[Tested] Software to download complete YouTube playlist
I don’t doubt if you already know a Firefox add-on to download all videos of a user or a playlist to your PC, however I am sharing 3 software tools which works independent of any browser.
(+) **I am not sure if the “J” was inspired by Java which is even its development platform, I am atleast sure that it will help you to download videos on any Operating system from not just YouTube but even public file hosts like *Rapidshare ***and *Megaupload * even you not subscribed to their premium services. It even bypasses the need to enter a captcha manually. It also supports download Resume function.
**(-) **The interface seems to be somewhat “*not instantaneous*” and heavy on CPU. This is probably because of it’s built platform is Java, and this is typical of Java-built software.
Free YouTube Download
**(+) **This looks neat and simple. No menus, no add-ons to shuffle with. Directly paste your video, playlist or channel url and it fetches the complete list for you to start downloading in any of the major formats.
(-) Only MP4, AVI and FLV formats are available. Many other important formats are not covered.

(+) This one is fantastic, though you must go to Tools menu –> YouTube to download multiple videos from a user or channel. It is not just for YouTube, but it lets you download from a wide range of services, mentioned here. However what other software cannot compete is its Turbo Download which offers upto 600% faster speeds. Also, it lets you search & directly download MP3 or Videos directly within the software. Offers almost all formats for videos and music.
(-) Found few bugs which even you may experience while using it.
Do post your comments if you have used any software you feel is better.
