First, use ClipNabber to download the video to your desktop in flv format. Works very well/very reliable.

1) Paste the url;
2) Click on "nab video";
3) RIGHT click on "flv download link";
4) Click "save target as" to save the video to your hard drive.

Once you've saved the video to your hard-drive, use any flv converter software to convert the videos into whatever format you prefer. I use "FLV Converter". It's free; efficient; easy to use. You just need to download and install it in order to start using it.

Hope this helps.
Pretty cool, cheers.
I found another one which converts to .avi

The basic version does what we want. The full version has more, but that's not necessary.
