If you're looking for a free, fast and easy to use video downloader that works independently of your browser, then ClipGrab is an interesting solution.

ClipGrab download and converts videos and supports most major video websites including YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, CollegeHumor, MyVideo, Sevenload, Clipfish, MySpass and Tudou. ClipGrab can convert downloaded videos to MPEG4, WMV, OGG Theora, MP3 and OGG Vorbis or simply store the videos in their original format. However, when I downloaded a video in FLV format from Vimeo, I couldn't select any other formats from the drop-down menu so it may be that conversion doesn't work for all sites

ClipGrab can download videos in HD and to do so, all you have to do is make sure that HD is selected in the Quality drop down menu. What I like is that ClipGrab automatically detects when you paste a link to your clipboard via Growl alerts and can auto download it if you want. In addition, downloads are surprisingly fast compared to many such applications. On the downside, it's not integrated with your browser although as you cut links, you can add as many as you want to the queue.

ClipGrab is a simple and fast free solution for anyone wanting to download and convert videos.
