use a free program called youtube downloader, this allows you to download the clips to flv then open up flv files and convert them to a suitable video file. i do this and convert to wmv no problem. to find it type in "youtube downloader" in google and well pick from the results i suppose!

Or you could use a converter to convert the files to .mov or something. Best converter i have found is esuper, though the download link can be fairly tricky to find.

I downloaded this yesterday and found that this too would not play the file.

I am coming closer to the conclusion that the file is fudged like Geoff said.

The only problem i have at the moment though is how long does it ususally take?
I have sat here waiting around 5 -10 minutes and still have a spinning cog with Connecting to server... Is this also downloading the vid as well as connecting or is it just not working?
I have tried with both firefox and safari and so far nothing.
PS This is the URL i have been given
I don't know if it works or not as it is blocked and i haven't checked it at home.

Were you aware that downloading films from YouTube is against their Ts&Cs?

Wimpy FLV Player
Neat little player, standalone EXE so no installation required.
