PullTube — download online videos and playlists
Happy to introduce you to a new app, that has been a personal-use/for-friends-only tool for some time. Now I’ve decided to share it with the world.
PullTube — the only video downloader you’ll ever need.
It looks nice and allows you to:
- download any YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, Cloudmix, Bandcamp, Youku and IQY video, playlist or stream;
- paste several URLs separated by new line or space;
- convert them directly to MP3 and M4A;
- download playlists or choose only those videos you need from it;
- HTTP/SOCKS proxy support for location restricted downloads;
- 4K and 60 fps videos are supported.
Features and supported websites list will expand upon user requests ;-)
All you need to do, is just copy and paste your link into PullTube’s text field (Command+V shortcut is also supported) or just drag and drop highlighted video URL or thumbnail, anywhere on its window.
PullTube also has a context menu item in Services > Open URL with PullTube and accepts drag-and-drop on its Dock icon, if necessary.
PullTube’s Safari App Extension, distributed within the app’s bundle, helps you download videos even easier. You just right-click (control-click) the video’s thumbnail or title, then select Send Link to PullTube. Clicking extension’s button in Safari’s toolbar, will send the video link of the current page.
The app will fetch data for it and you just select the desired resolution or audio format. If PullTube notices video to be part of some playlist, it will suggest you to download that playlist as well.
The following keyboard shortcuts are supported:
Enter/Return — starts download;
Esc — cancels video data fetching process or cancels all downloads on a download screen;
Command + V — pastes video link;
Command+O — shows a menu to paste several links separated by space or new line;
Command + , — shows Preferences;
Command + W — closes the main window; Command + Q — quits the app;
PullTube has a minimalist, intuitive interface that you will enjoy! At least, those who’ve already used the app, are sharing positive feedback :-)
You can download a fully functional trial and see PullTube in action.
