Do you want to download songs and videos from YouTube to your computer for free but don’t know how to do it? In this article we are going to see just how to do this in a very quick and easy way for both WindowsMac and Linux.

Always remember that downloading songs and videos from YouTube is illegal and therefore you can only do it to download your content to recover material you no longer have on your computer.

Having said that, let’s finally go driving. To download songs and videos from YouTube on Windows, Mac and Linux for free we will use a free program called ClipGrab.


ClipGrab is a free software that allows you to download videos from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and many other sites for free.

You can download the program from the official website.

After downloading and installing the program on your computer you will notice that there are various items in the program menu. It is in fact possible to both search for videos and paste links of videos to download.

If you want to download a video by pasting the link, move to the Downloads menu item and paste the video link.

You can then select the format in which to download the video. You can choose whether to download it as a video by even choosing the quality of the video or as a song.

How to download YouTube videos for free on Windows and Mac 1

By clicking on Download this clip! it will ask you where to save the file and at the end of the download you will receive a notification of completion.

As you have seen downloading videos and songs from YouTube for free on computer is very simple.

There are also other alternatives to this software or there are websites that do the same thing but I think this software is one of the best to do this.

The disadvantage of websites is that they often get disabled / blacked out or change URLs and thus become unreachable for users. Furthermore, on a website it is difficult to find the possibility to choose the quality of the video to download or the possibility to download the file as a video or as an audio file.

This program unlike others is constantly updated and light for the system. In addition, through the settings you can set your preferences to make the user experience more comfortable for your needs.

That’s all for this article.
