youtube-dl is probably in your repo.
http://rg3.github.com/youtube-dl/documentation.html

A shell script to stream to mplayer while downloading (modify as you like)
Code:
#!/bin/sh

echo "Enter URL"
while read URL
do
mplayer -cookies -cookies-file /tmp/cookies.txt $(youtube-dl -g --cookies /tmp/cookie.txt "$URL")
done
or after it downloads
Code:
youtube-dl -f 18 --get-url http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abcd | xargs mplayer

Look at the source for the page and get the URl of the video file.
Also look at
http://www.google.com/search?q=rtmpdump
http://www.google.com/search?q=wget

If you have Java installed and functioning correctly, you can use SaveVid.com or KeepVid.com.

If you've got a Java runtime installed, you could also use JDownloader as a standalone tool.
