YouTube videos

As we all know there's some fantastic stuff on YouTube that is impossible to find elsewhere. Sometimes I find I can download it - Mac, RealPlayer Downloader - and sometimes not. Inevitably, the ones I can't download are the ones I really want!

Anyone know how this works - i.e. what is enabling me to download some but not others?

there are a few bits of software that claim to be able to download videos from Youtube, I don't know which one is best, but I read this on one of the websites I just googled - "from time to time YouTube changes their video files hosting routine. So our YouTube download programs stop working. We work hard and usually fix such problems within a day or so" - so I guess it's a matter of keep trying.
I'm told JDownloader works well - http://jdownloader.org/

Thanks to you both. jdownloader seems to work fine but no luck with keepvid. As you say, it may be my location.

Thanks again.
