    I use KeepVid and TubeTV. Both work great for me.

    This is a good recommendation, but I believe it only works in Safari.


    I would say this is definitely the easiest/fastest solution out there.
    It is a javascript and it requires no installing of anything. While watching a video simply click the on the bookmark and a download dialogue will appear. Click on it and it'll download straight to your computer in mp4 format.

    I use Cosmopod. It adds a button in the Safari toolbar. You just click it and it automatically downloads whichever flash based video is currently playing.

    I use vixy.net (downloaded version). Mainly because its fast and the quality seems okay (especially in HD).
