Does anyone know of a good, free program that can be used to download videos from YouTube? I know I could find something by Googling, but why bother taking the time if someone already knows of something that works, is free, and is free of malware/spyware.

I've been monitoring rightwing extremists on YouTube since they started showing up at Sarah Palin rallies last fall, and have found they tend to panic a lot and take down all their videos. Then they get their prescriptions refilled and start posting up more vidoes.

I'd like to be able to make copies of their videos so I have them available after they have been removed.

Though I have the sense I am giving a loaded gun to a chimp.

May the god I don't believe in have mercy on my soul.

LOL!

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm going to go with DoctorSkeptic's recommendation, because it's just an upgrade to an existing program, rather than a whole new piece of software. And, well, because the owner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Glaser) of RealNetworks is a major Democratic Party donor. http://www.spartantailgate.com/forums/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

Oh, awesome. I just upgraded my RealPlayer to version 11, and just like that, I can now download any YouTube video.

Thank you very much!
