Aura YouTube Downloader is a free YouTube video downloader. It also supports downloads from Google Video, MetaCafe, and Nico Video. I found this application very easy to use. You can copy and paste a video URL into the application and it will get added to a queue. You can add as many videos as you want to this queue and you can start it at any time with the "start" button. This downloader doesn't have a built-in search engine and it can't preview files, but it is still a great downloader, mainly because it works very well.
In my testing, I added a random YouTube video and started the download. To my surprise, the speed was actually very fast, and a four-minute video downloaded in less than 2 minutes. After the video was downloaded, it got added to a list of downloaded files, and it was tagged as a YouTube download. I could also play the video using the built-in video player. This player is very basic. It is quite small and I can't seem to find a way to play video on full-screen or to increase its size at all.
All in all, you have to rate this type of application based on its performance. And as a downloader, Aura YouTube Downloaders works great.
- It works very well
