YTaco - a simple and free video downloader for MacOS.


YTaco is a free video downloader for MacOS.

YTaco supports simple conversion; automatic mp3 conversion, and automatic addition to your iTunes library.

Ytaco also supports playlist downloading. This can be disabled if wished.

This project was created out of my frustration for the lack of a free downloading client for MacOS - while there already is a command-line software that does this called "youtube-dl", a graphical interface would be nice.


Download

Instructions
1. Download from above.
2. Extract to /Applications, or anywhere else.
3. Launch, paste link into bottom box, and press "Download".

If you are having "Move to Trash" errors, this is because of GateKeeper blocking an unrecognised developer (which is me).

A temporary bypass is as following:
Open a Terminal window and type (which disables GateKeeper)
sudo spctl --master-disable
Now launch YTaco! You can re-enable GateKeeper afterwards with
sudo spctl --master-enable
