Used to Be Good Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be a good useful extension. Now it does not work. This will not longer extract audio. The developer tells you to install and config ffmpeg, but does not give any instruction on how to configure this Unix program. They even leave a note it the preference not to leave this kind of note as a review. Well if you don't like my feedback, don't mess up an extension that worked perfectly before.

Trusty companion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as intended, sane options. One thing I wish for is that it would allow me to configure the 'quick download' button function (ie pick what I mostly download, in my case "256K AAC-audio only, converted to MP3"). Then it would really be 'quick download' button for me.

Was 5 stars before. Now 1 star Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I was using the older version without problems. but i have new computer and with that, the new version of this plugin. Which sucks donkey balls. It doesn't extract audio anymore, and only downloads the whole video. I tried to install the other program that it requires, which requires me to download another program, which requires another, and so on... Even then, the audio extracting feature doesn't work LOL. I don't know why the developers had to change this as it was working fine before.

Not perfect Rated 3 out of 5 stars

First of all: I have to say that from all the youtube downloader addons this one I like the most. User interface is simple and eye pleasing and I love the fact that you can add an automatic destination folder for downloads so there is less unnecessary clickin with every download.

But. And there is a BIG but! If I pause my download, for some reason with this addon it doesn't know how to resume the download. Instead it always starts again from the beginning. Just tested with an another youtube downloader and I didn't have the same problem with it. Hopefully this gets fixed asap.

Perfect!

Thank god - something that works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Recently Youtube has gone into a mess with all these algorithm changes etc. After trying all of the extensions, I can confirm this is the only one that will download every video format properly.

Remux huh? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am editing my review: I had really messed up the settings areas of the two apps that work together. Im not sure exactly how this is supposed to work but I prefer the m4a files that im getting now. They sound better then the mp3s that were converted to. Im Impressed by the ease at which this works when its going. Im interested in what resolution the files are to begin with because ive been told that you tube streams at 128. Am I downloading 4 times as much data as Im getting sound quality for? Or does the add-on actually pull down a higher resolution audio only stream. At any rate -- this works a ton better than jacking one computer into the other to gather some funny audio samples for my shows. Work flow is extremely fast. Maybe Its not for horders. Its a utility, treat it as such i guess.

If you guys can clean up the preferances pane a little so novices dont screw up there situation and basically break the add-on ... it might get a ton of five star ratings. But also it might cause trouble from people downloading tons of content. A trade off.

previously:
The application works as it should but almost a little too well. I was extracting audio from Youtube videos and they were landing in a custom folder. I noticed that they were being converted to mp3 instead of remaining as the m4a that i was clicking to download. This has to do with the included conversion tool i guess. But upon compare/listening to the audio against the audio i was listening to in you tube i was unhappy with the converted mp3 files. So I tried to work without the conversion tool and just basically screwed up how the whole thing was working. Is there a way to keep the M4a files ? without converting them to mp3? I definately consider the you tube player sound to be superior to the mp3 after the conversion .

Best compatibility and functionality Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You can download any stream YT offers and it automatically remuxes it together with the best audio stream. Perfect.
Best way to download VP9 and Opus streams from YT in Firefox.

the best youtube plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The plugin it fairly easy to download youtube content. Of course, for the best experience you must have ffmpeg installed, since a lot of re/demuxing work is done via it and it allows to keep the plugin's size small. I use a custom-built ffmpeg and I haven't had any compatibility problems.
To the developers: thanks for the great plugin and timely updates, and keep up the good work!

Terriblement déçue Rated 3 out of 5 stars

J'adorais ce module jusqu'au soir fatal où je m'aperçus que l'audio des vidéos que je lui avais fait enregistrer n'était nulle part, seules les vidéos entières. Il est maintenant obligatoire d'installer un autre module, Media Converter and Muxer, ce que je trouve d'autant plus désagréable qu'il ne semble pas fonctionner, du moins avec cette version-ci de Firefox.

Ils sont légion, les modules pour Firefox qui permettent à l'internaute de télécharger des vidéos dans d'innombrables formats. À bon entendeur, salut.

No me permite descargar solo audio Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hasta hace una seman lo he utilizado y perfecto. Hoy he vuelto a intentarlo pero me dice que para extraer el audio tengo que instalarme FFmpeg. Lo he intentado pero no sé cómo hacerlo en mi Imac. Parece que en windows es mas fácil pero en Mac no lo consigo así que buscaré otra solución y prescindiré de este complemento

¡El mejor programa para descargar videos en YouTube! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Es en serio, te permite descargar en los formatos originales, tb. puedes seleccionar descargar solo el audio o solo el video (sin audio), como tb. descargar los formatos que tienen el video y audio separado (si se descarga el archivo ConvertHelper).

No 1080p download on a 1080p video Rated 3 out of 5 stars

1080p doesn't always work, even if the video is in 1080p... Any ideas ?

It works in 1080p Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It downloads in 1080p and automatically downloads the seperate audio that youtube forces them to do.

Great service. Thanks.

Best, simply the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No other add on that I downloaded (tried two of the top ones) offers all the options this one does. Audio and Video can both be downloaded individually in several formats which was simply not an option in the other two add ons that I tried.

Good range of download options but audio extraction not always working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use this addon more than Video DownloadHelper (which seems harder to use these day) but I use InternetDownloadManager more. I like the audio extraction (or is it conversion?) feature but it doesn't always work. A strange bug is that when using the OGG extract feature a "DASH" .WEBM file is downloaded but disppears from the harddrive upon download completion.

WTF?!? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What happened here?
I have been using this add-on since December 2014 - actually longer than that, my collection goes back to March 2013 - but 2014 is when I authorized ffmpeg support to split files into video/audio...
The last video I downloaded with this add-on was on 09/10/2015 and it split it as I expected. TODAY, less than a month later, I'm told I need 'Muxer/Mixer/Whateverthefuck' add-on, AND some sort of downloader tool, to do what 'YouTube Video and Audio Downloader' used to do...

I run a Linux system (M$ can kiss my A$$!) so I already have ffmpeg installed and configured. If I have to install (and configure) a half-dozen more add-ons to do the job of ONE (previous) add-on, guess what. YOU'RE GONE!!!
