Saving Youtube Videos To Computer?

I'd really like to know if there is a fast and easy way to save youtube videos to my computer. I've tried downloading all sorts of programs and they either don't work right or require me to keep downloading more and more programs. I'd like to save videos without having to clutter up my computer with tons of useless programs. Is this possible? What is the quickest, most efficient way?

    I think will work best for you. It's free, fast and easy, no (software) downloads required. All you need is the URL of the YouTube video.

    Copy and paste the address to the box that says "URL" on Vixy and then click "Start" to start converting the video. Once the conversion is completed, a message box will appear, asking you whether to "open file with..." or "save to disk".

    Check the "Save to disk" option and once the download is complete, you'll be able to view it. The downloaded file icon should appear on your desktop.

    Hope that helps, because it works for me.

    Firefox extension called VideoDownloader. Personally, I like flashgot better, but it requires a download manager and doesn't always work with some pages.
