The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.0
Xilisoft Download YouTube Video is an application that downloads YouTube videos. As the user may know already, those videos that we love to watch at www.youtube.com can be downloaded and played on the computer. This application does exactly that. It downloads the .FLV file hosted by YouTube to your computer. Xilisoft Download YouTube Video makes this task way easier than the alternatives. It requires no other applications and lets the user download videos by simply using the included drag-and-drop functionality. But that is not all. This great application comes bundled with a built-in FLV player that will play all those videos that you download. Most other downloading utilities that boast that they can download off Youtube do just that - download them. But this one will even play those files. The best thing about this application is that it was developed by Xilisoft, which is a leading company on everything video. Well, it's also free. So, all in all, this is a combination that cannot fail.
