Despite its name, WinX YouTube Downloader is capable of downloading online video files from a wide variety of sites, not only YouTube. Vevo, Dailymotion, Vimeo, or MTV are but a small sample of a much longer list of sites. You can download your videos in any of the formats and levels of quality in which they are originally available at the site, including all popular SD video codecs and even 1080p and 8K/4K UHD video.

You can paste as many URLs as you wish from as many different sites as needed. The program’s batch downloading capabilities will allow you to create any list of video files regardless of where they come from. For every URL you paste you will be provided with extensive information about the video you intend to download, including its duration, full name, a thumbnail of one of its frames, and a list of all the formats, sizes, and resolutions available. It does not matter if they are MP4, WebM, 3GP, or FLV files, WinX YouTube Downloader supports them all and will grab them all without applying any transcoding routines in the process - all files are left untouched.

The program comes with its own video player for you to enjoy your downloaded videos without the need of opening yet another program. This is ideal for long batch-downloading processes – you can patiently wait until all videos are downloaded while watching some of them as soon as they are processed. Unfortunately, you cannot stop your downloads and resume them later.

This completely free tool simply downloads video files from the Web without modifying them in any way. The “Convert” button that you can see attached to each video on the list requires upgrading to a commercial version of the program in order to work. However, it downloading is all you need and you want it to be free, simple, and efficient, WinX YouTube Downloader may well be the kind of tool you are looking for.
