Introducing the New Mac App to Download and Watch Youtube Audio and Video Files

Introducing the New Mac App to Download and Watch Youtube Audio and Video Files

Mac is making it easier for us to watch quality video, offering us all the means necessary in order to have a great viewing experience. A great innovation from Apple, is the retina display which allows you to view anything displayed on the Mac screen, perfectly from every angle. Apple reduced the reflective surface by removing the front glass and by adding a thick anti-reflective coating. With improved features such as better color accuracy through its 14.7 million pixels and contrast ratio, the 27 inch diagonal offers everything the user needs for a complete visual experience.

A Bit About Your Favorite Tunes

YouTube is the world’s most popular online video site, and throughout time, it started becoming more intuitive to user’s needs, including and improving the user’s possibility to make playlists and save videos for later, create and personalize their own channel, but it forgot about mobility. The YouTube phone app works great on your phone, the only downside being that it can’t run in the background, allowing you to use your phone freely while listening to your favorite tunes.

Having your playlists or favorite videos to listen to or share with your friends no matter the place or time could always come in handy. The same as being able to listen on your Mac or iPod to the songs that maybe you can’t find on iTunes. You and me both know that when you’re absolutely crazy about a song you try to get it no matter what, searching through tens of sites that would allow you to purchase and download the track.

Nowadays we are used to ease of access to content and we expect to get it no matter where we are, that’s why when we end up with no Wi-Fi at a cafe or in any place for that matter, we feel disappointed.

3 Reasons Why You’d Want to Take Your Video and Audio With You On Your Mac

Here they are. Although feel free to add your own.

1. Slow Wi-Fi Connection

We all know how annoying it is to experience a slow Wi-Fi connection while you’re out and have your laptop with you. The video stops every couple of seconds to load and your whole experience becomes a blur of interrupted sound.

2. Ease of Access

If you have no internet connection, you can still listen to your favorite tunes or watch your favorite vlogs or videos by taking them with you from home.

3. Look Better Prepared

Demonstrations and quality guarantee during presentations by avoiding any loading interruptions caused by slow Internet connection or maybe lack of access because of the place’s Wi-Fi connectivity settings

There are a lot of apps that allow you to download YouTube songs or videos but as you know, they usually miss that little something that makes them re-usable, or they are simply not that Mac friendly. Recently, I discovered an app called FLVTO. It is really easy to download and is very user friendly with a familiar interface for all mac users. The app exports automatically to my iTunes list everything that I download, saving me the time spent with browsing through folders .

The other reason why this app has the edge over the others in that it’s not only YouTube you can download videos and songs from, but also other sites such as Vimeo, Daily Motion, Metacafe, Facebook etc. offering you a high download quality and a wide variety of sources to choose from where you get your content. It’s really easy to install and use so let me show you how to get your music faster. You can use FLVTO online or download the app and install it on the computer.

On www.flvto.biz, press the Download button to download the converter installation kit on your Mac. Run the Exe file and allow it to start installing. Once the wizard pops up you follow its steps. You can take a look at the FLVTO installation guide for a better idea of how the process looks.

Once installation is done, you are free to explore the application and enjoy it. Here you can find a more detailed way of use for Mac users that guides you through the first time you will use the app.

Takeaways

No matter the platform we use, at one point there’s always something we would like to share or have to show when it pops up in a discussion. FLVTO is an easy to use application that helps you get your favorite music and videos at their highest quality for you to enjoy on your Mac or PC. Whether you have Mac, Windows or Linux, the app works fluently and allows you to download content legally and free of charge.

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

Minimizing Tabs

Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

Incognito Mode

Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

  1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
  2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
  3. Download extension New Incognito Window

This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

Save Webpages as PDF Files

Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

Open Recently-closed Tabs

Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

Solve Mathematical Problems

Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

Play Media Files

Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

Stay Focus(e)d

Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Grammarly for Editing

Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!

Loom

There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

Chrome Calendar Extension

No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

Final Thoughts

Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
