Fast Video Downloader is a program that allows users to download videos from popular video sites and store them locally. The free trial version of this program provides users with many tools and options.

A wonderful program, particularly because it's not tied to a single video sharing site like many other similar programs, Fast Video Download has an impressive list of compatible sites. The list includes powerhouse sites like YouTube, Metacafe, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and more! This program is especially helpful to users who have metered or unstable connections and want to revisit videos. This makes sharing videos offline very easy.

Fast Video Downloader has more than a few tricks up its sleeves. In addition to being a great downloader overall, it also has the ability to download files in batches. It can handle files in standard or in HD and has an on-board search feature that allows users to search for videos across multiple sites. Once the videos have been downloaded, this program can also change formats. Unfortunately, this incredibly useful feature is only available in the full paid version.

When it comes to simplicity, Fast Video Downloader ranks in the upper echelon. In order to begin the process, users need only to directly copy a video's URL from a variety of compatible websites. They can even search from the video hub within the software directly. Once a desired video has been found, it is as easy as selecting the video and clicking download; everything else is handled by the program. It does not get much easier than that!

While the program is remarkably functional and useful for a variety of circumstances, there is one; it is not exactly beautiful. What it lacks in looks, however, it more than makes up for in terms of ease of navigation. It's a program that was designed with the user in mind. It is important to remember that some features may be locked behind a pay gate, but that is standard issue for free software. Users who decide to make the leap will enjoy access to more site compatibility, custom video resolutions, and advanced download schedules. Users of the free version still have access to a majority of the features that make Fast Video Downloader the premiere offline video downloading software. This program is a great when it comes to easily organizing videos, skipping annoying ads, and avoiding mobile data charges that come from repeat views. There are many things that both versions of the program can do, and it's important to remember the old adage "getting what one pays for", because in this case, it could not be more true.

Users do not need a technical background thanks to Fast Video Downloader's self-explanatory use of labels and descriptions. This allows for fewer instances of user errors and a much faster download time.

PROS:

  • This program is easy to use.
  • There is a long list of compatible video sites.
  • It downloads videos, even HD, quickly.

CONS:

  • Some major features are behind a pay wall.
  • The design is too basic for some users.
