Simply, write to technical support, which will consider your proposal within 24 hours and if the site meets the requirements they will add it to the list.

Also, we tried to install the extension in Safari and a download button appeared next to the address bar, so when you click on it while watching any streaming video, it will automatically start downloading.

Downie has browser extensions for Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera.

Downie supports HD video on Youtube and other sites, up to 4K or 1080p if it’s available, you can select quality or specifically limit it.
So if you don’t need 4K or 1080p video, you can lower the resolution in case you’re worried about how much space the video will take up on your computer. Another special feature of Downie is post-processing uploaded videos into various formats.
A video podcast of your fav blogger can be adapted into an MP3 and listened to on your iTunes while you drive to work.


If you are a Mac user and you are looking for one of the advanced internet video downloaders, Pulltube might be a good alternative.

The interface of the software is not very intuitive and can be a concern for beginners. So we took apart a few features and realized what makes it unique.

With support for downloads from over 1000 sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion, Soundcloud, Instagram, Youku, Bandcam you won’t be amazed. But what about the ability to trim up your video and audio right in the app?

Let’s say you watched 1:30 of Apple’s 2022 presentation and are curious about the new Apple Watch Series 8 and want to share it with your friends to discuss it.
Trimming mode lets you edit out the part you want without using third-party software.
Or trim the video with timecode.

Don’t forget that most high-resolution YouTube videos are now stored in WebM format. There is a format selection option in Pulltube.

The ability to upload videos with subtitles or download subtitles separately has become a real boon for those working in the media industry or polyglots.
Once you get a link to your video with Pulltube, click the CC button in the lower left corner and set the app to download subtitles.

You can customize Pulltube to fit your needs, choose keyboard shortcuts and gestures, set up extensions for your browser, save the visible frame as a thumbnail, etc. There are no limits to the number of useful Pulltube features.
