The geneiric firefox extension (will work on any platform)">) I have used both ,they gave satisfactory performance. Video-downloader is more general.

Doesn't require Java. Just copy paste the URL, check for the website to analyze the video and choose your desired format and quality (I always choose MP4 and 720p). If the format you want is not available by default, you can have it converted on the site's servers before you download it. It is very fast, and works flawlessly for me.

It's not an application, but I felt that I should make a suggestion regardless.
