First of all, I bet you are thinking me to say to use a firefox extension that let's you download it. NO!!!! This is a bad idea. When you download, they download as an flv file. Flv is a flash formated file, and is probably one of the most useless file formats, and they are almost incompatable with everything. However, you c an convert them, but finding a program is hard. I will mention this below with GoogleVideo.
First, find the link to your youtube video that you want to download.
Next, make another window or tab and go to http://vixy.net/flv_converter
This site let's you download a youtube file in either mp3, avi, an image format, mp4, or mov with your youtube link.
Choose yoru format and copy the link and you get it. If you go to sites that have setup like youtube, it will work as well.
You may also upload an flv file if you use a firefox extension, upload it online as a direct link, t hen link that link to the converter and it willw ork as well.
Now, you can not do this with Google Video. You can download some videos, however, some have to be bought. Now what I will show you is not illegal, it is legal and allowed by Mozilla.
IF you have firefox, install this:
Then, go to your google video link that you want, right click and choose to download, now this is flv, and we will work on how to get this up.
I recommend uploading this file onto a site like http://www.myfilehut.com or ftp to your own server, then use http://vixy.net/flv_converter to convert it. Or, if you can't do that, go to http://media-convert.com and upload the file and you can convert it to whatever you want.
