    The easiest way is with Safari.

    Goto the page with the video (Youtube etc.)
    Goto Window --> Activity (This lists all the files being downloaded)
    Find the video and click it (Usually the largest one)
    command-c to copy the address
    Goto Window --> Downloads
    command-v to paste address and start downloading

    easy as that =]

    I use a Firefox add-on called Video DownloadHelper. Simple to use, gives you a list of what's on the page for you to download, works really well.

    keepvid.com Downloads and coverts all in one step. Can't be any simpler, and nothing to download besides your video.

    I use Cosmopod. It adds a button to the Safari toolbar. You click it and the video that is currently playing gets downloaded and converted into the format you need.
