Downie features

Download YouTube videos

Downie lets you download from YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram, and over 1,200 other websites. If there’s video content on a web page, you can trust Downie to save it onto your Mac.

Search right in the video downloader

No need to switch from Downie to your browser to search for the content you want. Type the search query into the app’s search field, and it will promptly find the video for you.

Save 4K YouTube videos

Unlike many other YouTube downloaders, Downie can handle even 4K resolution videos. That means you can download high-quality, high-definition videos from YouTube or anywhere else on the web.

Download MP4 or just the audio

If you don’t need the entire video file, Downie can save only the audio track from that file. Or, if you want all your videos in the MP4 format, you can set Downie to convert them automatically.

Simply drag-and-drop an URL

Downie is brilliantly simple: just copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop the URL to the video and it will download automatically. Even if there’s text and other content on the page, Downie will detect the video and save it for you.

Post-process with Permute

Downie seamlessly integrates with Permute, a powerful media converter. To convert the video you’ve just downloaded to a different format or stitch parts of it into one file just send it to Permute and pick it up in that app.
