It used to be in Safari 5 and such I could open the Activity Viewer with ⌘⌥A, but no longer in Safari 6. How then do I download embedded files such as Flash Video from a website for offline viewing in Safari 6? Is there a Safari Extension (my Google-fu hasn't turned up anything useful on that front)?
Ok, I figured this out last night. Due to a weird flaw in the Inspector, I didn't notice this before.
If you intend to download anything loaded via a plugin you must have the inspector open before you have the plugin load the resource. This is easiest when the site does not autoload/play a video or music file. ClickToPlugin is particularly helpful in this regard.
- Enable the debug menu if you haven't. (Preferences > Advanced)
- Go to the web page of the resource you want. (e.g. http://www.example.com/kittenvideo.html)
- Pull up the inspector. ⌘⌥A now pulls up the Inspector.
- Now load the resource you want to download.
- Back to the inspector, look at the list of files. Look for audio, video, etc under the Other folder.
- Select the resource you want, then look to the right of the window under location and copy the full URL.
- Open the Download window (⌘⌥L)
- Paste the URL in the Downloads window to download.
So now there are just a few extra steps, but the paste to the downloads still works as before.
