After Firefox released the Mac version for Video Downloadhelper, Mac users get an easy way to copy YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, BlipTv and more online streaming videos. However, safari is Mac’s default browser, it is highly compatible with the device. Firefox, as some users complained, it’s not an ideal browser for Mac, and they might give up using it. The problem arises at that time, Downloadhelper cannot be installed on safari, then how to save popular videos to Mac? No worries, every question will have a reasonable solution.

Currently, there is no downloadhelper safari extension. For your reference, I’m going to introduce another video downloader which called ClipConverter. It’s also a browser-based application, good at downloading and converting videos for MP4, MOV, AVI, MKV and other popular formats. Yet, it is not very stable and does not work with YouTube videos at times.
For those users who have advanced requirements, I advise you to draw support from video downloader software like Video Download Capture, Jaksta streaming recorder, iskysoft downloader and etc.
