    Why not just use a program. Look for UltraGet Video Downloader.. Just add bunch of links and let it download.

    Home Page:
    In case anyone is interested, linux users can use youtube-dl (if debian, apt-get that), then make a list of your urls and run a simple loop like:

    for i in `cat list`; do youtube-dl -t "${i}"; done

    I haven't tried watermarking in linux yet...but plan to tonight, this youtube stuff works REALLY well!

    Besides YouTube-DL is there anything you guys recommend, because Ultraget doens't work anymore. I'm getting the same problem these guys are getting:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hV2A0TuY40

    It says 'login failed'

    None of these videos should even require logging in.

    I'm looking at Video-Tube but don't want to install any dependencies. Wondeering if there's something else out there?

    Just add a new Favorite in your Favorites folder...any fav will do. Then overwrite the pointed to URL in that fav with the script below, and save it.

    Now click that fav when viewing a YouTube video. You'll see a link appear right under the description that says "Download as MP4 (right-click and select Save target as)".

    Click that and you've got the video on your hard drive now...

    Be sure to change the first 8 to an a....

    Code:
    j8vascript:if%20(document.getElementById('download-youtube-video')==null%20&&%20!!(document.location.href.match(/http://[a-zA-Z.]*youtube.com/watch/)))%20{var%20yt_mp4_path='http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt=18&video_id='+swfArgs['video_id']+'&t='+swfArgs['t'];%20var%20div_embed=document.getElementById('watch-embed-div');div_embed.innerHTML=div_embed.innerHTML+'<br%20/>%20<span%20id='download-youtube-video'><a%20href=''+yt_mp4_path+''>Download%20as%20MP4</a>%20'+%20%20((navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Safari')!=-1)?'(control-click%20and%20select%20<i>Download%20linked%20file%20as</i>)':('(right-click%20and%20select%20<i>Save%20'+%20(navigator.appName=='Microsoft%20Internet%20Explorer'?'target':'link')%20+'%20as)</i>'))+'</span>';}void(0);
    Edit:
    Sorry...didn't notice that you wanted to be able to dl a list of videos unattended. This script obviously won't work for that. ;)
