  1. On my iPad2 (with IOS6 installed), when I click on “Mac Version” to townload YouTube Downloader Pro), I get the message DOWNLOAD FAILED Safari cannot download this file. Any other suggestions?

    • Hello Kate. Thanks for your comment. I am afraid that YouTube Downloader Pro is a desktop software that cannot be downloaded and installed on iPad 2. Pleaes download the software on your computer to download and convert YouTube for your iPad 2.
