I just need some sort of programs that can download flv from website like youtube and other.


Video Download Helper is the best.

    This has worked best for me too. They just need to make a Chrome extension now and I'm set. :) – boehj May 14 '11 at 2:46

    I'm waiting for the Chrome extension too. Video Download Helper is really the best one out there. – Vicky Chijwani May 14 '11 at 8:50

There is also youtube-dl. It's a command-line tool. The best feature of this tool is that it can accept a batch file as input. Besides this, it has many other features.

Be sure to install the latest stable version, not the one in the Software Center. Link: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/youtube-dl_2011.08.04-1_all.deb

Sample working:

youtube-dl -ica http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1VezJENet8 -o "%(title)s.%(ext)s"
