This Mac application was specially designed to help you download video clips from YouTube to your local directories. The program is very simple to handle, supports batch processing, and can download 1080p as well as 4K videos without any quality loss.
The first thing I suggest you to do after launching the utility is configure its settings accordingly (choose destination folder, output profile, etc.). Then, you can start adding YouTube URLs the Download list and wait for the results.
I like the fact that the app comes with an option to choose the preferred video resolution for the output file or let the app automatically select the best alternative instead (it's marked as Best within the Resolution panel). Furthermore, you can configure the program to automatically add all downloaded files to your iTunes library.
Only two things I don't like about this download manager: you need to update the app in order to have access to its latest version and it's not free (on the homepage of the developer it says that 4Media Download YouTube Video is a freeware app).
All in all, I'd say it's worth installing this program on your Mac if the aforementioned flaws don't mean much to you. The app offers you quality results, lets you choose from various output profiles, and comes with a fair price.
