  • Four Must-Have Essential MacOS Apps
    Downie is a versatile downloader, now in its 4th generation. It can be used as a browser plugin, allowing you to download almost anything from the web.

  • Does anyone know a way of downloading the Deep Dive videos from Bandcamp?
    Definitely don’t use any of those screen recording apps - that’s just brute forcing it, you’re reencoding the content and losing a ton of video and audio quality. Any embedded video online (unless is uses DRM, which is not this case) can be extracted and downloaded in original quality. If you’re on a Mac, I strongly recommend using Downie, it’s a great piece of software. Source: about 1 year ago

    If that sentence sounds confusing then you might want to check out some wrapper apps that are much easier to use. Downie is a paid option, but a lot of people seem to like it. There are other options, but they all use youtube dl internally and function the same. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Safe YouTube to mp3/4 Converter?
    If you’re on macOS and want something more visual than Terminal Downie is more than enough to do everything you need to in terms of pulling down a local version just about any video posted online. The same dev also makes Permute which is a converter app as well if you want to get everything from one source and be done with it. Source: over 1 year ago

    2) Download the application "Downie." Https:// There is a free 2 week trial. There could be other pieces of software that would do this, but I was able to do it with Downie, and it's a great app anyway, so I recommend paying the $20 after the 2 week trial expires.
