    I want to be able to download YouTube videos for this YouTube Downloader I am developing. So far I found HCYoutubeParser (Github: https://github.com/hellozimi/HCYoutubeParser) It works fine but can't fetch HD1080p videos. I also looked at other 3rd party libraries such as: LBYouTubeView, and PSYouTubeExtractor, but they all seem to be for iOS. Also, all of the libraries that I mentioned don't support downloading vevo videos. Can anyone point me in the right direction any suggestions.

    Thanks in Advance.

    I use the torch browser and it generally does just fine. It's so-so with Vevo..sometimes it works, sometimes not.

    Thanks for your replies but these are examples of YouTube Downloaders. I want to make a YouTube Downloader.

    I'm not entirely sure what your question is.

    Why? Not only is it against the YouTube terms and conditions but it also seems pretty pointless.

    I'd probably try porting the mobile libraries to be OS X libraries.
