I'm using Mozilla Firefox on Ubuntu 10.10, suddenly I don't find the video I'm browsing in "/tmp" nor in the browser cache "/home/.mozilla/firefox/cache", where else can I find the streaming video I'm browsing?

Is there any easy way to download videos from youtube.com, etc. on Ubuntu?

The new Flash Player no longer stores the videos in /tmp but in Firefox' cache, which does not allow you to extract it as easily as just copying it... You need to downgrade to an earlier Flash version (10.1.102.64 at most). Get it here.

However, I'd recommend using an up-to-date Flash Player, since new versions contain bug fixes and security patches. You can download Youtube video's through websites like KeepVid, Flash Video Downloader and SaveTube.

Otherwise, use a Firefox add-on like Flash Video Downloader's.

Same problem. Use the DownloadHelper addon instead.
