    I need to save a video off youtube, but there is no option for saving on the page nor the right-click. Help?

    What's the url?

    Sometimes, if you right-click on the actual video, it will give you the filename. Is it work-safe? If so, post a link to the video here and I'm guessing someone will find a way to do it.

    VideoDownloader Firefox Extension works great if you are using Firefox.

    Doesn't the video file have to be downloaded onto your hard drive to view it anyway?, just like everything else, or does it just go into RAM, I want to put some youtubes on a DVD myself, do you think you could watch them on TV? ... anyone ???

    The issue with youTube videos is they are flash files which means the standard methods for viewing / saving them aren't going to work. The firefox extension mentioned by daddyhominum works though.
    But this is all a moot point as the video in the link you provided has been taken down as it was posted without the authors permission

    This downloader should work for you. You just have to insert the url and download it. After that (and I'm just going from memory here) you'll have to change the extension to .flv
    Once that's done you'll need a media player that will play these Flash movies, unless you convert them. I've used VLC Player without any problems... and FLV Player will obviously work as well.

    Nothing will. The video was removed by YouTube as it was not authorized to be distributed (used without permission).

    (that's from the link)
