There are a number of web site you can go through to download videos from sites like YouTube to your one system, like KeepVid -- but you have to wonder if such sites are tracking what you do. Clicking on the All-In-One Video Bookmarklet while on YouTube, Google Video, Metacafe, Myspace, Break.com, Putfile, Dailymotion, Sevenload, MyVideo.de or Clipfish.de and the bookmarklet will give you the locationj of the video you are watching so you can download it yourself -- without going through any third party web sites.
The All-In-One Video Bookmarklet is a simple solution to a common desire: to keep a copy of the great video you just saw on YouTube. Unfortunately, while it works in Firefox and Opera, it does not work in IE. For those who use Greasemonkey on Firefox, the All-In-One Video Bookmarklet page includes Greasemonkey scripts that duplicate and extend the bookmarklet's functionality. The web page also has some suggestions for freeware that will allow Windows users to view some of the more unusual video formats (like Flash Video). Quite a bit of good information on one web page.
