    Found this free YouTube downloader for Mac program released by iSkysoft Studio. It can detect and download videos from video sharing websites automatically. It supports YouTube, Yahoo, Google, Break, Metacafe, MySpace, Gofish and other video sharing sites. Also, the upgrade version support extract audio to MP3 AAC etc. and convert videos to MP4 AVI etc. on iPod, iPhone, PSP and so on.

    Download page for the free mac YouTube downloader.
    1.Open the tool and turn ‘Sniffer on’ on. If the button on the top left corner is ‘Sniffer OFF’, click it to allow it detect the videos online automatically.

    2.Before you go to the video site, you can make some simple settings from this little place set.JPG at the top right corner. The prompt window will be showed at the bottom right corner for several minutes.

    4.You can stop downloading, delete the wrong , rename the downloaded videos, play the video and open the store directory to find the downloaded videos.
    5.If you want to convert the videos downloaded or from your computer, you can upgrade the program to iSkysoft iTube Studio for Mac. It can convert and extract audio from the downloaded videos to iPhone, iPod, PSP, ect.

    Capturing YouTube Videos

    I've been using http://www.captureyoutube.net - works well and it's free to capture youtube videos with. It's web-based so it works with Macs or PCs.

    What about MXTube? You can download them directly to your iPod/Phone.

    For converting I prefere ffmpegX. It is a little tricky to install. But when it works, it is the best.
