YTD Video Downloader

Formerly known as YouTube Downloader, they recently renamed  it toYTD Video Downloader updates to version 4.0 with a promise of 2x faster downloads and 2x faster video conversions, and perhaps more usefully, the ability to resume downloads after the temporary loss of an Internet connection.

It has 2 versions the free one & the paid one[With only a few feature upgrades]. The free version of YTD Video Download only allows downloading to the MP4 video format, so the additional conversion functionality for changing the file to WMV, AVI, or MP3 is welcomed,but we have other option also, by using some format changer software like Format Factory.

Internet Download Manager [aka IDM]

I must say it is the king of the download manager category. The promises it makes to its customer to give a very high download data rate, it really keeps. Video grabbing facility of this software is just astonishing, but it is not free

Each time the program recognizes a video in FLV format on a site like YouTube, you'll see a button, and it's one click and you're downloading a video. From the main interface, all you have to do is add the URL for a video to get started[add new URL]. A new window shows you the status and allows you to pause the recording and set up a few options for what to do with the file once the download completes. As advertised, the speed is good. It supports download of video file from any website which allows streaming or have a static video content in the web page.

Digital iVison  Labs recommends you this because its a freeware unlike IDM, the user has more control over the downloads, that is not even available in various paid softwares.  Sticking with the video downloading side, its has a sub module named Video Grabber[Grab++ or Grab Pro], which when enabled to run in the background along with the usual web browsing, it will catch all the video links with the source page indicated with it.
