this was the last dependable youtube vid downloader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

since the last update downloading youtube vids is pot luck at best.
sometimes yes, sometimes no, and always slow to start. sometimes 3+ minutes if at all. 5 stars because its been a great extension and i hope i can have better luck with it again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.16). 

Thanks for your review. The latest update doesn't change anything about downloading videos except for the saving dialog. It's hard to tell what's wrong, so please send this bug reporting info: http://userscripts.org/topics/120920

The downloading URLs are obtained from YouTube and this extension only makes them more visible. You're downloading the files from YouTube's servers.
