    Well, I've managed to write a lil' script that uses youtube-dl to catch videos from youtube. Hope you'll enjoy it!

    That will take you to a page that will give you the preview of the video(like youtube) and a lot of links ...and one of them is Download Now (guess what it does )
    Yeah, but some videos are too large to download this way (for example, Weird Al Yankovic's "Trapped in the Drive-Thru" is about 11 minutes long and you get THIS error:

    The requested URL /get_video... is too large to process.

    This has happened to me on a number of occasions, from Halo 3 Montages to Sonic X episode parts (the good Japanese subbed ones, not the crappy North American english ones).

    Also, the same error message kinda ruins the magic, since it shows that Kissyoutube uses Google Video to download the file.
    Let me know if I'm being too technical - or not technical enough!

    Sorry for the double post, but here's a good [online] service that allows you to download Youtube videos:
    http://www.youtubecatcher.com/

    Whatever you do, DON'T DOWNLOAD THE TOOLBAR!!!!!
    Even if you have WINE, since it totally screwed up my computer (I couldn't get into any Internet-related programs, and had to back up my files to Windows and re-install Ubuntu - again!)

    For me the easiest of all ways was http://file2hd.com/ put in the Video Link of your choice and then mark movies and click "Get Files" then right click the one that says (Youtube Video Name).mp4 and right click and click Save Link As Download it and it is fast and downloads as mp4.

    Wow!! Works great with Ubuntu 8.10
    Been trying to use many of those downloadable programs off the web when running windows, nothing really worked well.

    It's been about 5 months now running Ubuntu, love it, no need for Windows any longer.

    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!

    KeepVid didn't work AT ALL for me...

    In windows, I used altervista's Youtube Downloader (worked really well, but didn't always get the HQ video).

    Now, I either use Youtube Grabber, or, if that doesn't work, some other online service.

    I wonder why Ubuntu hasn't gone mainstream yet?
    Oh yeah, plenty of reasons:

    1. It's free.
    2. If more people knew about Ubuntu, then they'd probably make viruses for it.
    3. It requires at least some knowledge of using the command line interface (I was just starting to learn how to use applications like Terminal; I still am).
