There are various freebies about for this purpose but be aware that it is hard to find one without unwanted goodies or malware. I use YouTube Downloader but have to remove things afterwards. One I haven't tried that might be safer is an add-on to Firefox - supposed to be safe. You would obviously have to have that browser though, if only for YouTube downloads.

This online one ought to be safe but I've never tried:

EDIT:
Google finds plenty more, use search string "online youtube downloader".
Although many folk do this I'm not entirely sure about the legalities so must leave that aspect for you to check out.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

When the video is playing in Youtube,
on the address bar you will see the address to that video,
Eg - "www.youtube.com/watch?v=k94wBXe..."
Add "ss" after "www." , before to "youtube.com/watch?v=k94wBXe..."
Then it will looks - "www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=k94wBXe..."
Press Enter Key
A page will open with a download link to video

Aha Leonard - I was trying to remember that fiddle. It is the same online downloader as given in #1, although folk might find that ss facility more convenient.
