Certainly, you will have seen a video on the web and need to download it. There is the possibility to perform this operation, be it a video on Facebook or YouTube. There are many solutions, many of which are impractical and functional. I have always used web services to do this kind of operations, but they are not very intuitive and do not allow advanced management of the download process. For this reason, I started looking for a good solution to download videos from YouTube on macOS and I decided to try iTube Studio for Mac.

The software is a complete platform of video downloaders for Mac. Unlike many web services, iTube Studio is a program to be installed locally on your Mac and allows you to manage the download from more than 1000 sites. So there is not only YouTube, but also other services known as Facebook, Vimeo, Dailymotion and VEVO. In addition, there is not only the function of youtube video downloader for Mac but also allows the conversion in mp3 format of the videos on the well-known Google platform.

At the end of the download of the movies, it is also possible to manage the conversion phase in a congenial format, or the reproduction of the same through the player integrated in the software. To better understand the ease of use of iTube Studio for Mac and the potential that it is able to offer, below I would like to show you a guide on how to download a video from YouTube, how to convert it to mp3 format and how to convert a movie.
