Downie may seem like a simple drag-and-drop app – and it is and isn’t at the same time! It is designed to be simple to use – just drag and drop a link onto Downie and it will download the video on that site. It isn’t simply another YouTube-downloader: Downie supports at this moment over 160 different sites! The full list may be viewed in Downie’s preferences, under the Sites tab.

If you are using a poor internet connection, trying to visualize videos streamlined online might not work properly since the content is loaded too slowly. Downie is a simple Mac app that can help you download those videos to your computer, and then watch them by using your default media player.
- Supports many sites – currently support over 160 different sites (including YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and the number is rapidly growing.
- Postprocessing – need your video in MP4 for iTunes? Or want just the audio track? No problem, Downie can handle this for you automatically!
- Quick support – I respond to emails usually within 24 hours and often add support for requested sites in the next update.
- Fast updates – Downie is updated about once a week with new features, sites supported, etc.
- 4K video YouTube support – unlike many other YouTube downloaders, Downie supports HD video on YouTube, up to 4K.
Here are a few tips for using Downie:
- To start, you can drag a link from any browser either on Downie’s window, or the icon in the Dock.
- If you have more links or links within some text, just drop the whole thing onto Downie – it will scan the text for links.
- You can use copy and paste as well – just press Command-O in Downie and you can insert all the links in the world!
