    I have recently tried to download a .flv off youtube usually all I have to do is open up activity and double click on the link but now it doesn't let me. Are you guys having this problem? If so, what are some alternatives? I want to download some clips off youtube and putting on my iPod Classic.

    Thanks in Advance! :D

    If you're using Firefox, use an add-on like VideoHelper

    It's $15, but I have found TubeSock to work nicely, as well.

    I'll second VideoBox, it's fast and trouble free.

    Thanks for all the help. Although I could use those programs, I found the solution to my problem.

    To download a video off youtube using safari:

    - Load the video.
    - Open up activity.
    - Look for the video, it is usually the one with the biggest file size.
    - Copy the link
    - Paste it into a new window
    - Enter
    - It should now start downloading automatically.

    Alternatively, hold Option and double-click.
