THIS IS MALWARE - DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

This application will hijack the default search engine and start page in all your browsers and install toolbars in some. In Firefox it will install suspect eBay and Amazon "helper" plug-ins and automatically enable them whatever those do.

I had to cleanup all the added search, other extensions added to Chrome, I hate that, and don't think I was asked to accept them.

However, this is the only and quickest app to do one thing I occasionally need to do - convert videos the only format my tv will accept on a usb stick - xvid.avi.

Yes other apps do it, but unreliably, overly complex, or slowly.

Installs loads of chrome / safari extensions / malwares ?

DO NOT INSTALL unless you are ready to spend time cleaning your system afterwards.

works as a basic YT video downloader, just beware as it installs a whole host of malware in to all of your browsers - changes the home page and installs a load of rogue extensions in Firefox and Safari. Disgusting and outrageous frankly. Oh, and ignore the previous reviews, any idiot can tell they're bogus and made up

Yeah, Right ... I'm the paid lackey of GreenTree, don't have a mind of my own, haven't tried any of the competitors and am just a mindless drone repeating what I'm told.
Despite what Virtuous says, I paid for the upgrade and am reasonably satisfied with what I got, the puppy does what it says and is the best of the standalone YouTube downloaders I've come across (in browser plug-ins like FlashGot tend to offer much more comprehensive site coverage and be useful across more file types, but even they have their limitations and are easily blocked at source) and I stand by my 'bogus' review below. I've currently got version 1.6 installed and haven't had a problem with it.

I didn't mean Frank-O'Connor by the way! I meant the 2 reviews with the clearly bogus yahoo email addresses

DON'T UPDATE TO THIS VERSION!
Classic bait and switch to make you pay for the PRO version. Will change your browser settings and install "subsidizing" extensions for Safari users! Beware gang!

The best of all the YouTube downloaders for the Mac. Uniformly quick, stable, reliable, capable of handling multiple simultaneous streams, and updated regularly by the author. (It's currently in version 1.3 as I write) Recommended unreservedly.

The perfect youtube downloader. I tried many other similar apps but this one is the best. I can download entire playlists from youtube with only one click. This youtube downloader for mac also converts the files in many formats. So you can use YTD as a downloader and converter at the same time. 5 full stars for YTD

I enjoy using this free youtube downloader for mac. It has a simple interface that allows you to do 3 things in one: download convert and play media files. The best thing about this app is that it allows me to download youtube videos and playlists without any limitations!
