if you use firefox you can download videos from say sites like youtube. 2 good one's I know of are sothlink web video downloader http://www.sothinkmedia.com/web-video-downloader-firefox/  or flashgot http://flashgot.net/features

I used to use sothlink but since Ive upgraded to latest firefox, I now use flashgot. Its pretty neat, I use it for downloads also along with jdownloader. I should of used this earlier lol.

some other tools out there also for ie, have a websearch for it. I have not tried it for IE as I find firefox easy

You can also use the free version of Real Player. Just Google for it.

Once it is installed, a Download button appears when your mouse's cursor is placed over a downloadable video embedded in any web page.

If the button does not appear, just select this option in the Download section of Preferences.  

Good Luck!
