As you’ve probably guessed from its name, the main purpose of Xilisoft YouTube HD Video Converter is to help you download videos from YouTube. The most important difference between this tool and other YouTube video downloaders is the fact that this utility fully supports HD videos. Other than that, it’s a rather average video downloading program that offers the same basic features and functions that most applications of its kind also offer. It includes a simple browsing function that lets you search for YouTube videos and watch them before adding them to the download list. Batch downloading multiple videos as once is possible. Unfortunately, the videos will be automatically converted and saved only as MP4 files. You cannot select any other video file format as the output format for the downloaded videos. Furthermore, parameters such as the bit rate or the frame rate cannot be changed, therefore the quality and the size of the output video file will not depend on your preference.
Anyway, even though it comes with important downsides that are hard to ignore, Xilisoft YouTube HD Video Converter has some advantages too, and these advantages might make it a viable choice for many users in need of a YouTube video downloading solution. One of these advantages is the very easy-to-use and intuitive interface. Another would be the decent downloading speed.
In conclusion, Xilisoft YouTube HD Video Converter is a rather average video downloader. Unfortunately, because of its obvious downsides, its price is quite hard to justify.
