Freemake YouTube MP3 Converter can help you download and convert video. The program has a nice multi-language interface characterized by the simplicity of its design, which makes any user feel at ease. Moreover, it is well documented, with exact instructions on how to perform every specific task, including an introductory video.
The application supports batch downloading of up to five videos simultaneously. In order to add a new task, it is enough to copy the desired video URL to the clipboard and use the Paste URL button to add it to the download list. The program has two modes: the standard mode and the one-click mode. I found the latter particularly interesting because it works by creating a sentence containing the instructions on how to proceed. This way, you can tell the program, for example, to “choose the best quality, then convert to PSP and save to C:\downloads”, thus providing an easy way to pick a quality level, a target format and an output location. Three different qualities are available: best quality, optimal parameters and minimum size. Similarly, there are some post-download actions to choose from, such as extracting audio or converting to a given video format. Unfortunately, the price you have to pay for such ease of operation is the lack of customization options.
Other configurable options include setting a speed limit so that the program does not interfere with your browsing speed, adding proxy parameters and using network accounts to access private or age-restricted videos.
In general, the main advantage of Freemake YouTube MP3 Converter is its usability, while the lack of sophistication is the price you have to pay for such ease of use. As this is freeware, you will not need to worry about the cost, and as it has a low size, it will very easy to download it and see if it works for you.
