Ever wished you could save a video from the Internet? Search no more, Downie is what you're looking for. Easily download videos from thousands of different sites.

Key Features

Supports many sites - currently supports over 1,000 different sites (including YouTube, Youku, Bilibili, Vimeo, etc.) and the number is rapidly growing.

4K video YouTube support - unlike many other YouTube downloaders, Downie supports HD video on YouTube, up to 4K.

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.

Frequent updates - Don‘t wait weeks for new sites to be supported, or bugs to be fixed! Downie is updated about once a week with new features, sites supported, etc.

International - not only that Downie supports country-specific sites, it is localized into various languages. If your language is missing, contact us - we can offer you a free license in exchange for a translation.

New in Downie 3

UI Redesign – the UI has been redesigned from the ground up. It’s faster, more fluent and visually pleasing.

Menu Bar Icon – control the downloads from the menu bar – without the need to switch away from your current work.

Improved HLS Support – HLS streams download up to 4 times faster.

DASH Support – DASH streams are now supported.

Major Postprocessing Improvements – postprocessing of some downloads can take only a few seconds instead of minutes thanks to Downie analyzing the video prior to the conversion!

Simple Mode – if your preference is to keep the UI as simple as possible, there’s a simple mode for you!

File Grouping by Site and Playlist – all downloads can now be sorted into folders based on where you downloaded them from or from which playlist are they.

Delayed Queue Start – schedule your downloads for the middle of the night so that you’re not hogging the bandwidth for the rest of the family!

Popup Window Support in User-Guided Extraction – the User-Guided Extraction now optionally supports popup windows so that you can sign into sites that open login in a separate window.

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!
