I’m happy to announce that aside from the Mac App Store, Transloader 3 is now also available on Setapp!

With Transloader, you can start downloads on your Macs, remotely from your iPhone, iPad, and other Macs.

While Transloader is able to download all kinds of file links, it does not directly support downloading videos from YouTube, for example.

That’s where Downie by Charlie Monroe comes in.

Enter Downie

Downie lets you easily download videos from thousands of different sites.
Just copy-paste the link of a video you find on YouTube, or Vimeo – or any number of video hosting sites – to Downie, and it’ll download the video.
It’s that easy.

Downie and Transloader

Use Transloader in combination with Downie, and you can download videos you come across on your iPhones and iPads on a Mac remotely.
Set up a Link Action for YouTube links, and Transloader on Mac will forward those to Downie, which will download them right away.

Setting up a Link Action in Transloader

In Transloader’s preferences, select Actions and add a Link Action. Configure it to launch Downie for links that point to youtube.com:

Now, anytime you assign your Mac a YouTube link with Transloader, the Mac app will forward it to Downie for download:

Quick Tip

To avoid Downie potentially asking for user input while you’re away, open its preferences, select Advanced and select Run in automated mode.

And that’s it!

For my freeware app SiriMote (which lets you control your Mac and its apps with your Apple TV Remote), I created a code-drawn representation of Apple TV’s Siri Remote (versions 2015-2021).

I figured, sharing is caring, so here you go, you can get at it over on GitHub.

It’s written in Objective-C, was built with Xcode 12.5.1 and runs on macOS 10.12.2 and newer.

Enjoy 😊
