Airy is a download manager designed for Mac to allow you to download and convert clips from YouTube, a popular video sharing website. This application comes in handy to users who wish to watch clips from the aforementioned webpage in offline mode by using their default video players.
All you need to do in order to fetch YouTube clips you like is to provide the URL for the video, choose the output preferred format, and click the Download button. The app will immediately start the download process and save the results to the selected destination folder (you can choose an output folder by going to Preferences menu).
In my testing, the program worked fine. It offered quality videos and didn't use many CPU resources while downloading clips.
However, the number of supported formats for the results is limited to 4 (FLV, 3GP, MP4, and MP3). Another thing I don't like that it doesn't bring you an integrated browser or a search tool to look for the YouTube videos (other apps of this kind offer you these features).
Briefly, I'd say you can find better solutions for downloading and converting YouTube clips.
- Simple to use
- Supports batch processing
- Lets you choose the preferred output quality
- Lacks an integrated browser or a search tool
- Supports only four output formats (MP4, FLV, 3GP, and MP3)
