IMHO, for simple URL based batch downloads from Vimeo, YouTube, and similar sites. Houlo video downloader worked best for me.

veoh clinet now has been changed to veoh web player, it can save most veoh videos which have "download" icon. But I don't need it since I use this desktop program to record veoh videos It can download and convert veoh videos to your computer.
Averil3 years ago This page is an error thus not available now. now is recommending users to use its web player to download original videos from it. But it is not able to save videos as specified video format and there are some requirements to use this player. Actually online video recorder is able to record veoh video on computer screen or download as videos file. Besides it has video converter to export videos to iPhone, iPod, PSP, etc.

Try out the NetVideoHunter Firefox add-on to download videos from almost any site! It's working well for me:

 wow!!! ACE!!!
for firefox users, the such downloader add-on like netvideohunter could be nice. for others, there's also so-called "Veoh Downloader" for a try:

certainly this dummies guide is great for most common users. :-)

Please give me feed-back on how helpful this Instructable is, thank you.
This doesn't really provide much info that the Veoh usage instructions don't already provide. Your title implies that you are offering instructions on bypassing the Veoh client, or maybe nabbing the downloaded videos so that they are out of the control of the client and cannot be deleted by the service at will.
What we want is to download the videos from veoh with using their clinet s/w. Even we were not able to copy from temp directory as it creates with .jsp extn.
uh. but when you delete the vieoh client all those videos are deleted with it so there realy is no point in downloading their client. it sucks. so. I'll just stick with watching videos on theyr site.
