Pymaxe is an effective Windows utility that enables you to download media files from various online sources (such as YouTube) and save them to file. It recognizes multiple streams and allows you to choose the quality.
Rapid setup and user-friendly GUI
The installation procedure is fast and easy. As for the interface, Pymaxe adopts a regular window with a plain and simple structure, where you can get started by typing or pasting the media link targeted for downloading.
Quickly find and download media
Search results are immediately shown in the main frame and include the original media title and length. Content may be previewed in a built-in or default external media player, as well as opened in the web browser.
In order to download a clip, all you have to do is establish the output directory and file name. The entire task may take a while, depending on the dimension of the media file.
Configure program settings
Pymaxe automatically downloads covers and lyrics from the Internet which correspond to the respective media files, but these options may be deselected. It is also possible to change the default saving location, skip the downloading of HD quality videos where they are available, customize the plugins used by the tool, and so on.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any issues in our tests, since Pymaxe did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It has a good response time and quickly downloads media while remaining light on system resources. Unfortunately, it has not been updated for a while.
