I am not 100% certain that I properly understand your challenge, but I *think* that you're trying to download and save local copies of say Youtube videos to your local machine. If that's the case, you can try this:-

Launch Firefox and go to the Firefox Add-Ons web site. You will find several plug-ins that let you access YouTube videos directly. Here are 2 good examples:- ... src=search ... src=search

You can install either [or both] of those in Firefox and they will give you local access to the files...

Hope that helps.
