hellow friends, in this tutorial i will show you guys how to download videos from youtube using a software called internet download manager
The best free software to download YouTube videos
By far the most practical way to download and convert YouTube videos is to get a software application to do the work for you. This method is superior to using a website because it's much faster, takes less manual work and allows for more options in terms of which format to save the video in. For instance, downloading videos as MP3 using a website would be very impractical since they need to be converted by the server first, which usually takes a very long time. Additionally, these websites need to recover the costs for their conversion servers and often display intrusive advertisements or require you to jump through several hoops by completing surveys for example.
The best product by far in this category is Free YouTube Downloader. It has a simple interface, but this works very well. With this software you can download any YouTube video and convert it to pretty much any format you might ever need, including Flash as FLV, XVid as AVI, H.264 as MOV, H.264 as MP4, H.263 as 3GP and audio only (MP3) or formats suitable for media players including the iPod, iPhone, iPad, Zune and PSP.
In terms of speed, this application was faster than any other software we tested. This is mainly attributed to the fact that the conversion takes place while the download is still in progress. With other software you have to wait for the download to finish completely and only then will the conversion be started. Performing these processes simultaneously can mean a difference in total required time of no less than 96%.
Regarding stability, we threw everything we had at this little application. We tried running 30 instances at the same time, providing various different input and output formats and we didn't experience a single problem. Compatibility also scores high because this product is available for both Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS.
Configurability wasn't spectacular, but all the basic options were present. In the options it's possible to specify the default download path and to configure wether or not you want to convert while the download is still in progress. If you have a very slow computer you might want to disable this feature. All-in-all, this downloader will do exactly what you need - nothing more, nothing less - and it will do so faster and with less effort than any of its competitors.
