Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been able to cp /tmp/flash* to a permanent address to store youtube videos. This is no longer possible.
I have read that the files can be found in a range of locations. Scripts using lsof haven't worked for me, or perhaps I just don't understand what I am doing with them...
Another potential solution was to look in .mozilla/firefox etc. It took me a while to realise I could just run: file .mozilla/firefox/p*.default/Cache to see what all the files were. I located the following;
.mozilla/firefox/p275n3o0.default/Cache/F53125B3d01: Macromedia Flash data (compressed), version 10
That seemed to be what I was after but when I ran it through totem I got a message;
GStreamer encountered a general supporting library error.
I am not sure what my next step is from here. It seems to be an appropriate file.
BTW Youtube videos play ok on my Lenny based system. Planning to upgrade to the new Wheezy when it is released...
I couldn't get the jdownloader or Firefox extension to work but the flashgot program works ok. Still feel a little sad not being able to use a standard Debian program though. Any clues as to why clive/cclive aren't working?
Thanks to everybody who replied, I do appreciate it.
What went wrong with JDownloader or Video DownloadHelper?
What do you mean with "standard Debian program"?
Never used clive/cclive, but I guess they should work ok if you use the latest version available.
