    How to download YouTube videos in Safari

    If you're using Safari, first try right-clicking the video to see if "Download Video" is an option. It should be if you're using the HTML5 trial.

    If not, 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.

    ClipGrab is what I use and it's pretty good. It allows you to select video quality on youtube vids as well as convert to mp3. Wontube.com is pretty good as well.

    the Mediahuman apps are all great, you've got the youtube to mp3 variant as well as the regular one.

    I got this in a bundle with Parallel Desktop and Civ V and several other apps for $50! It works amazingly. Any video that is streaming can be downloaded..... I haven't tried it with netflix or HULU or anything. Scared lol

    Download helper (an addon for Firefox). It does need Firefox but it can download almost any video or audio file you can find.

    Did you notice that the OP uses Chrome and Safari... not Firefox?

    Unfortunately, Safari 6 removed "Activity"! What would be an alternative option? Thanks :)
