YouTube Downloader for Mac is a free YouTube video downloader. It is a very lightweight tool that should let you download videos from YouTube quite easily. The application consists of a single window. Here, you will have to click on the "Paste URL" button to start a new download. When you do that, the URL of the video that you have on your clipboard will be selected and a new download dialog will be displayed. This window is called "Customize Setting" and there are two things that you can change. First, you can choose between three quality settings: best quality, optimal parameters and minimal size. Second, you choose where to save the video file. After you click on "OK", the download will be started. In my testing, I was unable to get YouTube Downloader for Mac to download a single video. Every time I added a video, I got an error message that read "Ooops Fail to Download!". I did test it with five different videos, but to no avail.
In short, this application doesn't seem to be working right now. It is free, so maybe when it gets fixed, it should be a good option. I'll keep an eye open for future updates.
