I've found that those helper apps (like the "DownloadThemAll" firefox 
extension) do not always work with all of the flash video sites out 
there. I dunno exactly why though my guess is that they fail when 
javascript comes into play.

And don't forget that videos are only a litte part of the flash based 
sites, there games and online applications that depend on flash.

And who in this world wants to have his terabyte hard disk full of cute -
meow- cats? ;-)

3) Flash is evil ;)

Let me be a bit more picky here. Flash is evil because Adobe made it so. 
Adobe's Flash Player, completely open, properly done, developed and 
programmed could have its use.
