iSkysoft iTube Studio for Mac is a brilliant application and must have for mac users. I really love this application since it was awesome features. Pretty Cool!
I loved using the downloader to get quicktime videos. But then discovered the iSkysoft iMedia Converter Deluxe for Mac and used that to burn the videos on DVD. It's a winning combination and now I can enjoy Quicktime videos on a device of my choosing or on DVD. Either way, what fun!
I've used this software numerous times to download Youtube videos and then convert to Quicktime for play. I've never had any problems and so far, one of the best pieces of software I have on my computer. Really happy to tell all my friends about it.
Most of the downloaded YouTube videos are FLV files, but with this converter, you can directly convert them to QuickTime format. What else, this converter comes with Download tab which you can use it to download YouTube videos. If you want to edit the videos, just drag the videos to the program and click the Edit button on the right of the video list to go to edit window.
Thanks from a very happy Android fan. Being able to make the videos compatible with Android has been a real life saver for me. Before when I had an iPhone, it seemed everything worked. But it's been hard finding software to make conversions for Android. Now I feel confident with my purchase and can enjoy my Android device again.

Great even for the novice computer user. I'm not very tech savvy and was worried that I wouldn't be able to make this software work for me. But it was just so easy. The interface is intuitive and within just a few minutes of installing, I had downloaded and converted a Youtube video to QuickTime format. Not sure what I was worried about now. Couldn't have been easier. Thanks for this amazingly easy to use software. I am so very impressed. I am telling everyone.
I have two questions. You mentioned how you can convert these to Quicktime. Those are MOV files, right? I've always had trouble downloading those, so maybe this software will help. Also, I noticed in your image above how it has a tab for editing. Is it possible to edit these files once they are downloaded and if so in what application could I edit them?
Easy video conversions! Downloading free videos from Youtube is easy and you can accomplish this with almost any free video downloader. But converting the downloaded videos into Quicktime or MP4 is a little harder to do. And, I worried for awhile I'd always be stuck with the large clunky Youtube videos downloaded, when all I wanted to do was convert and play on other devices. But then I found out about the iSkysoft video converter and was able to make the conversions I wanted to my downloaded video files. I've been a happy customer since then.
