    I'm sure this will sound like a dumb question, but I just copied a YouTube video to my hard drive, using QuickTime X, something it seemed one is not supposed to be able to do without QuickTime 7 Pro. ? What's the deal?

    I know this is an old thread, but how did you use QT X to copy a YouTube video to your HDD?
    Btw, QT X is a whole new application and doesn't share a lot with its predecessor QT Player/Pro 7. Apple included some of QT Pro's features into QT X, but also left many good things out, like JKL control and some other stuff.

    Yea, how did you do that? I would assume firing up QT Player and selecting New Screen Recording... seems to work well.

    Ah, didn't think of that, though the CPU would be quite taxed during this method, as QT X is very CPU hogging during screen recordings, and YT is CPU intensive too (as you know).

    You're right, the CPU will indeed be performing at a high rate and this method is somewhat time consuming as one will be unable to use their computer for anything but YT (until the screen recording finishes) and the screen recording will take the length of the YT video (as it cannot process the recording any faster).
