Quickly download episodes from your favorite TV series by using this minimalist macOS application, and convert them to popular file formats
WatchMe is a small macOS application designed to help you find and download episodes from TV series, with minimal effort. The app finds multiple online sources for each episode, and can also convert the media content to MP4, MOV, or MPEG file formats.
Unsophisticated video downloader focused on finding TV series episodes
The WatchMe user interface is organized around two central panels, one containing the search results, and the other the download queue. To start using the app, you must input the name of the TV series in the search bar placed in the top area of the app’s main window.
The utility finds the show, allows you to see how many series are available, the episodes included in each season, and multiple online download sources for each video file. To help you navigate the results list, WatchMe also integrates Go Home and Go Back buttons.
Noteworthy is that you cannot see any detailed info about the file that is to be downloaded, such as the download server, the file size, the image quality, and so on. However, in the download queue panel you get to monitor the progress of each transfer, and choose to have the video file revealed in a Finder window when the process is over.
Simple yet efficient solution for downloading TV shows episodes from various online sources
WatchMe has very few customization options, and all of them are hosted in the app’s Preferences window: you can adjust the number of concurrent downloads and the output directory.
In addition, you can choose only to download the source video, or to convert it automatically to other file formats, such as MOV, MPEG, or MP4. The conversion is necessary if you want to transfer the videos further on a mobile device that cannot handle certain video formats.
