For the YouTube videos, you must change the file extension to .flv and then play it using a flv player. However, if you want to convert the flv to something else like an avi file, then you can do so by using CinemaForge 2.0 pretty easily.

I do this quite a bit.

First, you have to download and then install google player, it must be the last version, then after you choose the video in quistion, on the right align, you are to click on the "download this video" then the google player will open and start downloading immediately.
