Romanian developer Chris P.C. has released ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader 5.0, a major new version of its free video downloader and converter tool for Windows. The tool sports a slight name change – it was previously called ChrisTV YouTube Downloader – but adds a number of new features to its roster.
The major new feature is an option to add an entire YouTube channel or user video list to the program’s queue for downloading and converting to a different format. Note that the free version only supports up to 15 files at any one time.
The new build also adds a new advanced menu settings – accessible by clicking the More Settings button and selecting Advanced Settings. It’s split into two tabs: Main Settings allows the user to set up multiple video conversions – a maximum of four simultaneously – and provides additional options for customising YouTube downloads, such as which video file formats to offer for conversion.
The software, which supports Dailymotion, Vimeo, Flickr and many other video websites in addition to YouTube, also comes with the promise of improved download speeds for selected (but unspecified) sites, as well as fixes for issues downloading from DailyMotion, Veoh and Redtube.
The update is rounded off with the usual mix of unspecified fixes and improvements.
ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader 5.0 is available as a free-for-personal-use download for PCs running Windows XP or later.
The program installer will offer to install an extra program – Complitly – twice during installation. Users should be careful to avoid installing this by mistake – make sure you decline the license agreement for the software when shown, and untick “Install Complitly” before clicking Finish.
A commercial-use license, which also includes additional features and the ability to download more than 15 files at any one time, can be purchased for $12.99.
