Here’s an interesting three letter  “pwn” technique that provides for a very easy way to download a YouTube clip that you might want to save.  The trick is to use the pwnyoutube.com site in a shortcut way by navigating to a YouTube video then putting the letters “pwn” in front of the “youtube” part of the url address.

example: http://www.pwnyoutube.com/watch?v=URFHApow_zA
(clicking the above link, then pick either the .FLV or MP4 to  download a 30 second test YouTube clip)
