Safari Browser users are now given with a awesome feature within the browser itself which allows them to download any video from most Video hosting websites like Youtube.com with the Activity Window. This is a inbuilt browser feature which would display you a list of all the stuff which are being downloaded when you load any website. If there is any video file on that specific web page, then that would also be displayed and this set of tools are going to display you all the activity running on the browser backend.
This is one of the most effective and easiest way to download your favorite Youtube videos directly to your computer. The video is available in .flv format which is flash format, easily available to convert to other formats through which you can run the same videos on other devices. Just access any of your favorite videos at youtube.com on the Safari browser and then click on the Window > Activity which will display a list of Browser Activity in a new window.
To monitor how webpages load:
Choose Window > Activity, and then open the webpage. The Activity window lists each element loaded by the page.
To open an element in its own window, double-click it.
Next you need to double click on the Activity item which you have found to be the actual video file. This can be easily found with the size of the file because most web pages would be less than 1 mb in size and the videos in most cases are always above 1 mb in size. Once you double click on the Activity Address, you will find that a new window would be opened asking you if you would like to Save or Open a file. Click on the save button and the browser will start downloading the Youtube video to your computer directly.
