Once you’ve loaded Clipgrab, you’ll find out if you’ve copied the YouTube URL from your browser, and it’s set to ask if you want to download or catch it. It will ask you where you want to save it and depending on your connection it will be on your hard drive in a few seconds.
A progress bar shows you the progress, making it easy to watch the downloaded video from there.
