It's not strictly illegal, it's a violation of the YouTube Terms and Conditionss, some material that is on the site may be subject to copyright law but not everything on there is...

I'm not going to talk about any software for downloading / ripping videos from YouTube but if you are trying to convert between formats then Super is great for converting:
SUPER &copy

Not true, you need written consent to download videos from youtube them selves.Although the uploader (the person who created/got the video still owns the copy right, Youtube automatically get right to use your video. However, they will do until you remove it. Therefore, you need the uploaders, and Youtubes permision (in writing) to use the video.

YouTube Terms of Service Summary at WikiSummaries, free book summaries
There are differences in law and terms of service/terms and conditions. For example if we were to say Terms of Service/Terms and Conditions are to be followed by the rule we would not allow discussion on a lot of subjects including jailbreaking iPhones, how to use routers on ISPs that do not support them and state in T&Cs not to use them etc...

While there may be material on YouTube subject to copyright and some material that is owned by large production companies etc, downloading a YouTube video is essentially no different to watching it as when you watch it, it is downloaded to your computer anyway - okay so it doesn't tell you where to or let you know it's doing this, but it does.

Try Keepvid.com it allows you to download them in a couple of different formats.
