Downie 4 – Easily Download Videos v4.3.7

Last Updated on October 25, 2021 by admin

Downie is the only video download for macOS you will ever need. It isn’t simply another YouTube-downloader: Downie supports at this moment over 1000 different sites! The full list may be viewed in Downie’s preferences, under the Sites tab.

Key features:
• Supports many sites – currently supports over 1,000 different sites (including YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and the number is rapidly growing.
• 4K video YouTube support – unlike many other YouTube downloaders, Downie supports HD video on YouTube, up to 4K.
• Postprocessing – need your video in MP4 for iTunes? Or want just the audio track? No problem, Downie can handle this for you automatically!
• Quick support – I respond to emails usually within 24 hours and often add support for requested sites in the next update.
• Frequent updates – Don‘t wait weeks for new sites to be supported, or bugs to be fixed! Downie is updated about once a week with new features, sites supported, etc.
• International – not only that Downie supports country-specific sites, it is localized into various languages. If your language is missing, contact us – we can offer you a free license in exchange for a translation.

Downie 4 brings many new features, main being listed here:
• Updated UI – the UI has been revised and updated, offering more options at the tip of the mouse.
• Major speed improvements – several links can now be loaded at once and YouTube videos get prepared for downloads about 6x faster than in Downie 3 (based on time required to process a 30-item YouTube playlist on iMac 27” (2019)).
• Sandbox – Downie 4 is now sandboxed for better security.
• Metadata Improvements – the metadata that Downie gathers can be written into an external JSON file for further custom processing.
• Improved User-Guided Extraction – the UGE window now has history, allows saving favorites and much more.
• Customizable Postprocessing – you can now write your own shell script to handle custom postprocessing.
• Option to Go Menu-Only – the long-awaited ability to run Downie just in the menu bar has finally arrived.
• Much, much more! – many minor improvements, like custom naming schemes, option to force MP4 downloads, better cancellation, priority flags, etc..

Requires macOS 10.12.6+

v4.2.9 from TNT release has the Safari Plugin broken, bad signature makes it being loaded/unloaded on loop, (check the button appearing and disappering every second.. console logs shows error about signature validation and unloads it, thn safari reloads, then signature checker unloads.. and they fight forever this way..) .. The HCiSO release is perfect, they mainteined the original author signature on the Safari Plugin, and the HCiSO release is perfect.. Do not use the TNT release until they fix it, or it will be consuming your hardware CPU for nothing.. slowing down the MacOS.. Look for the Downie from HCiSO… Read more »
