Reviews for this release

May23-2013: I like the simplicity of this application, and does what has to be done. Used it for 6 months now and no issues since. Highly recommend this, highest quality downloader out there without useless functions! Aug1-2014: Fairly long user now, and noticed, that the AAC format in the Extract Audio function is not listed. BIG bummer for me :(. I don't think this is the coder's error and just YouTube changes ever so fast these days.

Since 2012-2013 this app has helped me find songs on YouTube that weren't available via BitTorrent or for purchase in the Amazon Prime mp3 store. It's certainly worth more than the $5 I donated. Unfortunately, YouTube seems to continue to change its links and site code in an effort to break awesome apps like this. e.g. to "Extract Audio" at URL: or URL: fails and the app displays an error message. Still deserves 5 stars.

Nice and simple, and it works. I love it! Also, the recent 1 star reviews appear to be from the same person using multiple accounts.

this Tool is perfect, as it won't require any Installation. Additionally: you can extract the Raw, yes the Raw audio data from the video. I dont unterstand why this got 2 Stars, just because it cant convert to 3GP (if I understood the last review). But converting is not the Job of this Tool. Keep up the Good work!

I have been using YT Fisher now going on a couple of months, and love it. You get your videos downloaded in the background while you continue browsing vids, then can watch them leisurely WITHOUT ads or comments, and afterward simply click shift-delete or leave them on your hard drive to watch again another time. Sometimes a vid doesn't load properly, but a minor inconvenience, no more.

Works great. My reason for downloading was to learn from the code, but as of 13 03 13, the download works just as expected. From a programmer point of view, written very clearly, code was very easy to understand and worked with no modification on vs 2012 for desktop .

That's kind of projects I like here - simple, focussed on a task, and doing that task well. For all others who need conversion to iThis, iThat - 'net is full of stuff specifically made for this. After all, this is a showcase of a software craftsmanship.

Overall this is a great application. Hasn't crashed on me, but it does move very slowly occasionally. Cannot retrieve all videos from youtube, (VEVO in particular, but I'm guessing this is DRM, not youtubeFisher's fault) A couple of bugs, but I would recommend this. Add a conversion feature, and fix the bugs and it's five stars from me.

the stupidness of installing .net framework before using. Better than that is ytd the best & DVDvideosoft youtubedownloader I like these too much as in these we can see thumbnail of video name of video & also pause & play settings the stupidness software. The ui is also very yucky the green colour yucky.Minimum next time use a background for your baby.. the small one.My brother is better than you.
