Are you looking for free ones only?

Any. But let's speak truthfully, you can always download them for free from a p2p network anyway.

I just posted a list of lecture videos (mainly courses and tutorials) on the blog https://www.physicsforums.com/blog/2005/07/09/physics-videos/ .
(I haven't included more-technical seminar and conference videos.)

honestly i don't think that you can find everything in a peer to peer softwares.
for example, the series: "the mechanical universe", unless you have found the series in these softwares (i havent).

You were not honest enough,

However, you will need a program like fraps to rip the media files. Time consuming especially if your computer cannot handle the process. Ask the guys downstairs for more info.

yes, I've seen this site already, as you mention, requires ripping softwares, but i do prefer to download from other peer than ripping it by myself (perhaps a sense of less corrupted (-: ).

Actually you can download the streams, so in fact it does not require a fraps-like software. Eg. StreamBoxVCR Suite should do the job (that is only one of many).
