    I think the same as Windows: you have to download an extension for Firefox. Then you can watch the downloaded videos with vlc

    You install the Video Download Helper add-on for Firefox.

    Or, you can watch the video you want, then while the window is still open, copy the file from /tmp.

    You do not need extensions to do that...
    Watch the video online. After that check the tmp folder in your file system. The video will be there. Just copy it from there to another folder. That's it! Very, very simple...

    I use KeepVid

    Just drag the bookmarklet into your bookmarks.

    Play a YouTube (etc) video, click the Keep It! bookmark and it generates a download link.
