How to download a playlist from YouTube on Mac

YouTube is a very popular media platform. It hosts a countless amount of videos, and many more are uploaded every day. But all of this content is only available when you’re online. This is hardly surprising; no computer will be able to hold such a massive amount of data. Downloading the entire YouTube video library for offline use is simply not feasible.
Still, it is possible to download videos from YouTube; many third-party tools are available for this purpose. But what if you want to download a playlist from YouTube on Mac? Such a thing is possible too. You can, of course, download each video individually, but some advanced programs can automate this process.
In the guide below, we will describe several ways to download a playlist from YouTube on Mac. Reading it will take only a few minutes of your time.

YouTube is an exceptionally popular video hosting website that doesn’t need introduction. It is estimated that one-third of Earth’s population uses YouTube at least in some capacity. And why wouldn’t they? YouTube has everything. It hosts all kinds of channels: channels dedicated to music videos, to educational videos, to let’s plays, to children’s entertainment, and more.
All this wealth of content is tied to YouTube, and cannot be downloaded from the website directly. After all, YouTube makes money from advertisements. But there are many third-party tools that can download videos from YouTube. Some of these tools are advanced enough to feature bulk download options.

Although YouTube is primarily a video platform, it hosts a large library of music as well, all available to listen at a moment’s notice. Still, it is not perfect.

YouTube is both the best and the most popular platform when it comes to free video content.

YouTube is easily the most popular platform for watching videos online. Hundreds of millions of people use it every day to watch all kinds of content: news, documentary shows, let’s plays, music videos, live streams, tutorials, and much more.

How to install Bluestacks on Mac to play games

Bluestacks is an Android emulator, which is to say, a program that allows you to run Android games and applications. Running software this way is more demanding, but this is generally not an issue because most computers are significantly more powerful than smartphones. But a good quality Android emulator needs to do more than just allow programs to run, because using a mouse and a keyboard is very different from using a touchscreen. This is especially important for games, as they will not be enjoyable without a proper control scheme. Thankfully, Bluestacks provides this functionality; you will be able to use your keyboard instead of just clicking on the screen.
Bluestacks 5 is the newest version of the emulator, but it is unfortunately available for Windows only. Mac users are limited to Bluestacks 4, which is still a very capable emulator even though it lacks some of the newest features. The guide below will explain how to install Bluestacks on Mac to let you play smartphone games or run applications.

How to install Windows on Mac with VirtualBox

Apple users have plenty of reasons to install Windows on their Mac. Perhaps there is a piece of software that they absolutely need, but it’s been last updated in 1997, works only on Windows, and the person who wrote it has never even heard of a Mac (though they might’ve heard of a Macintosh). Perhaps they want to play a game that has never been ported to Mac due to the lack of demand. You get the idea – most of these reasons involve software in one way or another, which is hardly surprising. As the most popular operating system, Windows receives a lion’s share of all programs and games being made.
Now, we’ve already written an article about installing Windows on Mac. However, it could hardly claim to be comprehensive. For one, VirtualBox received only a passing mention. That is because VirtualBox is much more complex and difficult to use compared to, say, Parallels Desktop. Explaining how to use it would’ve required its own guide – and so, here we are. This guide will help you install Windows on Mac with VirtualBox by breaking down the process into easy-to-understand steps.

fix follina, fix msdt exploit, fix CVE-2022-30190, fix mesdetty

How to fix Follina vulnerability in Windows

Follina is a recently-discovered vulnerability in Windows. Besides Follina, several other names are used to refer to this vulnerability. Colloquially, it is known as the MSDT exploit. Microsoft itself calls it CVE-2022-30190, while the antiviruses will sometimes call it Mesdetty. It affects Windows 7, 8, 10, and 11.
The vulnerability is located within Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool, an application bundled with Windows to collect data for Microsoft Support. Using a specifically designed text document (specifically, those with .docx and .rtf extensions), or a shortcut, MSDT can be made to run arbitrary code. What this means is that if you receive a corrupted file like this in, say, e-mail, and then open it – the hacker will have full control of your computer. They could use this control to steal sensitive data such as passwords, to install malicious software, or to do anything else the hacker could imagine.
If you think this is bad – it gets worse. Corrupted .docx files still need to be opened for the hacker to gain control. Corrupted .rtf files do not. All the victim has to do is to select the file – to click on it once, in other words – and that’s it, they’re hacked.
Sounds very dangerous, doesn’t it? The worst part is, because it is so new (it’s been discovered just a few days ago), antiviruses might not be able to detect the corrupted files. Luckily, it is very easy to fix the Follina vulnerability yourself, which will render you completely immune to this attack. The article below will explain the steps you need to follow.

How to install Rosetta 2 on M1 Mac

Rosetta 2 is an application that serves as a compatibility layer between software written for Intel Macs and new M1 Macs. Even though programs written for Intel-based Apple computers cannot natively run on M1 computers, Rosetta 2 makes it possible. It supports the absolute majority of software ever written for Intel Mac computers, though there are exceptions – in rare cases, the programs will run slowly or not run at all. Despite this, Rosetta 2 is an excellent piece of software that can make your M1 Mac almost as capable as your Intel Mac computer in terms of running software.
This article will help you install Rosetta 2 on an M1 Mac. Both automatic and manual installation methods are covered.
