What a POS. Paste in a URL straight from Youtube and the app just sits there like you haven't done a thing.

ANYTHING from Wondershare is adware. They put stuff on your system to collect information and spam you later. I've deleted all their crap from my systems. This little guy was last.

Excellent app! Works flawlessly. I didn't encounter any problem. The only glitch is - copy/paste URL manualy. Thank you MacX YouTube Downloader.

Folks,
If you didn't happen to notice, this product comes from Digiarty, the same group that sells MacX DVD Ripper Pro, the shameless copy cat ripoff of Mac DVDRipper Pro. Read some of the commentary for MacX DVD Ripper Pro https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42826/macx-dvd-ripper-pro, remember that it's the same company that offers this product, and decide if you want to patronize the company and its products.

I'm not saying this software does or doesn't work, or how well, I have no idea, never tried it. that's why this post is submitted as a Comment, not a Review. I'm simply pointing out to everyone's attention who the maker is, and you can make your own decisions.

Did you click "analyze" (alternately just copy link then click "paste and analyze"? Never had a problem with it.

Oh, yes, tried every way possible to get the URL in, including typing in the Youtube character string by hand. Even read TFM. Nothing got the app to respond.

A bit of chaos at Digiarty Software.

3.1.19 is broken. They offer 3.2 on http://www.macxdvd.com/free-youtube-video-downloader-mac/free-update.htm?run.myoutubedl but when you download you still get 3.1.19. Install, open, get another update notice and find yourself in an endless loop.

Maybe I should stick with MacTubes.
