Easily download YouTube movies via Safari
Authored by: recordlikedaniel on Jan 08, '12 08:56:12AM

I have used this method of finding the video in the Activity window for 1 or 2 years now, but just within the last month or so I can't find the video file with MB sizes anymore! It's just not there... I'm on Snow Leopard running Safari 5.1.2.
Is anyone else noticing this? I wonder if youtube has hidden their links in javascript or something?

Daniel

I also thought it wasn't working anymore. Some of the file sizes now seem to be hidden, and none of the displayed file sizes seems big enough to be the video file.

So I tried to download random files within the list of the Activity window. I found out that I could still download the video (with the method described above) when choosing one of the three files named "http://o-o.preferre...". Two of these files download as "generate_204.html" files while the other one downloads as videoplayback.mp4.
