Downloading video from YouTube or similar sites?

Is there a way to download videos from YouTube or similar sites? I would like to share a video with folks at work via a jump drive as such sites are blocked on our Company PC's. TIA.

It Worked!

Yea! A big thanks for this tip. It worked just as suggested. I was given another site to try, Vixy, but could not make it work at all. This was easy. I have bookmarked the site for future use. I sure appreciate this tip!
