  1. Make macOS menu bar icon optional

    The ClipGrab icon in the macOS menu bar is extremely visually jarring, being a solid colour when typical Apple design has these icons as black and white (depending on whether dark mode is enabled or not). Some users, myself included, prefer to keep these menu as clear as possible so don't want an icon there at all. Could the option to make this menu bar item be optional please be added? Many thanks.

    This is certainly an interesting idea, but ClipGrab has its own extraction code for all supported video sites. Are there any particular sites you feel are missing from ClipGrab?

  4. Paste-Funktion fixen

    Bitte unbedingt die Paste-Funktion unter Mac OS beim Speichern-Dialog fixen. Danke.

  5. Add Twitter and Instagram support

    Twitter and Instagram have all kinds of videos posted on there at multiple resolutions. It would be nice to back up a twitter video before it gets taken down. People need a record of these things.

  6. Download multiple resolutions at once

    Ability to select multiple resolutions from one video. It can be very convenient for website owners like myself — I need to download many resolutions everytime.

    Implementation can be very simple:

    1) Checkboxes instead of selectbox on main screen.
    2) One more item in selectbox: "Custom" (so it can be like this: 4K, 1080p, 720p, 480p, Custom) and checkboxes in Settings.

    For example, I'm always trying to download 480p, 720p, 1080p and all resolutions higher from that (including original file). I was searching for downloader with this functionality, but without luck.

  7. ClipGrab recognizes when I copy a YouTube video URL to the clipboard, but then almost immediately returns "Connection closed. Error code 0".

    Sorry, this isn't an idea. It's a tech support question. This was the only place I could find to post my question.

    What is error code 0? How can I fix it?

  10. Paste URL from clipboard button & automatic download button

    1) paste url from clipboard button
    2) automatic download button (with user preference setting for Format & Quality) with automatic fallback resolution (Quality) if preferred resolution not available.

  12. Allow importing a plain text file with a list of links to download.

    Basically have a plain text file import where you can specify a file where you have a line by line list of all the links you want ClipGrab to download, and potentally have some sort of rate/connection limiting option to determine how many active downloads it starts at once / connections to be made at once.

  13. Remember previous video quality and framerate

    "Remember video quality" option should also remember the framerate of the previous video, not just the video dimensions.

  14. Disable dark mode in Mojave

    Might be nice to be able to turn off dark mode for the app. When dark mode is on, the app is very dark (dark background with black text)

  15. Problem downloading

    I used to have a problem with messages coming up
    about SSL Errors, which would prevent downloads taking place.
    By chance I found a solution. On the Tabs on ClipGrab,
    I went to SETTINGS>>OTHER, at the bottom of this
    last Tab there is a Box which says "Ignore SSL Errors".
    I ticked this Box and that solved the problem. Apparently,
    this Box is Unchecked by default. I think it would save
    users a lot of hassle if this Box were checked by default.
    They could always uncheck it if they wanted to.

  16. Automatically download new videos from different subscriptions

    Ideally, it would add each new video to a different local folder (to keep them organised).

  17. Accept bitcoin

    As another form of payment for donation. If you did, I would donate! (You might have had a donation link before but it's not there on your donation page anymore!)

  20. Video size information

    It would be great to know the file size for original format file downloads beforehand i.e. in the quality dropdown.
