This section details the features of YouTube Downloader Plus RT and offers a quick guide and how to use the program in the most efficient and fun way.
Let’s start with the Main Window shown in the image below:
Here you’ll have the same searching abilities as in the regular YouTube (including the ability to filter your results based on the upload date of the content you are searching – default, last hour, today, this week, this month, this year).
While you can also check out the most popular videos at the moment displayed as above, the program allows you to list the most popular YouTube videos based on a category you specify.
Below there’s an example of results prompted after performing a search for the terms “windows 8 rt”:
At any time when clicking on a video shown in the main window, that video will be played back in a new window where downloading options will be available (see image below). When returning to the search window, all the prior results shown for your query will be listed again.
While playbacking a video in this window, you will be able to download it as mp4 or, if you only want the audio from it, as an mp3 file, by clicking on the icons as shown in the image above.
When downloading a file, a progress bar will be displayed so you can always check out the remaining time to completion (very useful especially when downloading large size files); the program also allows you to pause a download or remove it altogether (buttons at the center bottom).
Your downloaded files will be saved under My Videos (mp4 files) and My Music (mp3 files) in folders titled YouTube Downloader Plus RT – to access them simply click on My Downloads (bottom left corner).
If you’re downloading a file and access My Downloads, the download progress bar will be also available here, together with the options to pause that download or remove it.
Enjoy using YouTube Downloader Plus RT !
