    It worked great for the first three videos I tried, but now it will not covert past 80% for anything. :(

    All you need is Quicktime and Perian

    Converting those low-res YouTube Flash movies to Quicktime (h264 or mpeg) makes the quality even worse. I prefer to collect the Flashs as they are.

    You should get the free Perian codec collection to play Flash movies in Quicktime. [1]

    To save Flash movies in Safari you don't need any extra software.

    - Just open the YouTube page of the video you want.
    - Open the Activity window (alt-cmd-A)
    - Find the address of the video. The file size is about 500kb to 2mb.
    - Select and copy the address (cmd-C).
    - Open the Downloads window (alt-cmd-L).
    - Paste the video address (cmd-V).

    Then the download of the video will commence. The video will be in your standard Safari downloads folder.
