Download Videos from YouTube: iSkysoft iTube Studio Review

Posted by Rahul Gupta
Frankly speaking, having a Mac device can sometimes make you infuriated. Though it has all the necessary looks and design, what you need is an independent ecosystem and freedom to access any content. Mac devices are terrible as they do not give you the freedom to download free videos from YouTube, Streaming websites, etc. 

Someday, Apple might release or provide a feature for all the users to download videos for mac but till now, most of the users feel unprivileged. As they say, ‘Need is the Mother of all Inventions,' many companies are satisfying the needs of all the Mac users by providing software that can download free music and videos right on their MacBook or Mac Pro.

iSkysoft iTube Studio Review
iSkySoft’s iTube Studio is an application that lets you download free videos from thousands of websites like YouTube, Hulu, etc. So without any further talking, let’s start the review of this remarkable downloading client for Mac as well as Windows users.

Getting Started

You can start by downloading the iSkysoft iTube Studio Client for both Windows & Mac. Though it is a premium software, the company offers a free trial version for all the users who want to test out the features. You can download the free trial directly from the official website.

After setting up, you can start downloading the videos from the iSkysoft iTube Studio in two standard ways. You can directly start the downloading process by pasting the URLs directly into the application. Also, you can use the browser plugin to directly download the videos from online streaming websites like YouTube, Hulu, BBC videos, etc. The plugin automatically integrates a download button which you can use to download the video directly.

You can save the videos in different resolutions according to your needs, and you are also entitled to download only the audio of the videos. This feature often comes handy if you want to download podcasts, any audio-centric video or any music song. 

To be honest, using iSkysoft iTube Studio was pretty simple and I was able to download several videos directly from the app within a few minutes. The interface of the client is very minimal, and you can download videos in different formats and resolutions, depending on your device needs. You’re greeted with the dashboard where you can directly download the videos by pasting the video URL.


  • Download & Convert in More Than 153 Formats: - The best feature of the application is that you can download and convert the videos to more than 153 available formats.
