Easy Video Downloader simplifies downloading videos from the Web for mobile use.

Easy Video Downloader is a Windows program that seeks to solve a problem that many mobile users have. Many users want videos on their phone or tablet that can be viewed offline. The problem there is that videos often download in a format that mobile devices can’t handle natively.

What this program seeks to do is ease the challenge of downloading those files for offline use and converting them to a file format that your device can handle natively. Easy Video Downloader works with YouTube, Google Video and Facebook. Provided a source, the app is very hands off. Just press the start button and wait for it to complete. You can opt between either AVI or MPEG4.

The user interface is well done. It’s modern and organized, and it doesn’t include clutter outside of a few links to the developer’s other software solutions. It features an accurate progress bar and makes it easy to determine where the downloaded and/or converted file is saved to. Depending on which mobile device you use, if it’s connected, you can even save the file directly to its storage.

Easy Video Downloader has a lot going for it, but it also has some significant downsides that we think may push users to the competition. One big issue is the speed at which it performs conversion to AVI. Relative to other download solutions like it, Easy Video Downloader is quite slow. Another issue is that it doesn’t interact with sites in a user-friendly way. You have to search in your browser, for instance, and then, input links one at a time. When the current conversion is complete, you can input another. Further compounding the problem is that many video-hosting sites are simply not supported or at least not well.

Pros

  • Grab video files for mobile use
  • Download and convert as needed

Cons

  • Slow
  • Many video sites not supported

Easy Video Downloader is designed for users looking for a way to download videos from a wide variety of online websites. Supported sites include major outlets like Vimeo, Bing, DailyMotion, Metacafe, Facebook and many others. The program is designed to be as easy as possible to use in order to allow users to download videos quickly without hassle. The platform can even be used to download videos from places like IMDb, Yahoo, Flickr and others. Also, users can search for videos directly from the program rather than having to view a webpage. Below is a full explanation of the features included with Easy Video Downloader.

Easy to Use

The program is designed to be easy to use with very simple functionality to enable users to download videos quickly. Generally, videos can be downloaded by simply using the provided search function with the program. From there, individual videos can be downloaded directly to the computer without advertisements. Users are also able to paste a list of URLs directly into the program and have these downloaded automatically. Once the list of target videos has been completed, users can simply click the download button and get started immediately. The program even supports downloading multiple videos at the same time in order to streamline the download process.

Video Conversions

Rather than needing to download a separate program for conversions, users can convert downloaded videos into convenient file types directly from Fast Video Downloader. The program can make videos compatible with modern devices like iPhone, iPad and Android systems. Rather than having to take several steps in order to download videos, this program makes it easy by doing everything in one package.

Easy Interface

Fast Video Downloader has a simple interface designed to make usage simple for non-technical users. Very clear sections like a "paste" box and a big button that says "download" make it easy to operate the software. While the program has few settings, this also makes it simple for users since they won't need to worry about changing views in order to use the software. Rather, the software can simply be downloaded and users can get started immediately. The software has also taken steps to make updates easier by offering a simple update button and telling users the version right at the bottom of the window.
