This program allows you to download videos from YouTube and convert them into several popular video file formats. The program was designed with both advanced users and beginners in mind. It includes about 12 presets that allow you to convert the downloaded videos into video files playable with portable devices, such as iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy, and Nokia Lumia. Two of those presets allow you to extract the audio stream from a YouTube video and save it as an audio file.
The program offers an elegant and dark-colored user interface, which basically consists of three sections – "Download", "Convert", and "Settings". The "Download" section allows you to paste the YouTube video's URL and start the download with a simple click. However, if you happen to be an advanced user, you can also click on an alternative button to select the download quality and format. The program supports batch video download/conversion, so that you can paste as many video URLs as you want to download simultaneously.
The "Convert" section of the program shows you the list of the videos ready for conversion and those already converted. Finally, the "Settings" section allows you to set the default download quality and format, the target folders, the maximum number of simultaneous downloads/conversions, and the default output format. You can also select a conversion mode – if you are a beginner, the best mode for you is probably "Automatic convert", but if you are an expert, you are more likely to select the "Ask target format everytime" option.
As I stated before, the program includes multiple presets to make your downloaded videos compatible with many portable devices. However, if you are an advanced user or have special conversion needs, you can always customize the output video format, the output audio and video codecs, the video resolution, and the audio and video bit rates.
Summing up, ImTOO YouTube Video Converter provides you with a simple and easy way to download videos from YouTube and convert them into the format that is most convenient for you. The program is compatible with modern MS Windows versions, and can download even HD and 3D YouTube videos.
