There are several Firefox extensions for that.

I use the "Easy YouTube Video Downloader" extension in Firefox. You can download video (and audio only if you want) in several formats.

Are you using the latest version of the script?

You can download it from here http://rg3.github.com/youtube-dl/download.html

mndar is correct. This (suddenly getting an error that youtube-dl isn't working) happens every so often. In every case, it's always worked for me once I downloaded the latest version. It's working fine for me.

This discussion http://lists.fedoraproject.org/piper...er/425095.html has (among the usual noise) some other options, just so you know.

I use an application called Clipgrab that works quite well for that.

Thanks, inkrypted.
The official binary works just fine in F17. Very neat app, with great interface and all necessary settings.

Your welcome. Glad I could help. I like it because it works for more than just Youtube and it lets you save as video or audio.
