How can you download vids from YouTube etc...?

Here`s a thorny issue:

 

Is there a way of downloading videos from YouTube and similar sites?  I`ve found loads of programs that say they can do it but they don`t. I understand YouTube has installed some kinda gizmo to prevent it. Can anyone out there tell me of a download program that actually works now and from which sites? We can then convert them and watch them on endless boring train/plane journeys on our trusty 5800s.

 

Cheers, Art

"" Use download tab at top of You Tube Picture frame"

 

OK. I`ve looked, but can`t see that anywhere. Must be blind... Where exactly is it?

 

Thanks. Art
