No. I have three valid solutions. Other people in this thread have also valid solutions. Yours is valid as well.

I'm out. No need to repeat ONCE MORE what I already stated in a couple or three posts.

Why install more software with possible malicious add-ons when the damn video is already downloaded onto your hard drive when you watched it once???????
Video might or might not be on your harddrive. When content is streamed it is supposed to be downloaded into small buffer, and only one part of it should be available at time. So it isn't necessarily completely available.

It isn't true. What is on your drive isn't necessarily yours. Even if you could watch/listen to it.

My compliments to everyone who did not rise to the flame bait. BTW, I reported the 2 most obnoxious posts.

Good choice! If one can't rely on the discussions being friendly and open minded, I'm sure plenty of LQ's members will find somewhere else to post their questions.

Wow, a very straightforward thread went to pot in absolutely no time at all! Reality check, now that I am here, there is exactly one (1) geniarse in this thread. That is the official XavierP stance on the matter.

Joking aside, to paraphrase the rules, feel free to challenge other member's views, opinions and suggestions if you have a valid objection, but do so in a polite and respectful manner. The person you call an idiot today may have the answer to your own problem tomorrow!

Read above, please, when I talk about "youtube-dl". Is that what you mean or would this "youtube-wget" be different in some way? Just curious

It works much like wget

Code:
youtube-dl 'http://url-to-youtube-video-page' -o out_file.flv

There is also a plugin for firefox call download helper that will give you an icon that will light up when there is footage to download.

youtube-dl also works great. Usually I will start downloading the clip with youtube-dl and after about 1/2 a meg has downloaded, I will start viewing it.
If it crap, I will stop it and delete without waisting anymore bandwidth.
If it is good, watch it over and over again.

Offhand I don't recall the path of the firefox cache, find it first. Probably it is a hidden folder under the home directory of the user.
This is what I do ( I use Opera under wine):
First empty the existing cache in the browser.
Then allocate sufficient space in the browser for the cache - a 100 MB is a bare minimum considering the average size of flv videos.
Then keep the cache folder open in Konqueror.
Then visit the youtube site and the video you want to view.
Monitor the cache folder as soon as a particular video has been completely downloaded. Sorting the cache folder on size will ease the process. Usually the largest file is the flv file. In Opera since the cache files do not retain their original extension, I use a script to rename the files - after copying them to another folder.

For best results, avoid browsing other sites while doing this.

Unless you have a good reason to convert to avi, the VLC Media player will play flv videos well.
I just did something similar with Firefox in Mac OS X. I'm on dial-up, so I paused the video till it completely downloaded. Then navigated to: /Users/your_user/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/xxxx.default/Cache and found a large file called DE89E2340 or something, I copied it to my /home directory and renamed it to: vid.flv and watched it on VLC. For some reason in Mac OS X using firefox, renaming with the .mov extension does not work, has to be .flv.
I rebooted to Windows and watched it with media player classic also.
