You don't say how you'd like to download them, so I can only guess it'll be through your browser. There are several Firefox extensions that will let you save YouTube videos.

Thanks farslayer! I was able to download the video but the extension is .flv how can I open flv files? which player should I use? when i open it with flash nothing comes up to the screen (all white) and if I try Kaffeine a Search for suitable codecs come up. I already tried installing the Codecs which intalled ok but then when I try to open the downloaded video the box comes up again.

VLC is always the right answer

between VLC and mplayer you can get just about any media format to play on your Linux box.

Looks like you need to add the pacman repository then you should be able to install it through yast..
