    Google Youtube downloader. I havent seen whats out there, but my father uses one of these and he says it does a good job. I do it harder involving going to Temporary Internet folder, look for .FLV, and then I use a converter to make .mpg or .avi.

    The other way is to register at YouTube (no cost) and then save these videos in your "Favorites".

    You tube video are not really for download. They are streamed and just shown in the window. Most of the converters out there are just screen recorders and work with varying results. Dave is right, if you can actually download a FLV file get a converter that can convert FLV to mpeg or avi for you PC users or .mov for mac people. The flash server securities are changing you may find out one day that getting a actual FLV file may no longer work.
