Saving and Playing YouTube and other Flash Media

You need to get the DownloadHelper plugin for Firefox to allow you to save the *.flv files from YouTube so that you can play them in your own media player.

Most media players do not support playing .flv files and you need specific codecs. There is ffdshow which is a set of Flash codecs but much easier to set-up and better to use is GOM player.
