    Step 1

    Get the url to the video

    hxxp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4y78gxev2I

    Step 2


    Open your browser and enter

    hxxp://www.youtube.com/v/Z4y78gxev2I

    This will make the browser redirect to

    hxxp://www.youtube.com/swf/l.swf?video_id=Z4y78gxev2I&rel=1&eurl=&iurl=http%3A//img.youtube.com/vi/Z4y78gxev2I/default.jpg&t=OEgsToPDskJWo7XsunUVzLcoBbKXn7Nf


    Step 3

    Open this url in your browser

    hxxp://www.youtube.com/get_video.php?video_id=V3BsjxDZJM0&t=OEgsToPDskKzlTMEFZ1jOh40Xc3qOxzQ

    The variables in red will be different in your videos, so make sure you replace them.

    Once you type the last url in, you'll get a download prompt. Make sure you save the video with a .flv extension.

    That's cool but it would be cooler if you could download the video in the avi/mpeg/wmv extension :)

    The video is essentially a .flv file so it cant be converted to another format without using conversion software on it. I only gave this method out coz someone posted a while ago that one of the downloaders that he was using wasn't working with youtube.

    This is one cool site that will do what you want

    I've even used it to only rip the audio from music videos and the output is so fuckin awesome inspite of the small file size( guess they use some uber advanced codec), it puts a lot of the music I get of morpheus pale in comparison

    If you don't want any third party site you could get a coder to make a downloader and encoder using ffmpeg if you want to....
