The first one, allows you to download any YouTube video at your preferred resolution, from HD 1080p to FLV low-quality at 240p. You choose.

The second one allows you to download the video clip as an .MP3 file.   Very useful. 9/10   Downloadable versions: An Android version of the video downloader is also available here: http://www.wontube.com/free-youtube-downloader.html as well as free desktop versions for PC and Mac video converter tool http://www.wontube.com/free-video-converter.html    More info: http://www.wontube.com/
