Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hopefully the dev will see this, if he didn't notice it already. For me, as of a couple of days, I'm having issues with youtube giving me the different options for the quality that I'd like to download. Before, based on which formats I had enabled/disabled, I'd virtually always see 480p and 360p download options (among others, unless I disabled it). Lately, regardless of the video I'm trying to download from youtube, the only choices for formats I'm getting are 720p and Medium, including on videos that I know I've downloaded in 480p format previously. Additionally, the HQ5 format keeps showing up as an option even though I have disabled it multiple times.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).

As of Jan 18, the youtube issues have been resolved, at least for me. Everything appears to be running normally again.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
Confirmed issue with youtube Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Confirmed, as the two previous reviewers Dan and Kevin stated, some downloads (in particular youtube downloads) are "broken." While the files do download, the status is unknown because they do not appear in the download window (nor do they appear for me as they should using the extension "Download Statusbar"). As Dan pointed out, youtube downloads do work as they should using the extension "Download Flash and Video." Hopefully we'll only have to use a different extension temporarily until the dev can release an update with a workaround.I am experiencing this issue on Firefox Beta 19 and Firefox 18. What's strange, however, is that I did not have this problem when using Firefox Beta 18, even up until the official Firefox 18 was released. I have had some issues with userscripts breaking on youtube over the past couple days, so this may not even be an issue with Firefox/Video DownloadHelper, but rather with a change that youtube made (which seems to happen far too often).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).
