What would happen if you could scour YouTube, find videos and music you like, and download them to your Mac for later playback? You’d get free videos and music and Google would not be as profitable. Here’s how to do it.
Airy. Downloads. Extracts.
Videos and music are available on line but require that we remain tethered to our devices to view and listen.
Airy is a Mac app that lets you find YouTube videos and save them to your Mac, including HD (MP4, WebM, FLV, and more).
And, if there’s a music track in the video, Airy lets you extract that, too.
That means you can build an entire collection of videos and music on your Mac, which can store items in iTunes, which can move them to iPhone or iPad, and display them on Apple TV.
All that’s required to operate Airy is the YouTube URL. Drop in the URL, select the options (MP4 size, or MP3) and Airy does the rest.
Airy’s controls couldn’t be much easier to use, either.
Air is lightweight yet powerful and can download multiple URLs at the same time. If there’s one thing I miss it’s video and audio file management, but iTunes works, and so does any decent file manager.
I don’t know of an easier way to get a large video clip or audio collection without it being part of an inheritance.
