    I just upgraded my 2008 iMac to Mountain Lion. I use the Activity Monitor in Safari to download videos off of YouTube, however the activity box doesn't come up now when I press Command+Option+A.  Is anyone else having this issue? Is there an alternative way to access the Activity Monitor?

    I do believe there is a way to access it, but from what I understand you can't download from it any more

    I'm sure someone else will be along to confirm

    Edit: see this thread

    The Activity window is gone in Safari 6, as far as I know, you can find some threads about this.

    For downloading video, you can try ClipGrap or KeepVid or the Firefox VideoDownloadHelper add on.

    After activating the developer-menu in Safari preferences, right-click (control-click) on the YouTube-video and select 'inspect element'. This will select some code in the page resources where you can option-click on. Now another window will pop-up showing just the video. Then option-click the link in the address bar to download the video.. ;)
