Download YouTube or Similar using Copy Paste

We watch videos on YouTube, Google videos, and all those FLV powered video sharing portals. We all want to download it and save it for our later pleasure. Ofcourse, lots of desktop applications and command line utilities are available. But if we are on Linux we can have youtube videos with simple copy paste.

The video that you are currently viewing is on /tmp/Flashfoo (the foo can be any random string. After the video is completely buffered, we just have to copy the file to our local disk for persistent storage. That is it.

We can watch as many you want and copy them too. Each of the Flash* files have a unique random character string.
