Fifefox is probably the easiest since it is bundled up as a extension.

There are a lot of sites that will convert a youtube video to an MP3, AVI, etc… From there it’s just burning as usual.

Type “convert youtube to MP3” in google. Pick a free one.

I use the flashgot plugin. Works on almost every streaming site.
It also allows you to rip entire galleries from a page.

If you can download it, youtubedownloader has worked pretty well for me. It can turn it into an avi, mp4, mp3, etc. file. There’s a lot to name. It’s free, but it gets updated a lot.

Try either software programs like Freemake Video Downloader or Icecream Media Converter (it works with YouTube videos as well). Or go with ClipConverter or SaveFrom that are both online.
