  1. YoutubeToMp3.guru
  2. Youtubedownloader.com

There are five key features that make a YouTube downloader/converter the best:

  2. Setup;
  3. Download speed;
  4. User-friendly interface;
  5. Output options.

We will take each five of these features one by one and see how they influence the popularity of these video Downloaders.


The best ones are always the cheapest ones; better yet, the free ones. All five of the aforementioned tools are free to use and ad-supported. Well, you have to give some to gain some. These Downloaders do make their money from these ads. Some might have ads within the installations while others show the ads on-site.


Some of these Downloaders are required to be installed on your Windows OS PC while others are basically online tools, which means you don’t need to install them on your computer. 

Youtubedownloader.com is of the former type while YoutubeToMps3.guru and Keepvid.com are online tools. However, most of the others require an extension to be downloaded in order to use them online.

Download Speed

Just like free pricing, fast downloading is also another key feature of these Downloaders. Most of them are very fast in downloading videos from YouTube. What makes them special is that you will not find any buffering during conversion or downloading. This means no waste of time. If you count the time needed for you to select a format of your choice before starting the downloading, then that is the only recordable lapse of time.

User-friendly Interface

The interface is the same for almost all of these tools. There is a text box where you need to paste the copied URL of the video that you want to convert & download. The minimalistic approach these Downloaders have is what makes them so popular. 

Output Options

Most of the time users look for converting a certain video into a less spacious format, or for better quality.  There are other reasons varying for each individual. Anyways, the best of these Downloaders provide a number of convertible formats and resolutions for you to choose from.
