New software lets you search for and watch YouTube videos without a browser.

Twisted Ninja Software has introduced Tubular, a YouTube client for Mac OS X. The software is available at $12.99 for a preview period, but its price will rise before the end of the year, the developers said.

The software lets users browse for, search for, and watch videos directly within the application. It also lets movie clip watchers convert content they find into an iPod-ready format at a single button click, and enables users to copy a YouTube URL to send to friends.
