Swifturn Free YouTube Downloader 7.2

It is one of the easiest programs to download videos from YouTube.com
 
7.2.8 (See all)

Swifturn Free YouTube Downloader is a video downloader and converter. It is a free tool that should let you download videos from YouTube and then convert them to a variety of formats, including FLV, MP4, AVI, DivX, XviD, and MOV, among others. I wrote "should" because at the moment of this review, the video downloader wasn't working. There are many free video downloaders that look identical to this one. And I would say that 90% of the ones I tested didn't work. The core app probably needs an update to work after the recent changes to YouTube.

The first screen that you see when you run this application shows two options. One is the video downloader and the other one is the video converter. If you want to try and download a video, all you have to do is paste the video URL and click on "next". If you want to convert a video file on your computer, all you have to do is add it and select an output format. The video converter worked well.

During installation, this app will try to install RelevantKnowledge. Make sure you uncheck the option.

All in all, this app is free, but the most important component, the video downloader, isn't working right now.
