According to VirusTotal, the file at is clean... but check before using.

Once again, the installer has malware/adware. Web of Trust rates the site with poor reputation in Trustworthiness and Child Safety. The application itself should be OK, but neither the installer nor the download link above is safe.

Since we're debating preferences here, let me point out 3D Youtube Downloader ( as another excellent alternative...

This one is better, IMHO. It will download and convert to different formats including MP3.

AFAIK, it uses ffmpeg as the download engine (as do most YouTube downloaders) - and I daresay a large part of that size is due to having simply to include the various ffmpeg files.

I do have browser addons for this, but those tend to break with every dreaded youtube redesign, so an app like this can be useful. I just don't get the enormous (11MB packed/27MB unpacked(!)) size of this. It's supposed to just downloads video's. Why does it need to be this huge?
