MDC YouTube Downloader allows visitors to download YouTube videos directly from your WordPress site.
Great plugin and a good early version of it.
One issue I had was that the plugin did not always pick up the YouTube files despite them being available.
I did a quick hack and cut down on the failures quite a lot by adding a 6 cycle loop with a 1 sec sleep between loops to prevent flooding YouTube servers.
Ideally being able to check if the video is a VEVO or protected channel is the best way to deal with videos that can not be downloaded but I'm not sure if the return from YouTube allows you to distinguish between downloadable videos and protected videos.
