You might look at:
which will download video from youtube. Then you can watch it with
mplayer, vlc or whatever. YMMV etc. etc.
It's in Python and requires Python 2.6, 2.7 or 3.2+ so you might check
with your Ubuntu distro to see if you have one of those.
As I'm on dialup, I don't do net video at home and I don't want to sit
around at the library with head phones to watch something so I've been
using youtube-dl (and its simplifying helper script, ythelper.sh).
Has worked fine on my Slackware 14.1 distro with Python 2.7.
