This tool can help you download and convert video. As sharing video over the Internet becomes increasingly popular, applications of this type are more frequently demanded. It has a nice, easy interface thanks to the use of tabs.
There are various ways to start a new download task, and probably the easiest one is by using the in-built web browser. Although YouTube appears as the home page, you can actually navigate to some other video-sharing sites. Then, you can use the search functions of these sites to find the desired videos. After that, it is quite easy to start downloading them by choosing one of the available qualities and formats. In addition, you can also add a URL directly or let the program monitor Internet Explorer for downloadable contents. Finally, you can ask the application to convert the videos once they have been downloaded.
Unfortunately, this converter supports few input formats, as only FLV and MP4 are allowed. However, you can convert your videos to a much wider range. Multiple built-in output profiles are supported, and luckily most of them have been adequately configured for many portable devices. It is a shame that they cannot be customized.
All in all, 4Media YouTube Video Converter is a useful tool. It combines two necessary functions. However, it cannot download videos as fast as other download managers, and even worse, as a converter, it has a too limited range of source formats.
