Youtube videos can also be preserved manually.

Start playing a video while watching the /tmp directory. You will see a file appear, named something like FlashVHOzj1 or similar. When the video is fully buffered, but before it is completely done playing, copy that file to somewhere else. Rename it to "something.flv" and enjoy. Smiley
