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

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

Saket, I have used Video Download helper on sites other than youtube. – drinxy Apr 6 at 10:27

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

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.
