Download movies from YouTube and other streaming media websites

Did you ever came across movies / films on YouTube, Google Video, MySpace or Break that you wanted to store on your local machine? You can have several reasons for this; Being afraid that the movie / film will get deleted by the host or user, placing the file on your iPhone or an other mobile video player and so on. Of course you can dig through the source code finding the source files, but that's a lot of time-consuming work. Here's a list of services that'll allow you to download any streaming video file from popular websites.
