Does anyone know what software is best to rip youtube videos with?

I need to get a copy of a lecture on youtube, and I'm not sure how to save the flv file to my desktop. Any help is appreciated, as I need to be able to view this file offline -

The lecture is called "An Anthropological introduction to youtube"

Yep just the video. If you did this for me it would be amazing! I need to watch this for my course, but won't have inet for the next few days so you would be doing me a huge favour :love:

alright, it's pretty big and for some reason it's downloading the site slow but i'm doing it. probably should take about 20 minutes to rip and then i'll just up it to mediafire or something. you'll have it within the next hour or so (less) for sure.

if you need it faster, you can save flv files easily if you have firefox by downloading some plug-in called DownloadHelper and just pressing play on the youtube video. the icon next to your address bar will start flashing and if you click the little drop down button next to it it will give you the option of downloading the flv. this also works for grabbing mp3's and stuff from webpages quickly.

I was talking about Floppy. I don't hate you by any stretch of the imagination - no matter how much fun you make of my awesome hair.

Nah thanks man! that is a great help. I just need it before tommorow, as I'll be flying and leaving my beloved inet connection behind :)

Also thanks for the firefox tip :)

I didn't think that was a real site when I saw it on google search... it seemed too obvious :)
