How to Download and Convert YouTube to QuickTime MOV
QuickTime supports a number of video formats but FLV. So if you want to import YouTube to QuickTime to play, or QuickTime Pro to convert or create slideshows, you need to transform YouTube videos to QuickTime compatible formats first. As regards to YouTube to QuickTime converter, I humbly recommend Wondershare AllMyTube for its convenient way to download online YouTube video and convert both downloaded YouTube video and existing YouTube video to QuickTime MOV format. Try it for free now.
1 Download Any YouTube Video
If you have got YouTube video onto computer, skip this step. To download YouTube video with AllMyTube, just mouse over the playing video and you should see a download button to the right corner of the player. Click it to add YouTube video to the download queue. Another 2 ways to download YouTube is to paste the video URL or just drag and drop the video URL to the application user interface. The download process should be issued immediately and usually need some minutes to get YouTube to your computer depending on the video length.

2 Convert YouTube to QuickTime Format
It can't be more easier to convert YouTube to QuickTime MOV format. Just check the video(s) you want to convert, and click the Convert button at the bottom. A dialog will show up for you to choose the output format. From Video Format category, select MOV (QuickTime's default file extension name), and then click OK to start conversion.
If necessary, you could click Option button to make settings to the output video in terms of codec, resolution, frame rate, bit rate, sample rate, etc.
3 Import YouTube Video to QuickTime player
The output files converted by this YouTube video converter are stored in the specified folder, usually /Users/USERNAME/Desktop/. When you import YouTube to QuickTime, locate them in the right folder.
- Play YouTube with QuickTime Player
By default, your Mac will open all MOV videos with QuickTime player. So, just double click on the converted YouTube video to play it using QuickTime Player. Don't forget to click the play button. It won't auto play. You could also open output YouTube videos by File > Open File.
- Import YouTube to QuickTime Pro
The "File > Open File" method is also available to get YouTube MOV file to QuickTime Pro. At the same time, Import option exists in the File menu. So, what's the difference between Open File and Import. Well, the difference is very subtle but important: If QuickTime Pro can natively process a file's media, use the Open File. Otherwise, try Import.
Tips: You can directly play online YouTube video in QuickTime player through File > Open URL, without downloading and converting YouTube video.
