What People are Saying about TubeG Pro app

  • Extremely happy!
    Thank yoU! I love this app! Totally worth the price! I am VERY happy!

  • A great app that I use everyday!
    This is my favorite youtube app. Thanks for update. I recommend to everyone.

  • Best youtube player for mac
    One of the best apps to play youtube content, organize playlists and keep everything clutter free. Developer is very responsive for any feature suggestion.

  • TubeG has changed how I watch YouTube videos
    TubeG saves my place when I watch a lecture or documentary on YouTube, so that I can come back at any time and pick up where I left off. I used to try to watch longer YouTube videos in my web browser, but I would usually close the tab or the browser absent-mindedly, and lose my place.

    TubeG lets me keep a list of content I want to watch in a completely different app, so that closing the browser (or shutting down the computer) doesn’t make me lose my place. In addition to that great feature, it’s a really clean and easy to understand interface. I’ve added the TubeG component to my Google Chrome browser so that if I see something I want to watch later I can click the icon on the Chrome task bar and load the YouTube video in TubeG for saving. You can make your own playlists in TubeG to sort out the content you want to save for later.

    Being able to save your stopping place in the video really makes TubeG useful for watching classroom lectures, documentaries, speeches and movies on YouTube. This sets TubeG apart from every other YouTube app -- TubeG is by far the best app of its kind!

  • Keeps getting better!
    Grateful that the developer continues to improve!

    Thank you for the extensive updates and fixing some of the quirks!

  • Great Youtube Toolbar App
    This is a great Youtube Toolbar app. The developer is always adding updates and perfecting the experience. It keeps getting better. Highly rcopmmended if you enjoy playing youtube videos right from your desktop. Very nice.

  • it works
    app works quite well.

  • Пользуюсь уже полтора года
    Если вам надоела реклама на ютубе, кривые тормозящие и жрущие батарею ноутбука проигрыватели Flash и HTML5, берите это приложение, все открывается в красивом нативном окне, которое можно свободно двигать и разворачивать на отдельный монитор, на ноутбках вообще сказка. Можно и настройки качества выбрать, и видео кешируется как положено, а не грузится заново, как только переключил на другой момент ролика. Русский язык, подключение к своим подпискам, проигрывание плейлистов по порядку, — все есть. В общем, как приобрел это приложение полтора года назад, так и пользуюсь ежедневно, чего и вам желаю ;)

  • Super application !!!
    Une application idéale pour visionner à travers une fenetre d’écran des vidéos ou des streams en live tout en travaillant à côté...

  • I genuinely enjoy using this app
    Update: I still love this app. I honetsly use it everyday however recently I have been having some minor but ultimately annoying problems. The developer is very active with maintaing the app and responds almost immediately to all emails but after sending a few bug reports I almost feel like I’m a bother. When it works great it’s a fantastic app that lets you watch/listen to YouTube videos while simultaneously getting out of your way. I’ve gotten around most of the problems by using the browser extension instead of interacting directly with the menu bar icon but it’s a frustrating work around. I still highly recommend this app though.

    It’s not for everyone, especially at this price. I’ve tried free alternatives and paid alternatives like MenuTab for Youtube (which for the record is broken, I haven’t gotten it to play any videos in weeks) and I find this to be the best yet, which is why I gladly paid for it. I watch a lot of Youtube videos. I like that this app allows the videos to float over all windows and that the windows themselves are easily resizable. It has a nice clean look and the Pro version allows searching Youtube right from the menubar and supports playlists. Every video I’ve tried so far has played and best of all I’ve yet to see any ads before the videos. Best of all the developer seems really dedicated to maiantaing the app. App discovery is really awful in the Mac App Store because the same old apps are always featured and if not for randomly stumbling across this app from another website I’d never have discovered it. Check the developer’s website for more info.

  • O TubeG é incrível!
    É o melhor app para acessar o YouTube no Mac. Tem muitas funções legais, o video permanece visível inclusive sobre outros apps em tela cheia e a transparência é ajustável. Ótimo para tutoriais e telas pequenas. Impossível não recomendar e uma pena que ainda não tenha o reconhecimento que merece. O suporte também é excelente! Obs.: Há uma versão de teste no site oficial.
  • Sanfm12 [translate]
  • Absolutamente fantástico e já indispensável!
    Esse app mudou totalmente minha forma de interagir com o YouTube no Mac. A janela do vídeo sempre me acompanha, o que permite que eu continue a navegar e a utilizar outros apps, ainda que em tela cheia. É possível lançar o aplicativo e iniciar o vídeo de várias maneiras: Extensão no navegador, URL (tubeg://), botão direito sobre o link/thumbnail do vídeo, entre outras. Sem falar de todas as outras possibilidade no menu pop-up! Completíssimo! Impossível não recomendar e uma pena que ainda seja tão pouco conhecido. Obs.: Há uma versão de teste no site oficial!
  • Sanfm12 [translate]
  • Muy buena app
    Es una muy buena app, estoy usando OSX Yosemite 10.10.1 y funciona muy bien, lo mejor de esta app es la integración con la cuenta de youtube, mas especificamente por las listas de reproducción de mi cuenta.
  • if0b0s [translate]

What People are Saying about TubeG app

  • Fantastic
    Great video player, highly customizable. I really like the integration with safari (extension). Thanks
  • steli14 [translate]
  • great app
    I think this app is great. I like to watch videos while I work and use this app whenever I want to watch something on youtube without having to keep my browser open to the page. It is very easy to use and the option to float the player on top is key. I would reccommend this to anyone who is in need of a standalone youtube player.
  • Rob Vector [translate]
  • Ótimo!
    Excelentes app e suporte. Deveria estar nos destaques da App Store. Extremamente versátil, flutua sobre todas as telas, inclusive sobre apps em full screen. Dica: Invista direto na versão Pro, porque inveitavelmente você irá desejar tê-la!
  • Sanfm12 [translate]
  • Excellent App
    This app does what it says. I use it many times a day to watch movies and even short videos. I have had no problems.
  • Dingledagger [translate]
  • I love this app! Only one click in Safari and I can watch on the top of every fullscreen app.
  • MichaelR3935 [translate]
  • A handy and smooth-running application that enables you to enjoy your favorite YouTube videos as you take care of your daily tasks

  • I can work and my kid is watching cartoons
  • Il007 [translate]
  • Nützliche App
    Die App hat was in sich, besonders Erweiterung fürs Safari (es gibt auch für den Chrome) hat mir zugesprochen. Die auch einbahnfrei funktioniert, kurzum: meine Empfehlung!
  • Jakob1976 [translate]
  • Muito bom!
    Excelente app, já não consigo mais ficar sem! Tem um conjunto espetacular de funções, apesar de algumas falhas.

  • Наконец-то Youtube стало приятно смотреть
    Если вам надоела реклама на ютубе, кривые тормозящие и жрущие батарею ноутбука проигрыватели Flash и HTML5, берите это приложение, все открывается в красивом нативном окне и работает отлично (кстати и в Yosemite тоже). Можно и настройки качества выбрать, и видео кешируется как положено, а не грузится заново, как только переключил на другой момент ролика. Русский язык тоже есть. Писал разработчику, и он в новой версии расширения для браузера сделает возможность открывать все youtube ссылки автоматически в этом приложениию без необхдимости копировать/вставлять адрес видео или даже нажимать на кнопочку! В общем, после долгих поисков и мучений решил для себя проблему удобства ютуба раз и навсегда, чего и вам желаю ;)
