As most video sites do not provide direct links to videos, you will need a special downloader to be able to grab them. In addition, although FLV has become the most widely used video format on the Internet, it is not supported by all that many devices and players. That is why it is sometimes necessary to convert FLV files to other formats. YTD Video Downloader and Converter offers to download and convert Internet videos. As there are many applications capable of performing these functions, let us first cover this program’s advantages or disadvantages.

This program’s interface has a modern appearance with a nice combination of soft colors. The use of different tabs to separate its functions seems to be a good solution to avoid overcrowding the screen with unrelated options.

Just as you enter the URL of the desired video page, YTD Video Downloader and Converter will track the real video URL. It can also detect if the video is available in different qualities and let you choose accordingly. Unfortunately, this mechanism works only by copying and pasting the URL from a web browser as the application does not offer any kind of integration in this respect.

If you buy the complete version, you will be able to download and convert a given video in a single session. However, the free version does let you convert already downloaded files. The procedure is as simple as selecting the input file, a target format and the conversion quality. Although several popular formats are supported, some others are not available. As an additional asset, there is a simple video player with standard playback buttons.

In general, YTD Video Downloader and Converter does its job well, as it supports lots of video sites. However, it does not integrate with browsers, which is a shame. Just for you to know, YTD Video Downloader looks too similar to FLV Downloader (except for the interface colors) and they are developed by the same company, which means that you will only need to check one of them to see if it works for you.
