Look for Clipgrab. It's free and captures the YT vids great. I found out about it here, from someone I can't seem to remember.

EDIT: Never mind everything below. If you just want to grab a video real quick use ClipGrab


So... I hadn't used it in awhile but this reminded me of youtube-dl. I love this utility.

For me, the easiest way to get it is with homebrew:
[brew.sh]


Then just do a 'brew install youtube-dl'

<The forum is shortening my links, hovering over should give you the gist of the difference>

For me, new Nine Inch Nails came out today. I can snag the video by doing
youtube-dl [www.youtube.com]


And boom! It grabs it. It's command line so it's not like it's a pretty interface or anything but it's super powerful. My favorite thing so far is being able to download all videos from a page like this:
youtube-dl [www.youtube.com]


Yeah, same command but you just put in the users page address and then I'm downloading all 67 videos NIN has published.

I'm going to check out this ClipGrab and I'll edit this after playing around.

EDIT: ClipGrab is pretty cool. In fact, if all you want to do is grab a video here and there this is the tool you should be using. I wouldn't be surprised if it uses youtube-dl in the background.
