Ultimate Downloader Pro is a complex program which gathers more functions in a single user interface. Thus, the app works as a downloader, converter, video and audio player. It also allows you to burn CDs and DVDs.
It should be noted that FFmpeg needs to be installed so that the program could function.
The interface is not crowded, but some controls are not placed at hand, making it a little hard to work with. Whether you're dissatisfied with the default theme, the application comes with 11 available skins. If these are not enough, you may download other ones easily. Although the official website informs you about the possibility to download from over 500 sites, when testing I noticed that many files can’t be saved to your computer. If you need a specific video format, the program first downloads it to its own format, and then converts it. The most common formats are available for conversion, among which I could mention AVI, 3GP, MP4, MPG, VMV and more. You can change the size, the bitrate or the frame rate for each of them.
The idea to download videos from multiple websites using the same program seems interesting. However, the fact that it is impossible to download any video or audio from some sites left me disappointed. Maybe the developer should display a list of those 500 sites constantly updated. As for burning CD/DVD, this program doesn’t have a tool of its own; instead, it uses the standard app from Windows.
- The speed of conversion is relatively fast
- Downloading, converting and burning CD/DVD are possible through the same program
- Downloading video or audio files is not allowed for all the sites mentioned on the list
- Can't be used without FFmpeg installed
