    Do you want to download the videos or convert video files into mp3?

    If you want to just download the videos then download Real Player and during installation make sure you tick the box that says "Video Downloader" (or something along those lines). Then, when you go onto Youtube and move your mouse over the video, you should see a little sign in the corner of the video that allows you to download the video.

    This is a perfectly legal and legitimate method.

    Get DownloadHelper plugin for Firefox. Not only does it download them but can also convert into mp3 etc.

    Legally purchase it from an approved vendor (saving myself from more warning points here).

    RealPlayer can do that for you I believe.

    I have various Firefox plugins that I use for downloading and converting flash videos.

    However I second what Michael said - you should really be buying the music from somewhere legit - Amazon often have mp3 tracks for 49p, and sometimes buying the album on CD is cheaper than the MP3 version!

    I have an app that does that on my phone called tubemate if that helps. Not sure about on a computer but I'm sure you could quickly find out the best ones by searching Google
