All Free Youtube Downloader (AFYD) is more than a simple youtube video download tool. It is a software capable of performing numerous feats while remaining quick, responsive and light on your system. You can use this program to download online videos, convert video files and rip DVD/CD.
The first thing you will notice when you will open AFYD is the UI. The UI, though not one of the best looking, stays user-friendly. Every feature that this program offers is easily accessible and well placed on the main window.
AFYD has a dedicated video/audio converter. This program supports all popular video formats (MP4, MKV, AVI, MPEG to name but a few) and audio formats (FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV to name but a few). You can use this program to trim video/audio, add effects, watermarks, delays and convert videos to GIF. A small playback window will show you the progress of the conversion along with the preview. Another good thing about this program is that you can customize the formats it supports. If you have a subtitle file to go along with a video, you can use this program to embed subtitles.
Video Downloader can download videos from Youtube without any hitch. Just copy the video URL, paste in the address bar and press ADD tab. You can set pre-define quality and output of the downloaded video to suit your requirements. This program will convert downloaded video automatically.
DVD Ripper is similar in use to video downloader. AFYD offers multiple customization opportunities to tinker with your DVDs. You can disable audio/subtitle, convert files after ripping and add filters. Filters such as setting audio levels, crop, deinterlace and rotate offer better control over ripped DVDs. What I really liked about this program is that it lets you set different DVD jobs in a queue so you can place all your DVDs in the queue, set operations and leave it. You can also choose to have AFYS shut down your computer after it is done with the jobs.
To summarize, All Free Youtube Downloader is an all-in-one package for your video/audio download and conversion needs. Although most of the features are free, some do require you to make a donation but it is a bargain as other similar programs either don’t have those feature or offer them at very high prices. All Free YouTube Downloader HD is another variant of this software. It offers support to HD content and support to high resolution videos. I recommend this software to YouTubers and to those who require a powerful and free alternative to other video conversion tools.
