    This doesn't work on anymore on Safari in Lion. Is there an alternative? I've been using Chrome for doing that since then.

    You can use Mactubes.

    I've been preferring to use Chrome and Safari more these days. I use Chrome for flash-heavy sites mostly and sites like Gizmodo where they load faster.

    I just tired it using it on my Air with Lion and it worked for me.

    I got the button and was able to DL the video. What happens when you try?

    Weird, I just uninstalled and reinstalled it and now the Download Video button is back. That's odd, I put it on a clean install of Lion before.

    I just installed this and I get the "download" button on some videos but not on others (mostly it doesn't show up). I thought there might be a conflict with click-to-flash, but it acts the same with c-to-f installed or not.

    Anyone else having this only appear periodically? One general observation is that it seems to appear more with homemade type videos and less with professional made type videos.

    By the way, I've found that while running Click-to-Flash I just need to right click on the video and there is an option to download it. Works on all youtube videos.

    Thanks, Click-to-Flash does what I want.
