    Issues Downloading Youtube vids in safari
    Here's what I'm doing :

    while video is open
    window ->
    activity ->
    find largest file.. usually several mb
    click file
    check downloads

    Before, the file would be automatically named get-video or something and I could click and play the file instantly.

    Now the file in downloads is named videoplayback.download and is nothing but a bunch of code when opened.

    I tried changing the extension to .avi, but then it just says this is not a movie file.

    any tips?
