We are living in the age of the Internet, and in this age, videos are dominating any other form of content and entertainment. For the reason that videos are far more engaging and influencing than a normal text. Also, anyone with an internet connection can access videos anytime anywhere they want, which makes them more sought-after.
Meanwhile, with the rise of video sharing websites like YouTube and Dailymotion, the numbers of creators are going through the ceiling.
Thus, video content creation is emerging as one of the hottest career options in the 21st century. However, to become a good creator you require passion, hard work, and some good tools. That being the case, we have come up with the review of Aimersoft iTube HD Video Downloader, which is an all-in-one video utility software.
iTube HD Video Downloader is capable of downloading 4K videos from over 10,000 websites like YouTube, Facebook, and others. Also, you can record your computer screen with its screen recorder feature. Other than that, you can convert the downloaded and recorded videos into various formats.
Moreover, you get an option to transfer your video files to an Android or iOS device using a data cable. Enough said, let’s jump right into the review.
iTube HD Video Downloader Review
Aimersoft iTube HD Video Downloader is available for both Windows and Mac devices.
It supports Windows versions 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP with at least 512 MB of RAM and 1GHz Intel processor or above.
In the case of Mac, it supports Mac OS X 10.14, 10.13,10.12 till Mac OS 10.6, having 512 MB RAM and 1GHz Intel Processor and above.
Overall, the system compatibility of this software is good enough to work on even old computers.
I personally tested this software on an old laptop having 2GHz Intel Pentium processor and 2 GB RAM, and to my surprise, it worked like a charm. Hence, system requirements should not be a cause of concern, if you are looking to go with this software.
iTube HD Video Downloader is really a feature-rich software, you can use it to download, record, convert, and transfer videos simultaneously.
1. Download 4K And Full HD Videos
The most important feature of iTube HD Video Downloader as the name suggests is downloading videos from the internet. It supports over 10000 websites like YouTube, Google Videos, Vimeo, VEVO, Facebook, Dailymotion, etc. from where you can download videos without any hassle.
You can download HD videos from 720p to 4K depending upon the video resolution, it also supports other standard-resolution videos. You can also protect your downloaded videos with a password using Private Mode.
There are two ways to download videos from any website using this software. You can either manually paste the video URL in the software. Or you can download videos directly from the website using the Download Plugin, it is also possible to download multiple videos with it. Just paste multiple URLs into the program, and then download the videos from your favorite website.
Also, you get the Download then Convert Mode for directly downloading and converting videos to any other format at once. Other than that, this mode enables you to directly download videos as MP3 and other audio files with one click.
This program also has an inbuilt Turbo Mode for 3x faster downloads. The Turbo Mode is an up-to-date downloading technology that uses a multi-thread downloading method to accelerate your video downloading process. I personally tried the Turbo Mode however it is not 3 times fast but yes it is comparatively faster than the normal mode.
2. Screen Recorder
Another main feature of this software is the screen recorder. With the help of this feature, you can record online videos with original quality. This screen recorder also provides a customizable recording frame for you to capture any particular area on your screen. It also has a built-in video player to play the recorded and downloaded videos in the program itself.
Also, you get the option to choose the quality of your recording i.e. you can choose from High, Medium and Low quality. The highest frame rate at which you can record videos, gameplay, etc. is 30 FPS which could have been better. Because the recordings feel a little laggy at times. The good thing is that you can enter the start and stop time of your recording.
Generally, I liked the screen recorder feature of this program, but wish it could support higher frame rates.
3. Convert Videos
If you are a creator, then you know the importance of converting videos from one format to another. And with this program, you get to convert the recorded and downloaded videos with just one click. iTube HD Video Downloader supports almost all the major video formats in which you can convert your downloaded or recorded videos.
With the convert feature of this program, you can convert your videos for different types of media devices like Apple, Android, as well gaming devices.
Furthermore, you can convert your videos to audio formats like MP3, M4A, WAV, MKA, AC3, AAC, OGG, APE, and more. Other than that, you can convert the existing video format of a downloaded or recorded video file to other video formats like MP4, MOV, WMV, AVI, and more.
Videos after conversion are of good quality. However, it takes little time to convert heavy files into another format.
4. Transfer Videos
Once you have downloaded/recorded and converted the video in the desired format, then the only thing left is to transfer it.
With this program, you also get the option to transfer videos to your Android or iOS devices with the help of a USB cable. It supports Apple devices with iOS 5 and later, and devices with Android 2.2 or later.
To transfer your videos all you need to do is, connect your device with your computer and install the drivers for your device on the computer. The drivers will be automatically installed on your computer when you connect your device to the computer, just make sure that your computer is connected to the internet. You can follow the instructions on the screen while installing the drivers to tether your device with the computer.
These instructions need to be followed only once, and from the next time, your device will be automatically tethered with your computer.
5. Built-in Website Browser
Last but certainly not the least the built-in web browser is a feature that you rarely get to see with any converter or downloader program. With this feature, you can browse video sharing site and download videos within the website directly with this program. I browsed sites like YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, and VEVO on this built-in web browser.
And it was really tough for me to distinguish this built-in web browser with other web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, etc. Because the sites were running exactly the same as they run on a normal web browser, so it’s really a cool feature that makes this program stand-alone among its competition.
Trail Vs Paid Version
iTube HD Video Downloader comes in both free and paid versions. With the free version, you get to use all the features of the program but with restrictions. On the other hand, the paid version allows you to use this program to its fullest i.e no restrictions on any of the features. You are given the trial version to test out all the features yourself and then Pay for it only if you are satisfied with the software.
As the name suggests, the trial version is just for trying out the program and its features.
With the trial version of this program, you can download videos up to 4K resolution but the restriction is that you can download only two videos in the trial version.
Other than that the program allows you to record unlimited videos in its trial version, but you can only record videos with 1-minute length at a time. The same goes with the video conversion as well, you can convert unlimited videos but only to 1/3rd the length of the original video.
Also, you can only transfer 10 video files to your Android or iOS devices in the free version of this program.
In the paid or registered version, you get no restrictions whatsoever on any of the features of this program. You can download unlimited videos of up to 4k resolution from over 10,000 websites. Also, you can record the screen on your computer for as much time as you want in the original quality.
Moreover, you get to convert all the downloaded and recorded videos to any given format in full length. Additionally, now you can transfer an endless amount of videos to your device with no hassles. So overall it’s a wise decision to go for a registered version of this program. But you can try the free version first and then make the decision on whether to buy this video downloader or not.
Final Verdict On iTube Downloader
To conclude I’d like to say that, it’s an amazing video utility tool that you need to have in your arsenal if you are a creator, or looking to be one.
I personally liked the option of transferring files from the iTube HD Video Downloader to Android and iOS devices. It makes is so much more convenient to work like this.
Also, you can try it first by yourself in the trial version and then make your mind if you need this program or not. Other than that, if you don’t have a high-end PC, then also you can go with this program as the system requirements are quite less for it.
The pricing for the paid version starts at only $19 for Windows while for Mac it is $24.95.
