for the love of God and all thigns holy, please NEVER install Real player.

There are quite a few solutions, though the easiest and most practical is http://www.keepvid.com/ just copy and paste the link there. You can even select the quality you want. No hassle, no software to download.

Real player still exists? I thought that terrible software went away. I have used keepvid and it works wonderful.

try downloading "Revo Uninstaller". The free version is really good on uninstalling unwanted programs.

I have a mac and I use firefox. The add on that works great is called "Easy Youtube Video Downloader 5.4"

Works great and is really easy to use. You can download mp4's, mp3's and flv.

Keepvid is still free to use - it's the program as download which costs you.
Just type in the url of the youtube video at the top of the page, press download and then right-click (save target as) on the file which you prefer to download. Usually you will get several options with files in different formats. :)

I use http://convertfiles.com/ . Nothing to d/l and free.  One of the cool features is if your company blocks youtube, and you have a link (from a google search, et cetera) you can still get at the video. You can also convert files from your own computer.

I use the DownloadHelper (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/) firefox extension to download from youtube. Downloads videos from many websites.
