Hi Bashir, this powerful tool can support more that 100 sites. For detailed information about supported sites, you can refer to .
And, how many sites will allow download with the iTube Studio for Mac? I\'d be interested in downloading TV shows from such sites as Hulu and maybe even Crackle. Is that possible? Anyway, I love the idea of using this software and will download and try out right away to see what it can do for me.
