A list oriented YouTube app. I found easy to use YouTube downloaders, but none of them actually facilitate playlists, requiring manual work. I wanted a solution that would let me grab entire playlists. GrabTube also provides a way to steadily watch your subscription feed as new content is uploaded without babysitting the YouTube website. Create an unattended video streaming website of a subscription feed. Requirements: Windows 32 or 64 bit, .NET framework 4.5, and an internet connection.
