Excellent youtube downloader for mac; highest marks. The best way I have ever used to capture and preserve the multitude of great videos out there. I am constantly recommending this app to my friends and family who might otherwise have heard of it, always appreciated and more useful than most people realize. I hope it continues to function well and prosper, as well as always adapting to the ever-changing landscape of online video.
