    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.

    Thank you very much. I have Safari 6 and it does not give me the option to follow the steps you shared with me. I will try the other programs
