Airy – The Best YouTube Private Video Downloader For Mac

Anna Brooks

Not only is there the option to watch videos that other people upload to YouTube, but you also have the option to make, share, and keep your own videos on the platform. There are lots of times that we will upload our videos to YouTube and then delete it from our device, essentially using YouTube as a backup service. But what if there was a reason that we need the video back on our devices? Uploading to YouTube is much easier than downloading, even when it comes to your own videos. There are a lot of online YouTube private video downloader for Mac apps on the market, but most of them aren’t worth your time. This is because they are unable to even get access to the videos. Not every Mac app to download private videos from YouTube is worth it either. One tested and proven method to download private videos from YouTube to Mac is Airy for Mac OS X.
