Xilisoft YouTube HD Video Downloader lets you download videos from the popular YouTube video sharing website. Its main characteristic is the fact that it is capable of downloading High Definition videos in resolutions like 720p or 1080p, besides the classical SD (Standard Definition) ones.

It features a neat built-in web browser that lets you navigate YouTube and preview the videos before adding them to the download list. Searching YouTube for specific videos can also be easily performed right from the interface of this tool. It can also batch download multiple videos at the same time. This will save you a lot of time, especially considering that the download speed is pretty high, regardless of the type of your Internet connection.

On the other hand, Xilisoft YouTube HD Video Downloader can save the download videos only as MP4 files and advanced parameters for the output videos cannot be individually configured. Therefore, you cannot save the videos to other formats than MP4 and to other bit rates or frame rates than the default ones.

In conclusion, though Xilisoft YouTube HD Video Downloader is far from being perfect, it’s really inexpensive and this could represent a great advantage to many users in need of downloading HD videos from YouTube.
