SVDownloader comes as a powerful and efficient download manager

SVDownloader will help you download web videos from video hosting sites like YouTube, MetaCafe, and others. It comes with an organized graphical user-interface, and provides fast conversion speeds. Also, the program is able to search for online videos by using its integrated searching tool.

Although at first sight, SVDownloader seems to be a very promising application, it actually has many flaws that disappointed me a lot. First off, its graphical user-interface displays annoying ads. I know from experience that other free downloaders of this kind are completely clean. That’s why I recommend users to try them before installing SVDownloader.

Another thing which I consider to be a great drawback is the fact that SVDownloader is only able to download FLV videos. If you need to convert them to other video formats, you need to install an additional tool from the same developer.

SVDownloader doesn't bring anything new to the table. Even more so, it fails to deliver what it promises, while other free downloaders work perfectly.
