Get It

A native macOS video/audio downloader. Think of it as a youtube downloader that works on many sites.


Download it here, unzip it and open it. If a yellow package button is visible on the main screen, click on it and follow the guide (to install the dependencies).


Get It will download audio and/or movies from many websites such as YouTube, BBC, Instagram, ... It's a GUI round the popular YouTube-DL command-line program but with an easy to use interface. It will save your settings dynamically or you can restore the default settings. The default settings will download the audio from a video, convert it to an MP3 and save it to you downloads folder. This was, in my opinion, the mostly used setting.

Installation Guide

Get It will check if the dependencies that it needs are installed. If not all dependencies are installed, there will be a package icon in the main window that you can click. This button will load a simple installation guide that will guide you through the installation of the missing dependencies. If a dependency is already installed on your Mac, than the guide will not show this to avoid over complicating it. the following image is a screenshot of a step in the installation guide:

Submit a bug

You can submit a bug here on Github. Please provide the following:

  • The URL(s) that you try to download.
  • Your settings.

Also, open the Terminal app on your MacBook and issue the following commands:

cat /tmp/getit_install
cat /tmp/getit_logs

Provide the output of the first command of you have an issue while installing the required software and provide the output of the second command of you have problems while downloading your URLs.
