible with iPod, iPad, iPhone, DVD, Android, PSP, and other devices. General video formats like AVI, WMV, and MP4 are also supported. You can even use this tool to extract the audio from your favorite online videos. Anyway, whichever target format you select, you can always tweak its internal parameters to fit your specific needs. The program also includes its own video editor, which allows you to trim, crop, and add effects and subtitles to your downloaded videos. Finally, you can use the program’s video player to verify the results of your video download, conversion, and edition processes.
The program offers an intuitive interface divided into four easily-identifiable sections. It doesn't require any special skills to download and convert videos from YouTube or similar websites using YouTube Downloader Suite. Unfortunately, you can only test the program for three days before having to buy a license to continue using it.
