    On a standalone computer load Chrome, find a YouTube video you like and download. Then with AVS Converter software convert to Device=Android/ (mp4). Or use the free Handbrake and convert using Legacy settings. Plug in your Droid and drag your favorite converted YouTube videos from your computer to the Droids Video Folder. Unplug USB cable and look in Droid's "Gallery" and play. :^))

    There's a great trick that is to add the letters dl to the url of the video straight on youtube (youtube must be opened on the navigator and not on the app). The dl must go after the www. and before the name youtube (if you have the m. on the url delete it)
    Pressing enter you get redirected to the downloader =)

    Find a site that offers legitimate downloads?

    The reason YT doesn't allow saving for offline viewing is simple - it's in the service's T&C. Unless expressly permitted by the content owner, all YouTube content is supplied for online viewing (streaming) only. Doing otherwise is a breach of the owner's copyright and, like music piracy, not something that AF is willing to condone.
