    Right guys, I keep accidentally managing to download YouTube Videos. Don't ask how- I'll head to a video on YouTube, click somewhere, and suddenly my downloads window will pop, downloading "video.mp4" which is the video I'm watching, and then launching it in QuickTime. I cannot for the life of me manage to recreate this, or work out what it is I'm doing when it happens!

    Any ideas guys, it's kinda weird?!

    Ah! After days trying to work this out, I found it just after posting! It seems to be a feature of Click2Flash - if you manage to right click just before the video loads ands starts to play, a menu option gives you the option to "Download H.264." Seems I was somehow doing this completely by accident. Nice feature though.
