+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!
