GetGo YouTube Downloader 1.8.0.1577

A simple video downloader and converter that provides support for a variety of output formats, compatible with most playback devices
GetGo YouTube Downloader is an application with a name that speaks for itself. With its help, you can enrich your multimedia collection by quickly and easily downloading online videos.

Aside from being extremely easy to use, another of its advantages is related to the range of output formats that it supports. During the download process, the videos can be converted to MP4 (compatible with iPhones, iPods, PSP), AVI, WMV, FLV, WebM. Furthermore, if it's just the song or the soundtrack you are looking for, you can configure the application to extract the audio and save it locally in MP3 format.

Designed with simplicity in mind, the main interface comprises all the options you need in a single window. Here, you can enter the URL of the input video, select the output saving location on your hard drive, choose the output type from a drop-down list and monitor the download progress.

Unfortunately, batch operations are not supported and thus, download queues cannot be created. Although it might be somewhat inconvenient, the application only allows grabbing one video at a time.

As far as the download speed is concerned, GetGo YouTube Downloader manages to provide impressing URL scanning times and saving a file on your computer doesn't take more than a few seconds.

However, for larger videos, you can configure it to notify you when the process is finished by playing a sound and displaying a pop-up alert window near the system tray. Optionally, the target download folder can be opened when the download is complete.

GetGo YouTube Downloader manages to offer decent download speeds and is capable of connecting to a proxy server to protect your privacy. Furthermore, it can immediately process videos and convert them to popular formats, playable on most devices.
