For youtube, I use youtube-dl, which you can get from the package
manager on Ubuntu (or just download the script.) This way, I can
download the videos directly on my file server at home, instead of
having to use Firefox to download the file and then manually copy it
On the command line:
youtube-dl -t http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8ejt5vXTek
youtube-dl -t m8ejt5vXTek
You can use this script to download single videos or entire youtube
playlists. I use the -t option so the video title is in the filename.
Normally, I also use --no-mtime so that when I sort the videos by
modification date, they are in the order that I downloaded them,
instead of the order they were uploaded to Youtube.
