The Freemake Video Downloader is an easy to use utility that captures streaming videos from popular tube sites. They offer a great menu with large buttons that makes managing files easy, and installation is very simple. It works on a number of browsers and downloads can be performed in the background. This allows users to work or play on their computer as files are saved to their hard drive.
They offer a very easy to use interface and even provide thumbnail previews for selected video files. Perfect for light and general surfing and downloading, this small and powerful utility gets the job done with ease.
There are a few limitations with this software, and better downloading utilities are available online today. They do not include a built-in video player and users need to manually copy and paste download links into the program before downloads will begin. These are relatively minor inconveniences, but it does make for a hard sell when comparing to other freeware tools.
This downloader has been recently updated and now supports a greater number of video sites. They also have an easy to use file conversion tool that enables users to save downloaded video and audio clips in different formats.
Anyone who is interested in an easy to use and basic downloading utility will not be disappointed, and it is simple enough for even the most novice users to install and enjoy. It would be perfect if they offered an automated link capturing platform, but this is something that is not all that distracting or difficult to overcome.
Whether downloading from Youtube or one of many other video sites, this easy to use tool can make saving your favorite video files a snap. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a bare bones utility that gets the job done.
