This video contains content from VEVO. It is restricted from playback on certain sites. Watch on YouTube. is a common message on DDG searches you may come across.

SaveFrom.net offers a painless, simple download of such videos, but it's two more clicks compared to the feature had been implemented in DDG itself. I wonder what the legal implications would be for you. Of course you have to align yourself more with the legal stuff, than a site like SaveFrom.net.
