The Internet is home to info and media of all kinds. Working with video files might have you looking for bits of videos to include in your projects. With the help of specialized applications like UDownloads you can easily get ahold of videos of interest from one of the most accessed media website.
Lightweight, easy to use and fast
The application comes equipped with all available features in a compact window. Using incredibly little system resources and taking up roughly about 500 Kb of space on your hard disk drive, the only thing you need to worry about is where to store the newly downloaded files.
Speed only depends on your Internet connection type. To get ahold of the desired video, you only need to provide the URL and at the press of a button you are seconds away from the result.
Good but far from being a pro
Even though it puts an extremely easy to use interface at your disposal and fetches you the video as fast as possible, it manages to also come equipped with several flaws.
One of the biggest disappointments is that you are only able to get the desired video in WebM, MP4, FLV and 3GP, with no possibility to convert to other formats or at least include MP3 in the list of supported types.
Furthermore, there is no integrated option that allows you to set a default destination folder. This has to be specified each time the “Download” button is pressed, and can be a pain when you need a lot of videos.
To end with
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that UDownloads is a practical application to use for getting ahold of desired videos from the Internet due to its simplicity. It lacks several advanced features which would have made it a pro, but in case you need the job done fast, give this application a try.
