As sharing video over the Internet becomes more frequent, there is also the increasing need of applications to download streaming contents. Aneesoft Free YouTube Downloader can retrieve videos from not only YouTube but other popular video-sharing sites, such as Blip, Bing Video, Break and Metacafe.
The application has a nice interface and it is so simple that even novices will not have any difficulty to use its functions. It supports downloading batches of video files by simply pasting the desired URLs. Then, the program will show snapshots of the added videos and check if there are various formats or qualities available for them. In that case, you will be allowed to pick the desired format and resolution.
All in all, Aneesoft YouTube Downloader does not provide any advantages over other similar products. First, it does not monitor the web pages you visit for downloadable video contents. Second, it cannot convert the downloaded files to other formats. Both of these features are supported by other applications. In fact, as a trend, many converters can download and convert Internet video besides standard files. Aneesoft YouTube Converter, a paid application by the same developer, is an example of this.
