    Viewing the properties of the clip will generally allow you to see the actuall URL for the clip, you can then download that with your player or download manager. Clips that are stored in URLs beginning with "mms" cannot be downloaded (well, they can, but I believe discussing those methods here would be a TOS violation since it involves breeching security measures) There are also other methods of security used with some formats to prevent saving of the actual clip.

    Internet video rip

    Any or all formats really. My daughter would really like to play some pop videos on her computer most of these appear to be either the Real Player or Quick Time type.
