A quick, fast answer would require knowledge of the YouTube API.

The Youtube videos themselves are just flash media, so if you can find the direct link to that then you can pull the data into a file.

I followed steps somewhere after googling for something (interesting, the spell check knew what "googling" was) how to find the SWF file by just using Safari.

The YouTube API doesn't allow for downloading the videos in their regular format. I believe it will give you the link to the mobile (3pg) version, but not the .flv or .mp4 versions. To get a download link for those, you need to do a bit of page scraping. (looking for things in the html source code of the page)

I could write a tutorial for making one in PHP if you would still like one. (assuming I can find some time)
