I just use http://www.keepvid.com

You paste the video's URL, and you can choose which download option you want.

If you just want to download the youtube video in flv, there is an extension on Firefox to get the flv video http://www.downloadhelper.net/. Or there are sites to help you download and , if you want, convert the video for you.

I wouldn't know because I use Toast for the iMac, and it saves YT and other "embedded" videos perfectly. :)

Definitely MPEG Streamclip. It can download youtube videos and export them into almost any format, including just exporting the audio of a video. And It doesn't just do youtube videos, but also video and audio files from your drive.

uhhhhh....MPEG Streamclip does not open the flv files downloaded from Youtube and When you put a Youtube link in the inport from URL, it downloads other things

Oh I didn't know about the flv thing, I guess I've never tried it with an flv yt video. Are you saying it downloads other things when you enter any youtube URL, or just for flv files? Because if you mean any yt video then something's up cause it works for me.

there's a website called mediaconverter.org, although sometimes it either won't work or it'll take long depending on which video you choose
