+1 for youtube-dl. I just grab whatever I want, and watch it later
with a proper player.
I'm tending -- these days -- to just sample a video in the browser to be
sure that it might actually be something I want to watch, and then use
youtube-dl to get the ones that look promising. But -- with all of the
heavy CPU use and high temperatures I see with the gnash plugin in
Iceweasel -- I'm about to revert to using youtube-dl alone.
In that case I might almost be as well off using links2. Dang, that's a
nice piece of software!
