Video DownloadHelper

Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

So I have nothing really to say, bad or positive about differences between old and new VDH. It still does what it is supposed to do, and the way it does it doesn't really bother me. Plus it gives us support for ADP videos, but....
About that ADP videos business. I understand that the dual files video/audio issue require some method of aggregating them. But it doesn't really require an re-encoding process that adds a water-mark that sometimes is just so big it is on verge of being retarded. Every single video that was ADP I copied the temporary video and audio files (before the converter did its job and removed them), and just dropped them into MKVToolNix. All that program does is just put them into *.mkv container. Files work flawlessly, have no water-mark, no sync issues, and whats the most important - are not re-encoded in the background to add that said water-mark, so we keep 100% you-tube quality.
So my question is like this: Could you add an option to allow us "advanced" users to just download both video and audio files, and 'mux' them on our own, without the need for installing that converter app and playing with coping temp files? If so I could give VDH even 5 stars, but as it is right now it is worth weak 3 stars at best.

EDIT (after the response):
Yeah it is maybe a way around it. Or it would if it worked in a good way. Have 3 adaptive things at top in first list, every single stuff that is below 720p is switched off. Cant move 4th adaptive thing up - it automatically always drop to the last position. In ADP variants list I have all video-only 720p/1080p and audio-only at top. Then all 720p/1080p and then everything else unchanged as it was after 'order by video quality' (cause you cant switch them off). And yet first position in short list is non ADP, there are 360p or even worse quality options taking at least 1/4 of the whole list positions. First ADP options are audio+video...
It probably is my lack of proper knowledge about how to order those things - at least towards the ADP variants. But why its showing me crap like 144/240/360p non-ADP even I have them all disabled I don't know.
So well now the 3 stars are strong ones ;]. Two things I would like to see then:
Easier to edit, or completely redesigned quality options menu (maybe just a simple list of resolutions, and a separate list of codecs/adp variants etc?), or just added link to some guide how to set them properly?
More info in short list. Like which ADP variant it is - video-only, audio-only or both?, what is the fps, etc, maybe with an options in settings which of those infos to actually show or not.
Both changes are basically a QoL improvements and would push verdict to 4 stars. 5 stars will still require option to let us just grab v+a variants without aggregating by converter, and overall UI klutziness improvements.

Personas Plus

Like it but... Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

I just use it with one persona skin. I barely feel the need to change them - I just use one I like the most for months and its OK. Or at least it was till damn FF updated from 19 to 21 (I checked 20 too) - on both 20 and 21 when I download a file, and downloading pop-up shows (generally something happens with download manager) then personas changes theme/skin to one that I installed like first time when personas were introduced. Now each damn time I download something I need to go to personas icon, change theme to one of last used, and then back to one I'm using and is the only one actually installed. Simply clicking on the one I use doesn't work as its already marked as being used. Well I would need to do all that if I didn't revert back to FF19.

So all in all:
Personas gets a 4/5 - wont get 5th star cuz lots of themes look nice only when you have so much tabs open that they take few lines of space (thus showing more of personas skin image).
Firefox 20/21 gets 1/5 - only 1 star cuz it works, but brakes my immersion, I mean the nice feel of using it - if I'm forced to change skin each time I grab something and download it.
