    Hey all.
    Many of us need to download youtube videos for some reason and using some sort of tool to get the job done.
    However, there is a very simple way to (almost) instantly download your desired video.
    Simply type 'ss' between the www. and youtube :) Your 'new' url in your browser should now look like:
    http://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=k34boxNrqL8
    Thats all folks...

    Nice info man. I use the download plugin in firefox. It adds a "download" button below every video.
    but this "ss" trick is cool and can work on any browser. :)

    Safari on Mavericks on Mac (dont install flash, so it forces html player): just right click on video and choose download...

    Using Torch browser is also great for downloading youtube videos (and running torrents in a browser too).
