yt saver video downloader review

Looking for an in-depth YT Saver Video Downloader review? You’re in luck, then. Below, I’ll explain the features, functionality, and user experience of this popular video-downloading tool from my first-hand experience.

From its ease of use to compatibility with various platforms, I’ll delve into all aspects of YT Saver to help you decide if it’s the right tool for you. Let’s get started!

Features

First things first! YT Saver Video Downloader is a desktop software for Windows and Mac that downloads videos and music from various platforms. You can also use the app on an Android smartphone or tablet.

YT Saver user interface

It comes with a simple user interface (UI). All the buttons and links do exactly as the text says.

Whether you’re a novice or an expert PC user, you’ll easily navigate it as there’s absolutely no learning curve for this application.

Now, let’s get to know its major features:

High-Speed Video Downloads

Unlike many other similar apps, YT Saver doesn’t limit the downloading speed.

With it, I’ve achieved a 9.40 MB/s video downloading speed. I downloaded a 4.1 GB video from YouTube in just 7 minutes. Also, the tool is able to download videos in 4K and 8K resolutions for the best offline viewing experience on large-screen TVs.

Playlist and Channel Download

YT Saver also allows you to download playlists or whole channels.

However, this feature is linked to the bulk YouTube video downloading function and isn’t available in the free trial. You must buy a monthly subscription or lifetime license to download whole playlists.

Paste URL

Other video downloaders often complicate the download process. Contrarily, YT Saver makes it really simple.

All you need to do is open the YouTube playlist or video you want to save. Then, copy its URL from the web browser’s address bar. Go to the YT Saver app’s Downloading tab. If you copied the right hyperlink, the toll will start the download automatically. Or, you can click the Paste URL button to manually paste the source hyperlink.

Video Conversions

YT Saver Video Downloader also comes with a comprehensive video-to-video and video-to-audio conversion utility. Therefore, if you need to convert videos into iPhone or Android-compatible formats, you don’t need to buy a video converter separately.

You can also convert downloaded multimedia from YouTube to MP3, WAV, and other formats for portable music players.

Downloaded Content History

If you’re sharing the app with someone, you might need to monitor your download history. This also comes in handy if you’re downloading videos in bulk and need to log everything. YT Saver’s history tab has two sub tabs: All and Private.

Online Portals

YT Saver’s Online tab gives you access to 14 pre-configured video-sharing platforms directly from the app. You can directly browse for content on Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo, Pluto TV, and more. It also allows you to cut and download small portions of videos which is convenient when creating review or reference videos.

That’s not all:

You can also add more video-sharing platforms with the Add New card in the Online tab.

Extract and Backup Audio

Suppose, you like to listen to your favorite online TV shows and podcasts at work or home but are unable to play video. YT Saver saves the day by offering quick audio extraction from YouTube, Spotify, Dailymotion, Twitch, and other sites. Its audio extraction tool supports 64-320 Kbps.

Video Quality Settings and Internet Settings

The YT Saver app also comes with an elaborate settings section. If you’re a developer or expert creator, you’ll definitely need to make changes to the content quality, conversion queues, audio or video switching, and internet download speeds.
