Easily download YouTube movies via Safari
Authored by: Hauberg on Apr 23, '07 07:55:53AM

You can also bookmark this and click on it for downloading the movie in the frontmost tab/window:

javascript:window.open('http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id='+window.location.href.split('?')[1].match(/v=([^(&|$)]*)/)[1]+'&t='+document.getElementById('movie_player').src.match(/t=([^(&|$)]*)/)[1]);

Unfortunately I can't remember where I originally found it.

I like these little scripts myself, I have one that puts the URL your viewing in Safari into the body of an email ready to send using Mail. Thanks for this it'll be added to my Bookmark Bar.

I was using this page in a tab for downloading Youtube videos. Just cut and paste the videos url.

Good suggestion, but I found a newer and more reliable way to save the video. It's a Mac OSX software app just makes the whole process much easier for yourself. I don't have to copy/paste all that java code every time. It's a free program called "fastest youtube downloader" (fastestyoutubedownloader.com) to download and also convert it to an mp3 or whatever format I want at the same time. It's really slick... you should be using if you're at all serious about saving youtube videos.
