The Flash players are listed near the bottom of the page.

I can't tell you if or how well they work. Adobe Flash works fine for me; I have no philosophical objection to using it.

You could try the following.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
baseurl='http://youtube.com/get_video.php?'
pageurl=$1
wget -O - $baseurl`wget -qO - $pageurl | grep player2.swf | cut -d? -f2 | cut -d\" -f1`

the code above will download the youtube video to the standard output.
Just save it as youtube.sh then chmod +x

You would run it like this:
Code:

./youtube.sh URL > FILE
Change URL and FILE to meet your needs.
Then you could use xine to play FILE while its downloading.
