Videos from youtube can be downloaded by various means.
But some of the videos belong to a particular channel which cannot be downloaded by any youtube download softwares that i tried.
Eg: The videos 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugiANaZQSkI&feature=watch-now-button&wide=1' or 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkNc2rlLSgk&feature=watch-now-button&wide=1' belong to youtube channels and cannot be downloaded by many of the video download softwares like internet download manager, etc i tried. They only seem to download a .htm file and nothing more. Please let me know if there are any softwares that help in doing this.

Sometimes I have to set my browser to display the raw html code so I can see what the real URL is for the video. Then, I can download from that URL directly to an FLV file. That I can either play with a suitable video player such as VLC, or I can convert it to another more usable format (mpg2, etc) using a video transcoder such as ffmpeg.

Well using the extracted URL http://youtu.be/ugiANaZQSkI I was able to get this to play in Chrome on my Linux (RHEL 6) system. I can't find the actual file URL to download however, so it may be protected. I'll repost if I find a way to access it.

The video seems too long. Maybe your youtube downloader is unable to handle such a big movie.

sorry i cant follow all the pages changing so fast ,gave up trying ,but i did get the gist of it, watch the video so that it gets saved to temp file and then make changes to its extension and walla you got the video ,or something like that

yep! exactly that
Browsers store videos in a cache folder, thats why when you play the video 2nd time it doesn't buffer. I have given the locations to the cache folder for different browsers in that notepad. Just pasting it in Run box will take you to it and you can just copy paste the video that is stored. This has 2 advantages. One is you save lots of time because you don't need to use a software to redownload it and second is if your using a limited internet connection with charges on data transfer then you save a lot of MB!

Install Internet Download Manager (IDM) v6.07.15. Integrate it into your favorite browser and you are done. Just play any online video and IDM will suggest to download that video by blinking 'Download this video" icon on top of that video.
