EaseUS Video Downloader Review – Make Technology Easier
There are many reasons why you might want to secure an online video and take it offline for later use. Maybe you’re doing research and don’t want to risk the videos you’re using as a reference becoming unavailable. Maybe you want to keep all the videos in one place so that you can browse them all without searching or waiting.
In another scenario, for example, you uploaded a video to a streaming site and you no longer have the original but want it back. If you saved it offline, you can at least have a backup of it. Maybe you’re going to a remote location with no Wi-Fi for a month. You can line up a bunch of videos to entertain yourself. This review examines EaseUS Video Downloader to see how it could help you in these scenarios.

EaseUS Video Downloader is an application that allows you to download videos from your favorite video sharing sites for offline use. The software is very easy to use and even includes its own search box so you can search for videos on any topic you want.
The first page is a shortcut page and includes links to all popular video hosting sites. From here you have two more tabs that do the actual work: “Download”, which is actually the video tab, and “Video to Audio”, which will download the soundtrack of a video as a file. MP3 audio. This means that if you have a video and you only want the soundtrack and not the visuals, you can download it as a ready-to-use MP3.
In the settings menu option, you can set the download directory and change additional settings, such as the maximum number of downloads and auto-resume on restart for those large downloads.
Autonomous video library
Having spent quite a bit of time on vacation recently and in a place that, while lovely, had very little cell coverage or Wi-Fi, I wish I had the foresight to download a bunch of TV shows or movies on my laptop or iPad before I left. It’s easy to forget in the 21st century that we won’t always be surrounded by Wi-Fi everywhere we go. This is especially true with entertainment. We take it for granted. It’s times like this that I realize the benefits of software that makes it easy to take things offline that I would normally consume online.
Obviously this is not an invitation to upload things that don’t belong to you, and as long as a video is freely available for viewing online, there is an arguable fair use case to legally disconnect it, although a gray area. It’s kind of like recording a TV show to watch later and just a 21st century version of old VHS recorders or Tivos.
EaseUS Video Downloader software is simple and compact, not a big piece of code, and the controls are easy to understand for everyone. Drop a URL on the tab and wait for it to upload to your previously specified directory.
Although it is essentially paid software, it is easy to know if this utility would be the right solution for you. There is a trial version that you can download for free from the site. Once you’ve established that you want to buy it, all you have to do is pay, register the version you already have installed, and turn it into a paid version. Simple.
One of the biggest bonuses of the software for me was the ability to add multiple videos to the downloader and go. The videos will be uploaded in order while I’m away or in the background of whatever I’m doing.
The software does not perform any transcoding, so the video is of the same quality as that available online. This is both a good and a bad thing, as video made for streaming is sometimes notoriously blurry in quality.
You will pay different prices for the Windows and macOS versions of EaseUS Video Downloader. For the Windows version, you’ll pay $12.99/month, $23.99/year, and a one-time purchase of $39.99/lifetime. For the macOS version, you’ll pay $19.99/month, $29.99/year, and a one-time purchase of $49.99/lifetime.
