    That is AMAZING!

    It even works for pages that youtube video downloaders can't download from like http://youtube.com/watch?v=FhAdjEvyWEk

    Here is the easy way:

    Step 1: Find the video you want to download and wait for it to completely finish loading.

    Step 2: Minimize your browser (do NOT close it, some browsers delete the temp directory upon closing), and navigate to the directory /tmp

    Step 3: Drag the flash file onto your desktop. Voila!

    This definitely works with firefox, and probably most other browsers aswell. Enjoy!
    Wow man; this is really simple and simply great
    does not require any software (as long as one is watching it on computer , no conversion needed)
    Long Live Ubuntu !

    haha..pretty sweet stuff indeed ..
    There is also keepvid.com or something like this
    You copy the link of the video into keepvid.com(there is an input to copy the link to)and you press download..and that's it

    i let the vid complete downloading, switch to /temp, and get the flash-video copied onto the desktop. however, when i go back to firefox, the browser crashes if i cut-and-pasted the file. it seems you may only copy, not cut.

    I just drag it. Maybe firefox is looking for the file that no longer exists.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe commonsense
    FATAL: Module commonsense not found.

    FYI, youtube-dl has been updated (since youtube itself was updated and broke the old version!)
    Feisty repos have the old version. Don't know about gutsy.

    Link is here here (provided by forum-user hyperair)

    I wonder which temp directory to look for in 'Internet explorer' . Couldn't find it in 'temporary files'.
    Long Live Ubuntu !

    I have written a little PyGTK video downloader (also commandline) for that; http://code.google.com/p/vdown/
    *promote*

    I hope that's OK here

    Looks like that (also German):
