In this tutorial we show you how to do this with the free app iSkysoft iTube Studio for Mac. In a few short years YouTube has managed to become the number one site on the internet for video content. Here you can find everything from technology tutorials to subtitled French cats playing patty-cake, sometimes both at the same time.
Most of us have our favourites that we like to show friends when they come over, or share on social networks, but always having to be online to do this seems a little restrictive.
Thankfully there are several free apps that allow you to take this content and download it directly to your computer. Of course we wouldn't want you to fall foul of the ever aggressive copyright protection laws, so to be safe it's always a good idea to contact the YouTube member who uploaded the video originally and ask for their permission before you plunder the archives.
First of all you'll need to download an app, so head over to YouTube downloader for Mac to Download the app.
Once this is done go to the Applications menu in Finder and launch iSkysoft iTube Studio for Mac. The app looks exactly the same as the YouTube interface you'd expect to find if you navigated straight to the site, except if you look closely there is a Download button positioned just to the left of the URL bar at the top of the window.
