What is YouView?

Browse, watch, convert, and download YouTube videos on your Mac faster, because YouView uses the core technologies of Mac OS X to play instead of Flash allowing video to run smoother on systems with lower specs. YouView contains great parental controls that'll allow any parents control what their children see on YouTube via filters such as Safe search and flagged videos. By default YouView is moderate on parental controls but can be strict if needed. YouView allows you to choose the max size of video that is loaded such as 1080P. By default it is 480P but can go all the way up to 4k if you system supports it. When logged in with YouView you have the ability to view your special feeds such as recommendations which shows videos that YouTube thinks you may also like based on your history of viewing.

I actually bought a copy of this one a few years back, and shortly after having done so, the developer stopped supporting it. It runs fine on Mac OS 10.6.8, but my iMac is running Mac OS 10.10.5, and under that OS, it crashes.

Often.

As long as you're not running anything after Snow Leopard, YouView should work great for you. Otherwise ...

Okay, so after fighting with MediaTube and finding no decent programs to replace it with, I re-downloaded and installed YouView. Even with its faults, it is much, MUCH better than anything else I have tried ... but I'll keep looking for something better, because I'm pretty sure that whatever issues I have been having with this program will be back in the not-too-distant ...
