There's an add-on to Firefox (unless you are using the EVIL Firefox 4) called Video Download Helper. It has a multi colored icon you click on to download a video you are watching.

When you watch them in your browser, they should be downloaded to the /tmp directory. If you clear your /tmp folder, go to the youtube page then look at the files in it, you should hopefully be able to spot which one is the video

EDIT: Just thought, I think I did that pre-VEVO. I don't know whether it will still work... Best of luck either way
