2. WinX HD Video Converter for Mac
WinX is a popular third-party alternative for YouTube downloads. It seems that the company has made it their mission to cover as many platforms and formats as possible. This abundance of choice is a double-edged sword. Some say it makes WinX the best YouTube video downloader; others claim that it’s overly confusing. Regardless, it’s a solid, quality-assured product.
Keep in mind that WinX is, essentially, a paid product: the meager trial limit expires quickly, urging you to purchase the license. And 30$ is just a discount price; if you’re unlucky enough, you’ll have to cough up a lofty 45$.
