easiest and weirdest way I have found to do it, and in multiple formats, is to type 'kiss' before youtube.com/blah blah, so if the link is: www.youtube.com/video1 in the address bar you would replace www. with 'kiss' so it will look like this: kissyoutube.com/video1 then just click which format you want to download it in.
Hope this helps!
Youtube Downloader (CNet)
YouTube Downloader is a popular, free program that enables you to download and convert online videos (legal content, to which you have the rights) for later viewing on your desktop or mobile device. It can convert files to MOV, MP4, 3GP, WMV, AVI, or MP3.
For online video enthusiasts looking to download non-copyrighted or personally owned videos, YouTube Downloader appears to be a near-perfect tool. Sure it's missing a few minor conveniences, but its simplicity and the fact that it casts such a wide net of support for online video sites make it virtually unbeatable.

Anyway, it appears YouTube wants to control content but it brings up an interesting point. If we, ATS users want to download and save important videos before they are deleted, there doesn't seem to be a good way to do so now since this ability has been taken away???
Anyone has any information on this issue?
Remember that this is your community! Each and every user of YouTube makes the site what it is, so don't be afraid to dig in and get involved!
Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means don't upload videos you didn't make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations.
