    @Cornelius has already given a good answer but we still would like to have a good question; to enhance your question please at least answer these questions in your question: what browser(s) do you need/want it to support? do you care about pricing? and do you care about open-source or not?

You can use Orbit Downloader.

  • freeware
  • download videos from nay other sites
  • supports many web browsers
  • lightweight

How to download:

  • first run Grab++ from Tools menu
  • start playing Silverlight videos
  • select detected videos in Grab++ and start downloading

Here is a screenshot from its webpage:

  • Quoting another user who did not have enough rep to comment: Do not use Orbital Downloader. Read Orbital Decay: the dark side of a popular file downloading tool about OD being an effective tool for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Several download sites have removed it form their collections. As a new user I cannot comment, so I must include this as an answer. See welivesecurity and other sites available via a google search. O
