KeepVid is a free tool to download online videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo, and many other video sharing sites. KeepVid allows you just copy and paste URL to download the video. However, KeepVid is a PC only tool. It needs to use Java to capture the videos and genreate download links, which requires Microsoft .Net, so KeepVid is not compatible with Mac, including Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan and 10.10 Yosemite. But is there any KeepVid for Mac alternative available? The answer is Yes!

We highly recommend iSkysoft iTube Studio for Mac as a KeepVid for Mac alternative, which includes all the functions of KeepVid but batter than KeepVid. It fully supports the new OS X 10.11 EL Capitan and 10.10 Yosemite. And you can use it to download videos from YouTube, Vimeo, VEVO, Facebook and other 1000+ sites in one single click.

Step 3: Convert YouTube to any format

The downloaded video will be stored in the "Downloaded" tab. To convert a video, go to the "Downloaded" tab first. You'll see a "Convert" button on the right of every video. Click the "Convert" button and a window will appear for you to choose output format from. After choosing a video/audio format or a device format, click "OK" to start conversion. Before converting, it's a good idea to play the video by double clicking it, making sure it's exactly the video you want.

You may already noticed the bit Download then Convert button at the top right corner of the program interface. It allows you to directly download video to any specified format you want.

KeepVid works alright for some users, but I've never been a big fan. I always liked using the RealDownloader but as yo know that option is not available for the Mac User. Thank goodness for the iTube Studio which is the only legitimate alternative to the KeepVid software. I've never been disappointed using this and always recommend for use to friends.
Three amazing reasons to download this software and give it a try. And, I like how I can download videos from YouTube, DailyMotion, Google Video, Megavideo, Metacafe Vimeo and more. It's easy to see why this software is so very popular with users. I hope to upgrade soon.
The thing I don't like about KeepVid is how it's java based. And, java doesn't work well on my computer. It's just not a good choice. Does this software use java? I don't think it would as it's a downloadable software, not one that is hosted online. Anyway, I plan to try out this software and see how it goes. I'm sure the Keepvid alternative for Mac will be just what I'm looking for.
The first time I downloaded and used the trial version of this software, I was unsure how to use it. But watching the video tutorial made it so easy. I'm glad I got a chance to use this software and have told many friends about it so far, even on Facebook.
Glad I found this software! I started with the free trial and decided to keep it. For years, I'd used the keepvid site when using my Windows PC computer. But, after switching to a Mac Mini, I was not able to use KeepVid. This software makes it possible now.
The best thing which i liked in this tool is we can Download video by click from all popular video sites like YouTube, DailyMotion, Google Video, Megavideo, Metacafe Vimeo, etc
