By our lights, this site is the best bang for your proverbial non-dollar (it’s free). Not only is the site reasonably clean of annoying ads, it’s shockingly fast. Simply input your Youtube URL into the text box above the “Convert Video” button, hit convert, and the site will rapidly provide you with a blue link that says “download.” Click it, and save the file. Boom, you’re all set. It’s that simple.
