How to download flagged Youtube videos?

Most of the video sites have restrictions on flagged video download and a start-up is still to start up that will do the job.Till then here are a couple of techniques to get the job done.

For firefox users
One of the reasons i have been sticking with firefox for a while is the large pool of add-ons they have on their site.They help me get things done without using any external tool.One among such is Download helper.It traces any flv,ram,mpg,mpeg,avi,rm,wmv,mov,asf,mp3 content embedded on a page and gives a download link to that file.And yes it works with Youtube flag videos to.Not only Youtube but with all other video sharing sites including Dailymotion and Eyespot.
You can get Download helper add-on from here.
If you haven't got firefox yet,this is the perfect reason to get it.

For non-firefox users
This is slightly time consuming at least for once.The alternative to Download helper is a lightweight software called Tubegrab.It is available for download at Techrepublic but to download it you have to go through a one time registration.This downloads Youtube flagged ones only.You can get Tubegrab from here.
