Pulltube, a video and audio downloader for Mac

2 min read

Your video downloading shouldn’t be limited. Sometimes you need to grab a video tutorial on Vimeo, the other times — a YouTube playlist. Or maybe you’re learning a new language and want to download subtitles for your favorite movies. Pulltube is the only media downloader you’ll ever need, whatever the task. 

Instantly grab video, audio, and playlists from anywhere

With Pulltube, an advanced video downloader for Mac, you can save video, audio, and playlists from YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion, Youku, Instagram, Soundcloud, and many other platforms. Once you find a file that you want, copy the URL or drag it directly into the Pulltube window to start downloading. If your video is a part of a playlist, downloader will recognize it and allow you to download an entire list or specific files in batch.

Your media files, in the right format 

Pulltube supports 4K, 8K, HD, and 60fps video file formats. Depending on whether you want to download video or audio, the app enables you to flexibly manage the outputs — you can choose to save MP4, MP3, or M4A. So no external media converter needed, it’s all covered by Pulltube. 

Convert and download videos

To customize the quality of a downloaded file, go to HQ in the bottom right corner of the Pulltube window. If you want to add/remove subtitles, click on CC in the bottom left corner. 

Extract a part of a video 

If you only need to capture one scene, what’s the point of downloading the whole movie? With Pulltube, you can trim videos and save only specific parts of it. Paste the link and click on the scissors button below it. This will take you to the Trimming Mode where you can manually set clip duration. Once you’re ready, click the Trim button and Pulltube will save the desired output.
