4Media Download YouTube Video is a customizable program to download videos from YouTube.
The application has a user-friendly interface and is very easy to use.
You can search for videos right from the program's main window, a fully-functional browser in which the YouTube site with all the content is displayed. You will be able to work in the program like in a usual browser, there is a browser control bar that will allow you to go back or forward to the page, stop the search, refresh the page, download a chosen video file, or simply go to the YouTube homepage. When you have chosen a video file just click on the download button in the control bar, and the file will be downloaded to the folder you have specified. The destination folder may be specified either at the bottom of the program's main window or through the settings of the program. The only drawback of this way of downloading videos is that you will be able to download only one file at a time.
Another way of downloading videos is to copy the URL of the file you want to download to the program's window and choose to download. Also there is a possibility to download video files right form the Internet Explorer browser via the right-click option. In these two ways also only one file at a time may be downloaded.
As for me, the most convenient way to download videos is to use the program's YouTube video browser. Using which you will be able to search for videos by key words or by category, and either download one video file or all the files shown on the page (20).
The program's control bar allows you to stop the download of a file/ all files, restart download, and remove selected items. Also there is the pause button, which, unfortunately, never worked for me.
The downloaded files will be displayed on the program's window, you will be allowed to rename or remove them. Also the program allows you to set the way the videos are displayed: thumbnails or a list.
All in all, 4Media Download YouTube Video is a nice effective application. Moreover, it is completely free.
