Welcome to Pulltube

For a while, I was looking for a reliable native Mac app to download my favorite online videos. I started this app two years ago and it 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 media downloader you'll ever need.

It looks nice and allows you to:

  • download any online video or playlist from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, Cloudmix, Bandcamp, Youku, IQIY and a lot more;
  • trim Youtube videos. No need to download the entire file, if you only need to cut a couple seconds of it;
  • support for password protected videos (if you know the password);
  • download subtitles for videos you like;
  • paste several URLs separated by new line or space;
  • convert them directly to MP3 and M4A, with artwork and metadata support;
  • download playlists or choose only those videos you need from it;
  • HTTP/SOCKS proxy support for location restricted downloads;
  • 8K, 4K and 60 fps videos are supported;
  • download Webm Vp8, Vp9 encoded Youtube videos are converted to mp4 on the fly;
  • smart browser extensions for even easier use;
  • save videos to download later list;
  • swipe gesture friendly interface

Features and supported websites list will expand upon user requests ;-)

IMPORTANT: If you have internet connection monitors installed (Little Snitch, Hands Off or else) make sure you white list or apply "Allow all connection types" rule for PullTube.

Download your first video

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.

You can also paste several links in one go, all you need is — to have them separated by space or new line.

If it’s a chunk of text you have highlighted, there’s no need to separate every single link from it. Just paste and links will automatically be detected.

If your links are stored in a TXT file, just drag-and-drop it into Pulltube.

PullTube also has a context menu item in Services > Open URL with PullTube and accepts drag-and-drop on its Dock icon, if necessary.

Clever browser extensions

Pulltube browser extensions
PullTube’s Safari App Extension, distributed within the app’s bundle, helps you download videos even easier. You just right-click (control-click) a video thumbnail or title on any webpage > select Send Link to PullTube. Clicking extension’s button (Control+Shift+P) in Safari’s toolbar, will send the video link of the current page.

Chrome and Firefox extensions are also available. Extensions are not apps, so they require Pulltube installed.

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.
