Download All YouTube Videos in a Channel


Direct YouTube Downloader is a combination of a YouTube video downloader and converter which you can use in order to download various YouTube video qualities and formats, video per video, or entire playlists/channels at once and then convert them into formats which are readable to mobile devices like iPhone and iPad. Small warning before we dig into YouTube video downloading and conversion, during installation you are offered to install a browser toolbar and change the default search engine. Make sure to uncheck these during install.

Direct Youtube Downloader default window

What we mentioned in the introduction can be read on the default window that waits for us when we run Direct YouTube Downloader. Program interface has a grayish color with a smooth theme, which makes usage easy on the eyes. That’s very important because in a sense this YouTube video download software is also a video browser, which you can use to go through the videos and choose the ones that you are interested in downloading and converting.

Download YouTube video playlists, channels or single videos with Direct YouTube Downloader

After installation, if you click on the icon or if you leave the Run Direct YouTube Downloader check mark upon finishing the installer you will receive an error, which tells you that the application couldn’t start. This error comes up if you open the application as a standard user, you’ll have to open it as an administrator to have it run properly.

Here is an image of Direct YouTube Downloader loaded up with a users channel all ready to download videos. Notice all the different options that are available. Like we mentioned you can select the quality of the downloaded videos and also select between various different video formats that are available of the particular video that you are checking out. To the right of the quality selection area, we have the Convert settings, that’s where you can set the program to convert videos for:

  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • iPod
  • Sony PS
  • Android Tablets
  • Android Phones

If you don’t want to download some of the videos, then you can remove them by clicking on the gray X button which is located next to each one of the videos. Another useful option that Direct YouTube Downloader has would be the Download audio only option, which will only download sound from YouTube videos that are selected in the playlist. It’s perfect for all those who want to download songs, the ones that can be legally downloaded of course.

Before you start the download and conversion make sure that you change the destination folder of the videos that are being downloaded. This can be achieved by clicking on the gears icon which can be seen in the right upper corner. After all this is set, clicking on the Download button will start the conversion and of course the download of YouTube videos, and that’s that.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
