How I download YouTube video

This is a way I download (currently viewing) Yutube video.

Just run this command in shell while viewing a favorite video:
mv /tmp/Flash* "/home/user/video/youtube/A New Name of Video File"

The above is possible because:
1. Youtube downloads its file in /tmp folder.
2. Usually there is only one Flash... file (currently viewing video file).
3. You can move this file where you want with a new name, even during downloading.
