While this add-on claims to work with FF 4.0 and later its recorder.exe component does not work with Win2K (which FF supported through FF 12.0) - might want to mention that.

Not working ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed this addon along with Download Helper. Download Helper works fine, but this CSHelper did not work at all and when I try to uninstall it in the Control Panel it shows it is uninstalled ,but still shows up on my Firefox toolbar. So, how do I get rid of it?

Very nice. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well considering that this tool, which you created, and by your numerous add-ons record, I must say this, so very many thanks to you! Thank you for all your efforts, mig! - Dave

Works Great. You have to have video download helper first.

Win 7 64
Firefox 10.0.2
DownloadHelper 4.9.8 with conversion to MP4 asked
CSHelper 1.0
VLC 2.0

Works all right with me except in some circumstances : e.g. video stream on www.ktotv.com Home page for which the rendered video images are distorted. Any additional setting to remedy the trouble ? I encourage the developer to further develop this very useful add-on to a final version. Thank you.

Russian translation (about this addon) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Russian translation (about this addon):

Это дополнение содержит библиотеки приложения CamStudio-рекордер (программа для захвата видео с экрана) и кодек XVID. Дополнение предназначено, в первую очередь, для совместного использования с дополнением Video DownloadHelper функции захвата экрана в ОС Windows.
Об этом дополнении.
CSHelper в первую очередь предназначен для обеспечения захвата видео с экрана с помощью дополнения Video DownloadHelper (введен в качестве бета-функции в VDH 4,9), при работе в Windows.
Чтобы включить захвата экрана в Video DownloadHelper: зайдите в Firefox меню "Инструменты / DownloadHelper / Настройки", раздел "Захват", вкладка "Захват кадра", затем "Включить захват кадра".
CSHelper предоставляет модифицированные версии:
- Применение CamStudio рекордера
- Кодек XVID
Изменения в CamStudio, связаны с добавлением аргументов командной строки, так что рекордер может быть использован без его пользовательского интерфейса (GUI). Модификация XVID кодека заключается в скрытии диалога "по умолчанию", когда кодек используется.
CamStudio является приложением с открытым исходным кодом, под лицензией GPL v3. Исходный код приложения можно загрузить с http://www.downloadhelper.net/camstudio-src-for-cshelper-1.0b1.tar.gz
XVID - кодек с открытым исходным кодом по лицензии GPL v2. Исходный код кодека можно скачать с http://www.downloadhelper.net/xvid-src-for-cshelper-1.0b3.tar.gz

it finds the video, it records, but with sooooo many lags!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Once I enabled capture and audio record, CSHelper worked flawlessly even though it's still in beta. After recording, it tells you the length of your recording, the size of the file, and asks whether you want to save it or covert it. Since I can't do this in updated versions of Microsoft movie maker/media encoder, CSHelper really came in handy. Thanks!

Nope Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Didn't work. Nothing - didn't even show up.

Properly configured...nobody home. Win7/32.

It`s a codec + screen recorder Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works well with Video DownloadHelper. Tested by me.
I couldn`t understand where to configure the codec - the settings for screen capture like consecutive b-vops, bitrate, profile & level etc., so i (didn`t look at the source) guess that the devs probably implemented algorithm to tune it according to the capture rectangle size. Or probably it assumes settings that you tuned from recorder (launch recorder) link.

OK Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works fine(default settings), convert/no convert, sound/no sound.STOP in tray, movie in download helper folder, user settings.

No didnt work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Got Download Helper and CS-Helper. Doesn't work.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

terrible quality, not recommended for beginners.


Yes, installing CSHelper alone is pointless.

This add-on only makes sense when associated to Video DownloadHelper. In that case, VDH uses CSHelper in background to capture video: first click = start capture, second click = stop capture: easy to use !
