YTD Music Downloader makes it simple to download videos and music from YouTube.

YTD Music Downloader is freeware for Windows that lets you download content from YouTube. YouTube is among the most popular online media providers. The service is used around the world, and it offers an extensive collection of videos. The music industry uses YouTube as a revenue stream, and so there’s a vast collection of official music videos hosted on it as well.

This program will let you download an entire video from YouTube as is and no matter how long it may be. If you want a particular clip, you can set a precise start time and end time as well. YTD Music Downloader will request just that section and save it as a file for you. These files are saved locally, which means that you can watch them or listen to them later and even without Internet access.

YTD Music Downloader can also download just the music. Perhaps you don’t want to archive a collection of music videos on your hard drive and just want the music instead. This program can request and stream the music video but just extract the music from it. The music will be saved as its own MP3 or in another format, and the video will just be discarded having never been recorded.

Music and even entire videos are able to download impressively fast. Perhaps this is in part because you’re not actually viewing or listening to the content but just processing it in the background. Based on testing, we also suspect that YTD Music Downloader is making multiple connections to YouTube and requesting and processing various pieces concurrently, which helps take advantage of fast connections.

YTD Music Downloader lets you set the quality of the video and music you download. YouTube often offers multiple quality levels, and you can choose from those options, but you aren’t limited to them. That’s because the program has a built-in converter, and it really helps to save space when downloading video clips and music files.

The program is impressively well-optimized. This isn’t a program you’ll want to sit and watch as it works. So, it can run in the background while you multitask. The performance hit is simply unnoticeable on modern machines. The user interface is a bit basic, but it provides the details you need in a straightforward manner, and considering how most users are likely to use this app, we don’t see a UI without all the bells and whistles to be much of a con.

Note that this program only works with YouTube, and we would like to see support for other online video providers. Note also that it is against the YouTube terms of service to download content from it, and whether or not that makes it illegal depends on your jurisdiction.
