I had the same issue and this website did the trick:
(left side of the screen, big blue button "Click to Download")
It only allows the download of one video at the time, but for me it is what I need.
Hope this helps,

I can confirm the free-youtubedownloader site worked, I just tried it with Safari. Seems like a decent substitute for KeepVid.
Note: I didn't download the desktop app or anything, just put the link in the box and hit "Click to Download"

I had the same problem. The solution that worked for me is:
- Go to System Preferences
- Click on Security & Privacy
- Then where it says "Allow applications to be downloaded from:" choose Anywhere.
That solved it for me. Hopefully it helps.
You can learn more about Gatekeeper here, it has a picture of the screen you will see too:

The newly discovered zero-day flaw in Java 7 is so serious that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned users to disable or uninstall it, and Apple has disabled the Java 7 plugin on Macs through its OS X anti-malware system, in order to protect users from a potentially serious security issue.

@Klaus1 -- That is an interesting development with Java, but not really part of the problem being discussed here. Oracle has a patch for this now by the way, and all users should update to Java 7 Update 11 using the Java Control Panel.

None of the other suggestions worked but this was perfect - thanks!
Even the System Prefs > Java control panel thought it was up to date but the Java site knew better. Downloaded, installed and it all works.
