Is there a any app that let me download videos from netflix or youtube? A program that forces high quality and actually downloads the file, not record the screen.

If not, what is the closest app?

For downloading videos from YouTube or other sites, if you're using Safari and have ClickToFlash installed, right-click on the video and select "Download Video".

You can also use ClipGrab or KeepVid or similar apps or sites such as (for downloading any file types from a site).

To download via Safari 5:
While viewing the video just click "Window > Activity" then identify the video in the list of elements (it will likely show something like "258K of 1.8MB" and will be the largest file on the list.

Hold the option key down and double-click the file to download.​
There have been mixed reports about the availability of this functionality in Safari 6, using the Develop menu.

The quality of the downloaded file depends entirely on the quality of the video at the source.

I use You can either use it online or they have an extension you can add to Safari that will embed a download button in the video source. Works well with YouTube, Vimeo, etc. Not sure it will work with Netflix, I suspect not.
