1."Please take this seriously. There is a program for PCs called VDownloader. It lets you download from YouTube, Metacafe, etc. I want to be able to do this on my Mac. Is there a program for that?"

2."I'd like some kind of video grabber, like Vdownloader, to download videos from YouTube and the like. I've got a MacBook White - is there any program or software (preferably free) that could do this and work on my Mac?"

Personally, I have been using VDownloader for years. I've downloaded lots of stuff and it looks pretty safe. I had a difficult time when I decided to switch Windows to Mac, because I could not use the VDownloader anymore. As most people know, VDownloader is a Windows-based download program. It works in Windows system only. I searched the internet, hoping to find a VDownloader for Mac like the two guys did, but there was no luck since you know, there was no official Mac VDownloader at all. To my delight, finally, I got a great alternative to VDownloader for Mac -- Doremisoft Video Converter for Mac. After several trial, I found this alternative really helpful and it performed even better than the VDownloader.
