If you're using Firefox, you can get the add-on called "DownloadHelper", which is the best Flash downloader I've used. Once you have that
installed and you're watching a YouTube video, refresh the page, right-click the page and select "DownloadHelper", then go to "Media" and it will
give you a choice to download the video in 360p, 480p, etc.
Also, Realplayer can download YouTube videos as well. Realplayer can even take that video and convert it to whatever format you want, including .wmv
which can be played in Windows Media Player.
When installing Realplayer, it will install an add-on in Firefox so that you can download YouTube videos (videos on other sites as well).
