Please help!!
Thank u ….

thegreatMSG says:

Hey good news.. I just tried this method with HD videos and it still works! (only for HD videos) because in standard video YT the video seem to be splitting the video files into several links/segments but HD video still load as one link. =D

thegreatMSG says:

Yes currently it does not work.. however I believe that this method will surely able to work again in the future after YT made further changers..

Is there a way to do this by going through the pages „source“ in Google Chrome?

BigAgitator says:

thank you much!

benforshay1 says:

Option-Double Click!

PhillipJohns821 says:

Thanks for that. I thought I’d have to download a program like when I was using a Windows PC. Mine put the .flv extension straight onto it.

gtarszzz says:

You can also download by just adding the word ‚want‘ (ie: …….. -> …ww.wantyoutube…)

camilosae says:

icant get the .swf file, the activity window download a .html file… what can i do? thanks!!

Jeff Korhorn says:

False. This doesn’t work for me anymore on my Safari for my Mac.

johnLSU says:

Just hold Option(ALT) and double click on the biggest file on Activity window. This video is old. Safari has changed its ways…

7vSam7 says:

awwww look at the old youtube

SuperGoldenGlory2001 says:

okay thank u!:)

crescent87 says:

I’ve got QT Ver 10.0
But as I said on my second comment it’s best to hold Option key while double clicking the largest file. Simply much quicker.

SuperGoldenGlory2001 says:

please tell me what version u have cuz when i do this it says this is not a URL that QT Understands

rkukentertainment says:

Tip: Hold Option key at the same time as double clicking, that will just download the file, rather than opening it in a new window. Many YouTube videos are mp4 so play in a new browser window when you double click them, holding Option (or Alt dep on keyboard) simply downloads the file.

DrBusma says:

im using mac.. when i double klik , a new window opens . wht to do?


Thanks very much!! I’m a new Mac user and it helped me a lot 🙂

princeoftennischibis says:

when i opened the url this box pops up saying tht its not valid…

TheMUSEism says:

use MPEG-Streamclip to convert them to .mov as .flv is not very good with Final Cut Pro.

Sachtardy says:

bravo bravo.

Macs can get viruses, it’s just a lot less likely and Macs have better security.
