Youtube and Google video downloaders ?

I would like to save some videos I see in You Tube so that I could see them myself later on and also save pictures taken from those videos. Is that possible? Does it exist any free software or application that easily allows such video-photo captures?

Generally this is done by way of browser plugins. Have a look around your browser of choice's extensions gallery.

You can also stream the video to VLC media player and save it that way. See this video for details.

You can use the dwhelper firefox plugin. It works for many more sites than YouTube as well.
