It'd be very helpful if there's a option to download 240p flv. Sometimes 240p is available but can't be downloaded with this addon. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'd been using "Flash Video Downloader" to DL YouTube vids for a year or so, but it stopped working, even after making sure it was current. I tried many times, all their various extensions, but each DL was *empty*.

Uninstalled, then installed this addon, is actually DL'ing a YouTube vid - properly! - as I'm writing this review. And it's not as complicated as "Flash Video Downloader" either. Thank you!

This is best youtube download, support the chrome too

The Button is directly UNDER the Video! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

RESULT:
Worked immediately and correctly from the moment I installed it on 24 SEPT 2012.

TESTED WITH:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7P-Psa8r8U

PLATFORM:
XPSP2 / FF 10.0.2. Javascript "enabled" in browser, but Java not installed on my computer.

COMMENTS:
Don't look for fancy knobs or gears -- just a simple DOWNLOAD button below the video. It contains one dropdown that offers a choice of formats.

CONCLUSION:
Like the very best software, this tries to do exactly one thing and does it well. No beg-windows, no "see my other stuff" promos, no useless bonus options. Just a clean, simple, functional addon. I only hope the author will continue to update this excellent FF extension.

Note: Negative reviews are important. Intelligent ones can help the authors to improve their work. But misleading 1-star reviews from ignorant or impatient users can easily drag down the ratings of even the best tool. If you can't figure THIS addon out, you should probably deinstall the computer and install a plain TV.

Where is the button? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There is no button. Nothing. Even after an extensive search there was no way i could use this. Deinstalled right afterwards.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.7). 

The button should be below the video player, like you can see in the screenshots. If you're using the latest version and it doesn't show up, then it's likely that YouTube tests a new version of the interface and that breaks the extension. I don't have access to this interface so I can't fix the extension without your help. Send an email to deadline.support@gmail.com and attach a text file with the source code of the video page (not the homepage). Thanks.

UPDATE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Needs a new update (2012-08-16)

PLEASE UPDATE Rated 1 out of 5 stars

no downloader add on is working now..please update..the only way to download now is using internet download manager to download hd mp4 & sd flv but no sd mp4 wch is wht i need desperately :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.4). 

It's probably an YouTube experiment you can disable by clearing the cookies for youtube.com. I've just tested both the extension and the Greasemonkey script in Firefox and other browsers: it still works for me.
<br>You can help me update the extension to make it work in this experimental interface by opening youtube.com in a tab, pressing Ctrl+Shift+K (or Firefox menu > Web Developer > Web Console), typing document.cookie in the console and pressing Enter. Copy the result and paste it in an email to deadline.support@gmail.com. You should do that before clearing the cookies. This helps me test the new interface. Thanks.

resolution problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

how do i get the required resolution. my phone supports videos with 320x240 reso. so do i have to convert them after downloading or is there any other way ??

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.4). 

YouTube doesn't offer this resolution and the script only offers the video formats provided by YouTube. You can use a video editor to resize the video.

Not working? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really love this add-on, it's my all time favorite. For some reason though recently, it won't let me download anything? This started happening on August 3rd, 2012. Can anyone help? I really love this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.3). 

Please install the latest version of the extension (1.4.4) from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-youtube/versions/ . Hopefully this fixes the bugs. If there are still issues, clear the cookies for youtube.com and the browser's cache.

Recommended Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yep, this is the best YouTube video downloader. Got tired of popup with "Easy YT dler" and their claims that server space is needed so I should pay, and tested 3 other versions, the ones that work add annoying buttons and are not easy to use. This one is very straightforward. Exactly what I wanted.

Great tool for an easy download of videos on Youtube.
Only thing that I'd wish for this add-on is the possibility to directly download only the audio track of a video as an mp3.

Further to 'OK, but...' Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't understand your failure to understand my complaint. Your add-on promised a 360kbps download but I got one at roughly double that bitrate. I didn't play the video in the Youtube player at all. And Get Info on my computer confirmed the file size as 120MB approx.

The one-star rating is for your reply to my original review.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.8).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

360p is not a bitrate and doesn't mean 360 kbps. 360 is just the number of vertical pixels, the resolution of the video.

1080p = 1920 x 1080
720p = 1280 x 720

Please read the extension's description and you'll find all the resolutions, includng 360p. The most common resolutions for 360p are 480x270 and 480x360. And don't tell me that's a misleading name because it's the name used by YouTube (try clicking the setting icon from the player).

WEBM? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice and simple but currently lacking the ability to download the HTML5 WEBM higher quality videos. Free Download Manager + the FlashGot Firefox Addon let's me do so in the time being.

The largest resolution this addon is letting me see to download is the FLV 480p (44 MB in this case), yet with the method I mentioned above, I can also see a WEBM 640x480 (59 MB).

Please add to the script so it can download these larger files too.

Thanks!

Absolutely Amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simplest down-loader I've ever used. "One click results" ... exactly as described! Brilliant H-D video quality and much faster downloads than 'YouTube Downloader' without all the hassles and wasted time spent waiting for it to convert to compatible MP4 format or pasting extension files. This one deserves "10" stars ... for speed and excellence! ;-)
