WinX YouTube Downloader is an online video downloader for Windows. It lets you download videos of any size, duration, and quality from the popular site in a fast manner and without complications.

The application uses a simple method to download videos from YouTube, which consists in copying a video URL and pasting it into the program window. It can detect YouTube URLs in the clipboard automatically, which makes the process even faster. Once the URL is detected, the app will analyze the video showing its title and duration, and letting you choose the resolution and format that you want to download. That way, you can choose HD if available, or choose any video format and quality you prefer.

This YouTube downloader has a simple user interface that looks clean and modern, and includes a video player so you can preview video even before downloading. From the Options window, you can set a default format and resolution for your future downloads, and set a limit on the download speed in case you want to preserve bandwidth for other activities.

Probably the app's major limitation is that it works with YouTube only; no chance of downloading videos from Vimeo or DailyMotion with it. Another feature I'd like to see is the possibility of pausing and resuming downloads.

In short, WinX YouTube Downloader offers a quick and easy way to obtain videos from the most popular video-sharing site. I particularly liked the way it lets you choose the format and quality of a video. The app is completely free and has no ads or third-party software.
