User Reviews

  • please add a bug report rather than a review if ytd2 does not what you want. Google changes things from time to time ... this has nothing to do with ytd2

  • Does not download any youtube video's. Youtube link entered but nothing downloads!

  • YTD2 is a lightweight top performing application - Zero install options or adds. There are no restrictions. Downloaded vid's instantly. The others suggest the build needs a coat of paint and I agree but it works 100% as is. Thanks guys, good job.

  • I prefer to use YouTube by Click It's easier to use Supports many video site and youtube playlists Google search for "YouTube by Click" thats the first result

  • Excellent youtube downloader I have experienced so far.
