WinAVI YouTube Download is a GUI-less video downloader. It should work with most online video portals out there, including YouTube, Yahoo! Video, Google Video, Metacafe, Break, etc. I personally tried it with YouTube and Yahoo! Both worked flawlessly.
As I mentioned, this application does not have a graphical user interface. You don't have to paste video URLs anywhere. The application simply detects when a video is being played and will place a button 'download' on top of the video. The button will only be shown when your mouse is over the video, so you can still watch any video without the button showing up when not wanted. After you click the "Download" button, the application will ask you for a file name and a format. The supported formats are FLV, MP4, 3GP, and MP3. The video will start downloading and it will then be converted, if you chose a format other than FLV.
I have to say that this tool worked extremely well for me. The video was downloaded very fast and the quality was awesome. I like that you can simply click on "download" whenever you want to and not have to worry about pasting URLs or opening applications.
