How To Video: Download YouTube videos with Safari

1:16 /

There are plenty of YouTube videos you watch that you want to save, and we show you how to do that with Safari.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Brian Tong: There's probably been countless times where you saw a YouTube movie and you wanted an easy way to download it. I'm Brian Tong from cnet.com, and I'll show you how to do it using just a Safari web browser. Now, let's open up Safari and go to YouTube. And I'm gonna find a video that I like from CNET TV. And if we look here, we have the Nexus One versus iPhone prize fight. So let's go with that one. Now, as it's loading and playing, go to the menu bar, to Window, and then Activity. A window will appear, and each line here represents a tab or window you currently have open in Safari. Find the one that's your YouTube tab. Then click on the triangle to reveal a list of items related to that tab. There's surely a lot of stuff here, but if you look closely, you'll find the largest file in that list. It's going to be a video file, and you should still see it downloading. And we found ours right here. Now, once it's finished, hold down the Option button on your keyboard and double-click your mouse. The file will now download directly to your computer, and now you can watch it whenever you want, or use it to create those popular YouTube mash-ups and response videos. I'm Brian Tong for cnet.com with your "how to" for downloading YouTube videos in Safari. Use it wisely. ^M00:01:14 [ Music ]
