In step 6, after placing the cursor at the end of the browser address field (and it will be long), press OPT + ENTER (equivalent of ALT + ENTER in her instructions)

Emdad Rashid says:

I’ve just found a way to solve the problem of some users. The problem lies with some videos playing in HTML 5 and some in Flash. The solution detailed in this video works for HTML 5 but not for videos played in the original Flash player.For the later just download ClickToPlugin & ClickToFlash from here

It’s even easier than it was with the Activity Window, just right click on the video and select ‚Download Video‘

NOTE Only works 4 FLASH

Emdad Rashid says:

Thank you ever so much, I have been looking to find out how to do this for months!!!! BTW you’re English is great.

kenarai1988 says:

It is my understanding YouTube server now refuse all the voluntary access to video files. I dont think it is possible unless you hack in their server.

Ammon6 says:

Grande!! Bella l’animazione che hai fatto!

By the way your english is perfectly understandable.

Mark Allan says:

I dont understand what you are doing with the terminal.

Christian Sperling says:

Hey, good video. But unfortunatly it doesn’t work. It did all the thinks you mentioned, but in the „Others“ folder there appear a looot of files, also a lot of video playback files. Not only one as in your video. I tried them all, but always a new, but empty windows opens. There is now file in the Others folder that contains the video when alt+double left click. I’d be great if you can help.

All the best!

rafaelbless de sousa says:

bparchdesign says:

.flv is youtube extension so is it right! just use vlc (the best video player ever), it open every kind of video, it’s freeware

bparchdesign says:

vlc is freeware video player for mac and windows and should recognize .flv

SrTeamPLATINUM says:

The document „videoplayback.flv“ could not be opened. The movie’s file format isn’t recognized.
