YouTube By Click Comments

I started to use this software a few days ago 1 Helpful

about YouTube By Click Nov 2015

I downloaded YouTube by Click after I saw a friend of mine using it.

The thing that surprised me the most about this software is the usage - My friend managed to add to the downloading queue so many songs in a minute.
Every time you enter a downloadable link an offer popup is shown on the bottom right corner of the screen.

It supports downloading entire youtube channels all at once.

If you are looking for a video downloader - stop looking!



about YouTube By Click Jul 2015

Dear Sir,
One day, I had searched the internet for a downloader for songs in directly in mp3 or mp4 , and found the Youtube By Click downloader which met with all my needs . But, unfortunately , whenever I did the installing part , it failed by showing no internet,so connect the internet although I had already connected with internet. Please show me a way if there is to download Youtube by Click_ .
With hope,

about YouTube By Click and 4k Video Downloader, KeepVid Mar 2015

I've used 4K Video Downloader, KeepVid
Now I'm using YouTube by Click and I'm in a download heaven!

4K downloader and other downloader charge money for a functionality that is given for free in YouTube by Click such as:
Playlist download
Tagging - In YouTube by Click the artist name and the song name are saved in the downloaded file

It was a pleasent surprise to find that YouTube by Click doesn't come with adwares contrary to 4K video downloader.

Moreover 4K downloaders user exprience is awful and the dowloads many time fail with for unknown reason ("Download error" ... ?).

YouTube by Click interface is amazing, the download is easy and always works.

4K Video Downloader is better than YouTube By Click or -1 Helpful

Comment by HughTash
about YouTube By Click and 4k Video Downloader, KeepVid Jan 2015

I've tested 4K Video Downloader, YouTube By Click,

4K Video Downloader offers to choose from various resolutions and formats. Moreover, 4K Video Downloader allows to download video subtitles too (if video subtitles are available). I also prefer 4K Video Downloader user interface rather than YouTube By Click interface.

4K Video Downloader offers standalone installer that isn't bloated with addware (bloatware), contrary to YouTube By Click, which offers bloatware and you must be careful not to install that bloatware.

I've used to like, but doesn't offer downloading high resolution (1080p, 4K) for some videos. Also was unable to download subtitles for some videos. In all of those cases, 4K Video Downloader worked just fine.

As of 2015-01 I'm going to use 4K Video Downloader as my primary YouTube downloader.
I recommend you try 4K Video Downloader first before trying other YouTube downloaders.

about YouTube By Click Mar 2013

This extension makes Google Chrome very slow. I couldn't use Google Chrome anymore. I tried cleanning everything on the browser, but no success. When I removed it from my extensions my Chrome came back normal. I don't recommend it.


thank you
