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

New Mac App by FLVTO…

to Legally Download and Watch YouTube Videos on Your Mac

Advertising

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.
