Cool YouTube Video Downloader – Cool YouTube To Mp3 Converter is a simple-to-use piece of software that enables you to quickly download YouTube clips and convert them to other video formats, namely AVI, MP4, FLV, SWF, MPEG, RM, RMV, MOV and 3GP.
It is also capable to extract the audio stream and save it to WAV, MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC, M4A, FLAC and MP2, as well to prepare videos for playback on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, BlackBerry, iPad, Android and other platforms.
The setup procedure is quick and uneventful. As far as the UI is concerned, you can easily follow the steps in the wizard to accomplish a task in no time.
Download YouTube videos
When it comes to fetching YouTube clips, all you have to do is paste links in a box, pick the preferred quality and establish the saving directory. Once the task is finished, you can view total files, successful and failed files, open the output folder from the wizard, as well as proceed to the conversion operation immediately.
Convert audio and video files
The program integrates a separate component dedicated to audio and video conversion, and it also works with local files (not necessarily the items downloaded with Cool YouTube To Mp3 Converter).
Batch processing is supported, meaning that you can work with multiple items at once. You can select a preset for the quality (just like with the downloading module). During conversion, the app can be set to play a sound on task completion and to power off the computer. Log details are available.
Performance and conclusion
The tool is very low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it doesn’t put a strain on PC performance. It delivers quality audio and video after conversion. Unfortunately, it failed in its attempt to download several videos during our evaluation. Other than that, it can be handled by all types of users.
