The answer is.......

no

Why? Because YouTube encodes their videos in flash. There are, however, decoders out there that decode the .flv flash video into whatever you want.

It's a bit tricky, as you hafta figure out the .flv url to download so that it doesn't stream through the seperate flash video player.

It took me about 3 hours and two different programs before I found one that worked.. just to rip the audio out of a YouTube thing. And then the program that worked had only a 15 day trial.

You should try this page.
You can also downlaod videos from other pages.
When you dwn the file, change it to .flv .
You also need Cinema Forge to convert it from .flv to .wmv

As you see, it's not that difficult after all. :)
