HOWTO: Download Blip.tv content for offline viewing

I tried the bookmarklet and it worked as advertised but it linked to a web site which displayed ads. I thought “Hey, if all it’s doing is finding the link, why can’t I do that myself?” So went back to Blip.tv, viewed the source and looked for the link(s) to the video file and entered the link alone in the address bar. This started dispaying the video and only the video in Chromium and I could then right-click on the video and use the “Download” link to save the video file locally.
If anyone has suggestions as to how this might be done better I’m happy to receive comments. I’m just happy that I can download the videos.
