My YouTube Downloader

Save HD Videos and/or just Audio from YouTube.


This shortcut actually works!!! I’ve tried so many different shortcuts and no one has got it right until now.

Download HD videos and/or just the Audio from any YouTube link.

You can also listen to your saved audio/songs in the VLC app or right inside the Shortcuts app. Even plays in the background.


Latest Release Notes

2.0 - Jan. 24, 2019, 10:20 a.m.

Revamped most of the code so that now you can download protected content from YouTube. It might take a few more seconds than before but it’s due to the more lines of code to get around YouTube’s protection.

Also you will need to signup on and get a FREE API KEY to download the protected videos/music.

You will be prompted to set that api key up upon first run and you will never be bothered with it again.

Another thing I forgot to mention is you can listen to all your downloaded songs from within this shortcut or you can open them up in VLC from within this shortcut if you have the app installed.
