Downloading safely...

In reply to: Safe Downloader Software

1.) Depends on which websites you're specifically referring to.
2.) Read user reviews and scan them with security software upon download.
3.) Download from trusted websites that are themselves well-reviewed.
4.) Either one is fine - "Application" refers to EXE on a Windows computer.
5.) YouTube TOS prohibit downloading videos unless the option is provided by the copyright holder.

Hope this helps,
John
