    Try Snapz Pro X

    I have used Snapz Pro X... you can record what's on your screen, with sound...I've done that a few times with YouTube videos...It's not free, but it works, and is a great all-around application to have on your Mac.

    My vote would be for Snap-Pro X too. Not a free program but very very handy does so much. And for DVD's Cinematize 2 Pro.

    Here is what you can do if you use Safari:


    First, go to the page with the video you want, load it, or press play to start streaming.

    Second, While its loading, or done loading, go to Activity under the Window Menu. Find your video in the drop-down menus/folders. Your video should be the largest file. To download this file, just double click the file/weblink. Once, it is downloaded you might need to find a program to play it, most of the time it will be a Flash File [FLV]. Maybe something like VisualHub, could convert the video to QuickTime?

    That is exactly what i do
    it downloads then you have to add the .flv to the end of the filename
    i throw it in visualhub and it works great
