Ahead of Soundcloud and Vevo, YouTube remains the biggest streaming platform. There are a few different options out there for anyone looking to download YouTube audio only to Mac. Some are online, some download to ogg file types, some convert downloaded files. That said, we have to recommend desktop apps as the most reliable options. A desktop app can be relied on to offer improved levels of security and privacy. On top of that, desktop solutions such as Mediahuman benefit from regular updates, ensuring your experience is being continually optimised. We recommend Airy to anyone looking for a great downloader. It’s an effective tool that lets you grab audio, video and even subtitles at the click of a button, and carry out conversion tasks once downloaded. Airy offers impressive speeds and a whole host of other features that guarantee the fastest, most convenient downloads possible.

Add-on Downloader for Chrome: You’ll need to use third party software if you’re looking for a YouTube only audio no video Android solution to download content from YouTube or Dailymotion using Chrome - their app store doesn’t host any downloading apps. However, we can confidently recommend Crosspilot to anyone looking for a way to download audio only, or video as well. It allows you to install Opera addons to your Chrome browser, letting you take your pick of other download addons and download in 4K and other definitions.
Add-on Downloader for Safari: Unlike other browsers, Safari doesn’t actually have a huge range of different addons to choose from. Apple tends to keep a close grip on any kind of software used to download copyrighted content. However, Airy is the ideal solution for anyone using an Apple device who wants to download songs or videos. Airy lets you get audio only or video as well, and only takes a few seconds. You can also use it in a similar manner to an addon. Once installed, you just need to choose the ‘Integrate into browser’ option. This will provided you with a bookmark that works in exactly the same way as an extension or addon, letting you download to MP3, M4a and other formats.
