Video Download Professional for Edge is now available in the Windows Store

It looks like Microsoft's Edge extension program is starting to pick up steam. After last week's release of GetThemAll and Enhancer for YouTube another popular extension is now ready for the masses.

Video Download Professional for Edge – which is ported over from Chrome and has amassed 136,322 reviews – is now ready to grab videos from YouTube, Vimeo and more.

From the app description:

Easily download videos from YouTube and numerous other sites

  • Download and save videos playing on a website to hard disk
  • Add videos easily to your video list. There you have quick access to the videos, and you can play them at any time, without having to return to the original web page. You also have the option to play the videos in any size (currently available at selected video providers like YouTube and Vimeo)

You will need to restart Edge after you download, install, and enable Video Download Professional for it to kick in, at least we did on our PC.

Heading to YouTube and Vimeo we were successfully able to see the download arrow turn green, offering up the various resolutions, formats, and file sizes to grab. We had no issue capturing Microsoft's Surface Laptop intro video in our test making this a potentially top-rated app.

We should note that some resolutions are not supported as the company tries to upsell you to its stand-alone "ultimate" Windows 10 app, which starts at $9.99, but we'll take what we can get for free.

Grab Video Download Professional for Edge in the Store and let us know what you think. As always, leave a review for the app in the Store too to help the developer.

  • GetThemAll - Video Downloader is not bad either
  • Sweet
  • This doesn't list all file formats for download, such as youtube VP9.2. So, it's useless, have to use youtube-dl.exe
  • lol, ok nerd
  • 😓 💔
  • Sadly, most of us were chased off to Android and edge isn't available for it. Miss the integration between edge on my phone and surface book.
  • well that's too bad for you. I'm enjoying it on my Windows 10 devices.
  • well that's your own fault for going "completely Android"
  • This isn't for Windows 10 Mobile anyway, so I'm not sure what Android has to do with it.
  • suck for you then, I guess?
  • I wish extensions were available for mobile
  • MOBILE, what is that? Must be something great and new?
  • Great! I am curious what if Microsoft bring Edge to Android/ iOS. Would that helps out with the Edge visibility? I believe some users who uses this on their Windows machine may want to use the same browser in their handset. Like me using my950xl, I am pretty pleased to use the same browser as it works and sync perfectly between devices.
  • I don't understand why people are using chrome.Because it runs like a ****,looks like a ****
  • you forgot 'and smells like a ****'
  • I, too, do not use it since we have Edge. But since Chrome is mainstay in their mobile devices, they will install Chrome the first thing when they buy a new PC.
  • No,  because for the most part,  android and ios does not rely on their browsers like windows 10 moible does.  IOS / ANDROID users have dedicated apps for everything.  again,  unlike windows 10 moible.  
  • Steve, for iOS and Android people around me, they use browser for things they do not want to download the app for. My comment was based on real experience in my daily life and you cannot invalid my case. Minority or majority does not matter, it is real situation around my society.
  • just ignore that guy
  • Stylish, where are you....?
  • Shame extensions are buggy as all out on edge, and won't install for loads of people. Otherwise it'd be great to see more. 
  • works fine for me
  • Heh... It's already NOT working on the very first YouTube Video I tried it on =)

  • Since the site was changed, I can't direct reply to someone, havng issues.... But for those wanting Edge on Android or iOS, why?  On my 950, Edge is horrible.  I am so SICK of seeing error messages when it won't load a page.  My old S5A loads everything on Chrome, no problem.  The desktop version of Edge seems better, but I don't use it much.  But of course, since Microsoft focuses on Android and iOS apps first, I'm sure it would be better.  But of course, then they would have to make Edge a standalone app and not tied to the OS.  That would just be silly, right???
  • I could work up some excitement if Edge actually worked on my Surface. It opens and then freezes. There is no obvious way to reinstall or fix it. Wonderful. I have switched to Opera. Having originally reverted to IE11. So, instead of writing about extensions what about writing about how to fix Edge?
