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!

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  or flashgot

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
