ClipGrab is another method of the ‘app’ variety. It allows you to download videos from popular sites like YouTube to your hard-drive but adds in in the ability to convert them to popular media formats, including audio only, as well; no need for separate tools.
What makes the tool particularly attractive against competing methods is the look of the application – clean and easy to understand – and the cross-platform factor. If you use OS X or Windows alongside Ubuntu and want to maintain a degree of familiarity in applications between them then ClibGrab is worth considering.
