editor's review




Fast YouTube Downloader is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you download online videos from YouTube and store them on the disk for offline viewing. It can be deployed on Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8.

Comes in a portable edition

This is a portable program which makes it an ideal candidate for being stored on USB flash drives or other devices. You can gain access to its features by simply opening the executable file because you do not have to go through an installation process.

In addition, you may run it without being an administrator. The tool does not leave entries on the target PC so you can get rid of it using a quick deletion task.

Simple layout

The GUI looks straightforward and embeds only a few configuration settings which are easy to decode. Although you cannot appeal to a help manual, you can tweak the video downloading options on your own because they are intuitive.

Video downloading capabilities

Fast YouTube Downloader is able to automatically monitor your clipboard for URLs. You just need to copy a target YouTube URL to the clipboard and perform a single click on the main window of the program in order to paste it.

The application gives you the possibility to export the videos to FLV, WebM, MP4, or 3GP file format to a custom location on your computer. We have tested Fast YouTube Downloader on Windows 8.1 Pro and come across several bugs. It failed repeatedly to download videos due to several errors.

Final words

All things considered, Fast YouTube Downloader needs functionality improvements before it can be called a reliable and efficient YouTube video downloader.
