Probably a simple way or i`m thick?

There are a few tools on the web that allow you to save these but you need a codec to view.

I'll ask a few guys at work

Easiest way is to copy the url into this online converter

I did start looking for a freeware program, but cba really as the online converter works fine.

Firefox has add-ons that allow you to save the videos as flash movies - then you need to get a free player to play them back... :)

That's what I use. It's an add-on called VideoDownloader 2.0 which I use. It adds a small icon to the status bar (at the bottom next to where the padlock appears on https pages). When you're on google video, youtube etc etc you can click the icon and up pops a window with a link. Click the link and it saves the file to your computer as a .flv file. Then you need to find an .flv player. Job done.
