Softorino YouTube Converter is the new One-Click Downloader?

The answer is Yes – and here is why:

One-Click Downloader is originally a Google Chrome Browser Extension to Download Online Videos. The idea behind a One-Click video downloader is extremely simple – Download online video from a page with one click.

  • However, the Original One-Click Downloader can't download YouTube Videos Anymore.

With Softorino YouTube Converter – you can download YouTube Videos with the same Ease. Because SYC 2 automatically integrates with your Web Browser – it allows you to add Videos to Download by simply copying the Link (no Paste required)

  • SYC 2 is a macOS YouTube Downloader that can integrate with Any Web Browser without additional software and steps.

You can also Browse YouTube and find the Video to Download directly from Softorino YouTube Converter. With a Built-in YouTube Browser – it is like having a YouTube App for Mac.

SYC 2 vs YTD Video Downloader for Mac

Which one is the Best Free YouTube Downloader for Mac?

Same as Softorino YouTube Converter, YTD for Mac can recognize Copied YouTube Links – But that is the Only common feature. By the way – YTD YouTube Downloader for Mac Free Full Version is Not Available.

Although YTD is Free to Download for Mac – it is far less functional than Softorino YouTube Converter. Even by the looks YTD for Mac doesn’t look like native macOS YouTube Downloader

First of all YTD Free Downloader for Mac is limited to Download only 1 YouTube Video at a time with the Limited Download Speed. That means: No Batch Download & No Playlist Downloads

Unlike SYC 2 - Free YTD Video Downloader for Mac can’t be used as YouTube MP3 Downloader for Mac. So you would have to spend time to convert the Downloaded YouTube Video to MP3 afterwards.

As for the top Video Quality, YTD Video Downloader for Mac can Download Youtube 1080p Videos only.

While Softorino YouTube Converter can Download Youtube Videos in 1080p 60fps and 4K 2160p 60fps quality.

How to Download 8K YouTube Videos?

Softorino YouTube Converter will be able to Download 8K YouTube Videos soon!

We know how important it is to give You the Ability to Download YouTube Videos on Mac in the Best Quality, and we are Working on it.

Looking for a YouTube Downloader for Mac Online, you may find many guides on How to Download 8K YouTube Videos… Unfortunately – Most of those are misleading.

You may find information about YTD Video Downloader for Mac, claiming to be able to Download 8K YouTube Videos. And not finding such option in YTD Free Downloader for Mac

The Sad Truth is – that most of the apps that claim to Download 8K YouTube Videos, have the top available quality to Download YouTube 1080p 60fps Videos in best case scenario.

What is even worse, is that some of the Free YouTube Downloaders for Mac Online might persuade you to buy the "Pro" version to Download 8K YouTube Videos, when it is not Available.

And if you are thinking How to Download YouTube Videos on Mac Without Software – you will probably have a Hard time Downloading 8K YouTube Videos. YouTube Downloaders for Mac Online are just too slow and uncomfortable when it comes to downloading High Resolution Videos.

At the same time, Softorino YouTube converter guarantees that you can Download YouTube 1080p 60fps and 4K 2160p 60fps Videos.

Our developers will add the option to Download 8K YouTube Videos with Softorino YouTube Converter in one of the Future Updates.
