    Still looking for the same answer myself.

    I know the activity monitor is now hidden away

    in Safari / Preferences/ Advanced...

    you tick the box marked "Show develop menu in menu bar".

     

    That gives you access to the activity monitor and much else besides.

    I have no idea yet how to find the  playing video and download it.

    I had this question too.

     

    I've solved it

     

    most of the time its under: "Show Web Inspector" under the develop menu which you activate

    in Safari / Preferences/ Advanced...

    you tick the box marked "Show develop menu in menu bar".

     

    then you load the video (like always) and then you hit: cmd + alt + A as always, and you find the "Other" folder and you're video file should be there.

    This still does not tell how to download a new video from the internet.

     

    I have the "show develop menu checked" but when I do the cmd + alt + A I only see html codes and no where to actual download a new video.

     

    What am I doing wrong?

    I know, I know, I feel your pain. Seems like one step forward, two steps back.... AGAIN!

     

    I can't download from sites I could previously with Safari 5

     

    If after pressing Command+Alt+A a folder named OTHER sometimes appears, look in there for a file with an mp4 extension, I think that is the video file. I don't know yet if double clicking on it starts the download as it did previously.

    I have found that a right-mouse button click on a YouTube video pops a menu with a download this video option. It will come down as *.mp4 video.

    Really? A right clickon a YouTube video does reveal a menu but no "Download this video" option for me.

    What if there is no "other" folder or if there is no MP4 file, does that mean you can't use this method? Only some videos I can load others I can't

     

    Is there an alternative solution?

     

    Thanks

    how do i find other folder? i got to the step where i can see all html coding n developing options but still can't find "other" folder that you are mentioning? can you please guide how to find? thank you

    The folder named Other either displays itself or it doesn't. That's our problem. If it does display itself, open it and you might see a file inside with a .flv extension or an .mp4. Double click on those as before and it should download.

     

    If you can't see a folder named Other I don't believe there is anything you can do...unless I hear different!

    I think we've been told off and will have to spend the next 8 hours sitting on the naughty step.

     

    I am a bit confused as to why Safari 5 ENABLED us to breach YouTube and other content providers terms in the first place.
