A simple-to-use tool that comes packed with limited features for helping you download videos from YouTube, while running on low system resources

editor's review




Simple Video Downloader is a lightweight software application designed with a single goal in mind: to help users download videos from YouTube.

It sports a clean and simplistic layout that allows you to perform most operations with just a few clicks.

Simple Video Downloader gives you the possibility to grab clips from YouTube by pasting the URL in a dedicated pane.

What’s more, the program is able to provide basic video details, such as the name of band or artist, song title, and images.

By default, the utility automatically saves the downloaded items on your desktop, so you cannot manually pick the saving directory.

The lack of configurable settings can be good new only for rookies, as they can learn to set up the dedicated parameters with minimum effort.

However, professional users may find it pretty inconvenient to work with a tool that doesn’t come packed with advanced features, such as Clipboard monitoring options, batch processing, previewing mode, and video quality selection (e.g. high, low, medium), just to name a few suggestions.

During our testing we have noticed that Simple Video Downloader needs up to several minutes to carry out the downloading task. As it would be expected from such as small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

To sum things up, Simple Video Downloader offers a simple software solution when it comes to helping you download videos from YouTube. It can be easily configured and installed by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
