There are couple of software available to download videos from youtube.com, To download videos from terminal you can use following software

  1. clive
  2. cclive
  3. youtube-dl

You can install them using following command

yum install clive cclive youtube-dl

If you are looking for a way to download videos from firefox there are lot of video downloader firefox addons available on the internet.

Please note that it isn't legal to download videos from youtube. No one but YOU are responsible. http://youtubeking10.blogspot.com/2010/09/is-it-illegal-to-download-youtube-video.html

You can also use JDownloader - it it's pretty powerful when it comes to downloading things and managing downloads. Also it gives you options on the format of the file which you download, like .flv or .mp4.

You can you websites like savevideo.me

OR

add save to before the url

e.g.

http://saveyoutube.com/watch?v=dmWdYJTsKbM

You will need Java installed

My choice is Video Download Capture. I also install several browers for working request and this tool satisfied me a lot. It can record streaming video from any websites like youtube etc and also works on record live videos.

If you don't like to install any app to download youtube videos free, just visit the online service - videoripper.me to do it directly.

In addition to reply from sagarun, you may need rtmpdump to download videos which are protected[1].

https://bitbucket.org/rg3/youtube-dl/wiki/Home">youtube-dl and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easy-youtube-video-downl-10137/">firefox extension work really well for me. If I am correct, youtube-dl is available via yum from fedora repo.
