Then, in Safari, go to the top bar, select "Window" > "Activity," a little window will pop up, expand the text that is the video you want to download from youtube. Next, look to the right where you see a bunch of numbers indicating file size 3.6 KB, 2.4 KB etc. Look for one that you can see loading, for example 5.2 of 23.9 MB < This is the file you want to download. Next, select it and copy it. Now, Go to "Window" > "Downloads." Paste what you previously copied into this window and your video will begin downloading immediately. If the video you want on Youtube has a higher quality, make sure that is selected in the Youtube window so that your getting the best quality.

Next,  Open Mpeg Streamclip, go to the top bar, select FILE < Open URL and paste the URL into the box. From here you can either download the original file youtube is hosting, or convert it from its native codec/container into whatever codec you're editing in, i.e. Prores 422.
