Why select a desktop Free YouTube Download over an online app: a comparative analysis

2 to 6 times higher download speed

10 sec vs 1 min for a four-minute YouTube video and 12 min vs 30 min for a heavy 8K short-film when downloading the same links with DVDVideoSoft and online video downloaders.

Pure user interface

Free YouTube Download has a clear and user-friendly interface. There are no third-party pop-ups or redirects neither during the installation nor during its use. While online video downloaders have plenty of them.

Variety of features

Online YouTube downloaders save single links and only a few of them support playlist download. The variety of features a desktop downloader offers is much bigger: from playlist and channel download to video title and folder set up.

Full HD and Full Ultra HD support

Video download up to 720p is what any YouTube downloader supports. A higher resolution is usually out of the question. DVDVideoSoft video downloader detects all video versions YouTube offers, even if it’s the newest 8K stream.

VP9 video encoding support

The VP9 codec offers a much higher image quality than the AVC (aka Advanced Video Coding). Free YouTube Download automatically detects and saves this stream for high-resolution videos.
