Works very well and easily in most cases but very so often there is a video which just will not download. Would be happy to provide URL or log to developer.

One of the best YT downloader for free who I found for the Mac.

I try several downloaders to after installing this application, who looks a bit older then some of the other ones, but it's still the best one. No ads, no over 100 connections to several services, no crashes and a simple interface.

You can search for videos directly in the app, you can play videos directly and with simple clicks you can download the videos with a format who you prefer. And if you didn't found the same video who you found on YouTube, simply hit "cmd + o" on your Keyboard and fill in the URL to the video from the YT page. Now it will show you the video and at the bottom some options to safe it on your HD.

A half star is missed for the overall rating, because a bit better interface would be great.

Anyway... You can buy a YT downloader or you can using this one here who's for free. Thanks to the developer for his work.

This is fantastic software, no need to learn. Don't believe the negative reviews, they are killing the software for their selfish reasons.

And the same.
if you block Google tracking for other reasons, wont work so the inter-rlationship of this app isnt well identified. Who wants to 'search' for vids you already have a displayed url for?
Help, All I see is a list of keyboard shortcuts and About Playlist.
Doesnt do its described purpose effectively or efficiently IMHO so who needs yet another player>

I downloaded this app yesterday, and it's NOT easy to use, although I printed out the manual (waste of paper) and I simply cannot get this app to download and retain videos no matter what I do. The manual is no help. Blech!!

Oh that's right you're a shill posting a fake bad review so you act like you have the intellect of the fools depicted in the commercials that use sporks to clean their ears until the ear vacuum saved them!

Seriously? I downloaded the app and within two minutes found and downloaded a video. I didn't have to read any documentation (although it's there - HTML based, by the way). Actually, I'd say 30 seconds of that time was spent in decompressing the archive, so make that one and a half minutes!

If you have that much difficulty with an app such as this, I submit that maybe computers aren't for you...

Version 3.1.4 simply won't launch at all for me. Deleted all prefs, still nothing. I got some download errors with 3.1.3 but at least it launched. - 3.4Gz iMac i7 with 16GB RAM.

Just downloaded a fresh copy to my MacBook Pro. Won't launch there either. Both machines running 10.7.3. Something definitely broken with this update.

MacTubes won't switch to next video in a playlist and won't auto-play it when QuickTime/Perian is selected as player. Has been reported numerous times. Please, fix already.

Macman8 had trouble on 16 Mar 2011
I have always loved this application; however, in recent weeks, less than 10 percent of my downloads complete successfully. They often stop between 12 and 25 percent. I have had no changes in applications or plugins to cause a conflict. I have a PPC, using Mac OS 10.4.11 with 3.5 GB of RAM. I am, however, on a 56k dial-up connection, since I cannot afford high-speed. Still, I have been able to download dozens of MP4 files in the past. Any ideas for me here? I did visit the developer's site. My Flash is version 9, so that's not the problem. I'm at a loss as to why this is happening. Last night, I did get 2 of 10 MP4's to download.
