Realplayer puts a “Download this video” link on youtube (and other) videos.

It is a free program, but the installer will try to sell you upgrades and install toolbars. So don’t blindly hit every “OK” button, take your time.

Works in Windows XP, Vista & 7.
I have not tried it on a Mac.

download firefox, flashgot plugin and flashget. when on the youtube page, right-click and choose “flashgot media”. youtube videos are saved in flv, btw.

Sometime you can roll your mouse over the video and a little thing will pop up saying “download this video” You can download realplayer (where that thing pops up) here

yeah, the youtube downloader is the one I have always used, but I don’t know where to get it. Like @FevoIsGod said, google it. It’s kind of cheap looking, but it works well.

I use the Download Helper add-on for Firefox. It works on both Mac and Windows. It also can download videos and music files from any site. I find it quite useful.

“This“!/group.php?gid=376416120785&ref=ts uses a javascript code, and if you search enough you can find the way to bookmark it, but I forgot.
