4U Download YouTube Video is a commercial video downloader. It can download any video from YouTube.com and save it to your computer. The app has a video converter built in, so you can also convert the videos that you download into a variety of other formats, which saves you a lot of time.
To add a new download to the queue, you simply have to click on "New" and a new window will appear. You have to copy the URL of the video that you want to download first, and the application will automatically paste it for you. There is a drop-down menu with all the supported output formats. All the most popular ones are there, including DivX, XviD, MPEG-4, H.264, etc. and there are even profiles for iPods and iPhones.
In my testing, I downloaded a video and converted it to DivX and MP4. The status for the DivX file got stuck on "Converting" and never moved from 50%. The MP4 file converted fine and I was able to play it in VLC with no problems.
Note that if you're using the trial version, only 60% of the videos will be downloaded until you register the application.
