Default Any way to download videos?

There are abundant video downloaders in Windows but can't find a decent one for Linux. Does it exist?

You can also use a browser extension.
I use Video DownloadHelper in Firefox.

Also Video Downloader Professional for Chromium browsers/Opera.

I'd also recommend XDM to speed up your downloads. It captures videos playing on your web browser and is the best download manager that I found which works well cross-platform Linux & Windows. A linux version of EagleGet is also on it's way.

On Windows and BSD, I use youtube-dl which should also run on Linux. (Ignore the name. It supports enough sites.) AFAIR there are also browser extensions to control it, but I don't really use such.

VLC - just point the output to a file rather than the screen.
