One of the frustrating things about websites that use Flash video is
that they rarely provide links to let you download the video files for
offline viewing or transcoding/syncing to portable devices like the
Sony PSP, video iPod, or Creative Zen Vision.

Case and point: Google Video and YouTube. Neither of these websites
allow you to download the video files, much less provide RSS 2.0 feeds
with enclosures. This type of lock-down is soooo Web 1.0.

I decided to give Greasemonkey a shot and created a couple scripts to
expose download links on Google Video and YouTube webpages. You can
download the scripts here:

< http://www.joshkinberg.com/blog/files/youtube_to_me.user.js >

To install these scripts you will need the Greasemonkey extension  for Firefox:
< http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org >

After installing Greasemonkey, relaunch Firefox, then right-click the
links above and select "Install User Script", or go to the links above
and select "Install User Script" from the Tools menu. Now whenever you
browse to a Google Video or YouTube webpage, you will see a prominent
download link at the top.

Enjoy!
