MediaHuman YouTube Downloader
This YouTube playlist downloader from MediaHuman runs from your desktop, so it needs to be downloaded and installed on your computer before you can use it. It works for Windows, Mac and Ubuntu.
The only drawback is that it is limited to 20 downloads unless you pay, so a larger playlist won’t work in this tool.
