Downloading from YouTube has become incredibly popular, and there's bunches of software out there to prove it. There are so many with such different features, however, that it can be hard to pick the best.
Here's our top 5 YouTube downloaders:
YouTube Downloader - The best, in my opinion. You can search YouTube from the interface or simply enter a URL and it will download the video in .FLV directly to your desktop.
YouTuber - Uses a browser style interface to download videos and also enables you to preview them. It's a basic tool that does its job very well.
YouTube RT for Windows 8 - If you use Windows 8, this is the winner by a mile. It looks good, downloads well, and plays back awesomely. It's also packed with handy little features and tools.
YouTube Downloader HD - If you're after quality videos, then you should check out a downloader that specializes in HD videos. It also downloads normal definition videos, but if you're looking for more quality, you'll have this option too.
All Video Downloader - Probably the most comprehensive of them all. Allows you to download in multiple formats and goes beyond YouTube including Dailymotion, Vimeo, PureVid, Metacafe and more.
