    You can use Safari. Open the Activity window, and then go to the clip. The activity window will list all of the files and objects that were downloaded -- there will be a lot. However, the largest one (several megabytes in size) will be the video itself. Double-click on it and you will see it download again to your desktop. You will need a player program such as VLC to play it again.

    Try this.

    It downloads the videos straight to mp4. No conversion needed. They drop straight into iTunes etc. :)

    Create a bookmark in your menu bar and cut and paste the script in the attached text doc as the new address.

    When you have a Youtube video you want. Press your bookmark. It will pop a "Download as MP4" link into the Youtube page. Just right click and save and you're done.

    Nice, but getting a lousy youtube video should be free.
