It is not freeware. It requires a "donation" in order to unlock downloading and exporting videos. Didn't used it. I hate when people lies.

I was delighted with this! An alternative to extinct Mactubes and it is faster with better rez. And I don't know what's all this about donating but apparently thats for music?

The app was upgraded to be compatible with OS X Yosemite. Unfortunately, it crashes as soon as it starts up. So it is not compatible. It is still a beta at version 0.5.1. And obviously it is seriously flawed. Hopefully the developer can fix it to a usable state. Here is the crash message: Exception Name: NSInternalInconsistencyException Description: Invalid parameter not satisfying: stateDirectoryURL != nil User Info: (null) 0 CoreFoundation 0x00007fff8fd4866c __exceptionPreprocess + 172 1 libobjc.A.dylib 0x00007fff8a4a776e objc_exception_throw + 43 2 CoreFoundation 0x00007fff8fd4844a +[NSException raise:format:arguments:] + 106 3 Foundation 0x00007fff834543a9 -[NSAssertionHandler handleFailureInMethod:object:file:lineNumber:description:] + 195 4 AppKit 0x00007fff83e8def3 -[NSPersistentUIPreservedStateDirectory initWithStateDirectory:] + 132 5 AppKit 0x00007fff83e962ca +[NSPersistentUIManager(NSCarbonMethods) copyPersistentCarbonWindowDictionariesForBundleID:] + 231 6 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a89625b _HIPersistentUICopyPersistentCarbonWindowDictionariesForBundleID + 75 7 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a896200 _ZL34GetPersistenceDictionariesAtLaunchv + 52 8 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a8961c6 _Z29WindowStateInitFirstEventTimev + 9 9 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a895ba3 _FirstEventTime + 52 10 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a895a35 RunCurrentEventLoopInMode + 49 11 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a89576e ReceiveNextEventCommon + 179 12 HIToolbox 0x00007fff8a8956ab _BlockUntilNextEventMatchingListInModeWithFilter + 71 13 AppKit 0x00007fff83e94f81 _DPSNextEvent + 964 14 AppKit 0x00007fff83e94730 -[NSApplication nextEventMatchingMask:untilDate:inMode:dequeue:] + 194 15 AppKit 0x00007fff83e88593 -[NSApplication run] + 594 16 AppKit 0x00007fff83e73a14 NSApplicationMain + 1832 17 YouView 0x00000001000014bc start + 52 18 ??? 0x0000000000000001 0x0 + 1

Finally an YouTube app like the one from apple TV. My ATV died and replaced it with a 2011 Mini and I try to emulate some apps. Works on my 2011 Mini (Lion) and 2008 MBP (SL). The major plus is that you can access your account playlist. (no need to make them all over again) The major minus is that it only show max. 50 videos per playlist (not 200 as max from YouTube). I will donate even tho i don't care about DL feature. Great app. Make a nicer UI, increase the number of videos displayed to 200 and take my money :)

Dev says on his webzone that he's working on a successor called MotiOnline. So does that mean that YouView will be discontinued eventually? What would be the use of donating for full features if the app will be abandoned in the near future?

I really like this app - it immediately did everything i wanted, & the developer answered my questions right away. It's still in beta stage, which makes its performance even more impressive.

If you were logged into your YouTube Account, you'll likely have to remove and re-add the account. 403 = permissions denied.

Review: This is the best youtube viewer/downloader IMO. I have tried them all, this has the most features, it's minimal, and has many nice features. You have access to you're channel, favorites and subscriptions. This alone is great, and not available on similar apps I have paid 5x the price for. You also have an extension for when viewing any YouTube links in Safari, they are instantly captured and auto play in the app. The app runs in the full window, unlike other apps that have the video and a sidebar or something open at the same time and no way to disable. And lastly, if you donate to him, I donated the minimum of 2-3 bucks I think it was, the app will download and convert the videos for you. And it does these two things very well, fast downloads and lots of video settings. The only thing I noticed bug wise, was when seeking with the nav bar on the bottom, sometimes, the bar will jump out of place and stay in the middle of the screen until you close the app. And also comments under video option does not work for me. Don't know why this app get mediocre rating...it's a beta, and the guy is asking for a measly 2 bucks for his download and converting features. I'm loving this app, I use it daily, and I look forward to the updates.
