    I'm a big fan of watching youtube videos on my iPhone and iPad, but I'm not a big fan of my limited data plan overage fees. A few months back, I found a solution. I came across the <CMD><Option><A> command to download internet videos. Then I used the handbrake to convert them and the Goodplayer App to play them so I can play them on my iPhone or iPad on the go when I'm not on a wifi network. After upgrading to Mountain Lion, I have been unable to use the command. Does anyone out there know for sure if Apple killed this command or did they re-map it using a different key sequence??

    Yes. This is a big loss for me too. Activity Window has been gone since the unibar Safari betas on Lion.

    A possible but more complicated alternative may be Inspect Element, but I would suggest one of the few dedicated YouTube download extensions, which I suppose are even easier to use than Activity Window.

    Just use a flash downloader app or site.

    Thanks everyone. I guess I'll have to do that.
