With the support of html5 embedded in YouTube videos, most of the Mac OS X users would prefer to a HTML5 standard which doesn’t require Adobe’s Flash plug-in. It’s very easy to download common YouTube and YouTube HD videos off net with some online sites or free YouTube downloader software. But for those who want to download YouTube HTML 5 videos for offline enjoyment wouldn’t be an easy thing, because most of the online websites and developers haven’t updated their sites and software with support for YouTube HTML5 video downloading or Mac OS X Lion compatibility.

It seems that we can download the HTML 5 videos from YouTube to computer directly without any third-party software, add-on or website? But have you ever try this out? When we click the “Save Video As” sub-menu, YouTube will direct us to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” video page, the truth is that the “Save Video As” sub-menu can’t help us to save any YouTube HTML5 video. In this article, I’ll show you two ways to FREE download YouTube HTML5 videos on the latest Mac OS X Lion.
