If you just want to download videos, there are some add-ons for Firefox (maybe for IE too) that can download streamed videos.

If you really want to do that with VB.NET, you can't use any simple DownloadFile method because the videos are streamed. Streamed videos are, however, saved to browser's cache memory. This applies to videos from Yahoo too.

You could try to use Webbrowser control to load videostream to cache, locate the right file from cache and then copy it to somewhere else. It will not be any easy thing to do, but IMO the only way to do it.
