Due to this user-friendly application, you can download videos, songs and playlists from YouTube and other online platforms up to 4x faster
Online downloaders are a dime a dozen these days, so it is entirely up to you to find the one that best matches your expectations.
If you are looking for an app that not only does its job, but also looks good, you can try YT-DL.
The GUI of YT-DL is intuitive, so you can easily know where to paste the URL of the video you want to download. Pasting the link automatically triggers the download - if you want to delay the download, you have the possibility to just paste the link within the main window.
It mainly supports YouTube, yet you are supposed to be able to grab clips from other platforms as well (we tested links from Facebook and Twitter, and we encountered no issues whatsoever). In other words, you can experiment with the app and check if it provides support for your preferred online streaming services.
Supports multiple quality levels for the output file
By default, YT-DL grabs the video you are pointing it to. Yet, you have the alternative to only download audio of the respective file, so you can listen to it on other devices.
While you have no control over the file format of the downloaded file (the default extension for each platform is used), you can tamper with the quality level. This value can range between low, medium, high, HD 720, HD 1080, to HD 2k, HD 4k, HD 8k or highest quality available.
It needs to be mentioned that YT-DL does not pack a playback module, so you need to use the standard media player on your computer to watch the resulting files.
To wrap it up, YT-DL can become your go-to app for downloading content from various online services, as long as you don't mind not being able to choose the destination file format.
