Try VideoDownloadHelper. This firefox extension works on pretty much every website.

Anyhow, be aware that it might be illegal to download streaming content.

I know this add on,but it downloads only from youtube. I want to download videos from sites like ted.com and wallstreetjournal websites. –  Saket Apr 18 '13 at 11:09
    
ted.com has a download link. –  To Do Aug 8 at 9:45

You can try 4k downloader. It downloads Youtube, Vimeo etc. It's free and open-source.

I usually use Keepvid, which works on FireFox, Chrome and many other browsers. You may search it in Google and use it directly on the web page. Also, there're many keepvid liked applications which may help: http://www.downloadavideo.net/online-downloader/sites-like-keepvid.html

If you prefer online downloader, you can try this one which I think is better than others among those downloaders I have used. With it, you can download streaming videos with no problem at all.
