Converter? Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

I often convert music video files to MP3, but I see no mention of conversion in the drop-down menu. Please help me understand: is the converter built-in or a separate program? There's a button for installing the converter, but nothing happens when it's pressed.

please add a select video quality Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

It seems to work fine with me. The only thing is that it adds an advert onto most of the pages I view with Firefox. Even on Facebook. I did un-install the the adverts stopped. They can get annoying.

Hi. Thank you for your feedback. AVD is not related to advertisement. It could not be the source of the mentioned problem.

just didn't work Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Just didn't work. It announced that it needed a 'media converter' [thanks for that Ant!] and that it'd announce when it had finished installing. It didn't. Stuck there, forced to uninstall. On and off my hard drive in 5 minutes.

Hi. We appreciate your feedback. Indeed, now you have to install a converter together with AVD. The procedure is easy and effortless. Ant.com had to include the converter to provide a greater possibility of download on the majority of sites.

Got a Problem Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Hello. No doubt its amazing video downloader.
But, last week I was downloading a movie from Youtube. The downloading started smoothly. But at the last few seconds, it failed. The video file has not been saved in the Specific folder but it has taken that space of the respective hard drive. Now how to regain that disk space? Please help.

Thank you for feedback

Perfect addon to download clips, BUT ... Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Does the job of downloading clips very well (I don't know about conversion) with Firefox 38.0.5. (downloading without slowing down browsing like Video Download Helper).

BUT i would appreciate to be able to rename the downloaded file before the download occurs (just like in "save as") for classification purposes.

Please provide this ...

Thank you for feedback!

Hi. Many thanks for your feedback and feature suggestion.

Inconsistent Video Format (Webm has no audio) Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

I'd give this a 5/5 if it wasn't for inconsistency with video formats. Sometimes it would download streams and convert to MP4, other times it just downloads webm without audio, even though the video in question does have audio (I notice this with Youtube videos). Makes it worthless as an archive tool unless one wants to download the audio using a separate tool and then remux or convert.

If it weren't for this relatively recent development I'd definitely give 5 stars for their support on a lot of sites (including Youtube, supporting 1080p video and above).

If nothing else, it would be nice if there was an option in the Preferences menu to select formats.

Thank you for the review!

Just great, I couldn't dl videos on some website as it was using multi-parts .flv, all downloaders were failing to download the video
Ant Video Downloader is able to download this type of streaming method,
well done ant.com ! ;-)

Thank you!

Was using it on many sites and works nicely, however - it doesnt work on myspace, could we get a fix for their video player (was updated on 13th May 2015) keep up the good work :)

Thank you for feedback!

Many thanks for feedback. Unfortunately, the very many videos featured on myspace are rtmp protocol videos. AVD supports .flv format and is not suitable for rtmp protocol. At the moment we are not planning to support this format.

Has Ant.com changed since 2011 Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Accessing ant.com was blocked here with my HOSTS file so I tried to find out why...
Back in 2011 ant.com had a bad reputation of curiosity and the Firefox add-on (this one) had been at one time removed (-> http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/05/20/firefox_addon_privacy_invasion/ ), but that was four years ago.

People change in four years, companies as well. So before removing ant.com and www.ant.com from my HOSTS file, before installing this add-on, I'd really like to know if the company has changed ever since. After all everyone can make mistakes. I'm always ready to forgive but I need a valid reason.

Neutral 3 rating.

Downloader is good, video player got troubled Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Hi, AVD team.

I find this add on is simply good, i'm using it now and it's working good. But when i start to use the player, i couldn't play the files with extension .avi rather than mp4 and flash video files. Could you give me solution for this problem and thank you for your attention.

Diese Bewertung wurde für eine vorherige Version des Add-ons ( abgegeben. 

Hi Jangilus! Indeed, AVD has been designed to download files of .flv format. This is why you have the mentioned problem. You can download videos in .flv and then convert them to the desirable video format. In this case you can use third-party video player to play videos. Thank you for your feedback and comment!

Does this plugin do a random command prompt popup? Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

I love this addon, but I did notice that now it does some command prompt batch file type thing when saving a video that it never did in the past. This isn't really a problem except that I have been getting a command prompt popup when not downloading, while trying to play online games (Hardcore games, where death is permanent!) This popup is causing serious problems. I'm not certain this addon is the cause, but it may be.

The command prompt address line is something like 'appdata\roaming\firefox\profiles\something or other\ and ends with ffmpeg.

It also happens occasionally on my laptop which also has this addon installed. Is this program the culprit or should I look elsewhere? I'll be disabling it when not in use to see if it stops.

Not sure how to reply to you, so i'll just have to edit. I suppose I wasn't clear, but the problem is not specific to the game, the problem is that when this command prompt pops up, it minimizes my game/full screen applications.

So, for instance, if I was in the game fighting, probably while Firefox is open in the background, and this popup happens, my game would minimize to the desktop and my character could potentially get killed in battle while this is happening, causing me to lose weeks, or even months of progress.

Like I said, i'm not sure if this program is even the culprit. A command prompt pops up, like a batch file, and runs some commands - only lasts a few seconds. Could be an update of an addon. Not much time to read it, but I noticed it ended in .ffmpeg last time, and begins with appdata\roaming\firefox\profiles\ or so. I figured you might know if your program does anything like this.

This happens on my desktop and laptop. I initially thought it was MySQL doing it, as I began a class on it recently and installed it on my desktop and laptop about 4 months ago, but have sense uninstalled it. The only two addons in common on both computers are AdBlock and Ant video downloader. I have no malware or viruses either.

After more searching into my Firefox profiles folders I believe it must be pointing to an application (.exe) in the C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\random profile number.default folder. ffmpeg.exe

Just wanted to make you aware, in case this is indeed the cause of this popup and see if it's possible to change its behavior. Otherwise i'll keep the addon disabled or uninstalled until needed. Others may be experiencing this issue and not have any idea of the cause.

I keep editing. :) But most of all; regardless of any problems, this is one of the best addons ever! Thanks so much!

FFMPEG convertion


As you've noticed, we introduced this prompt few times ago. It is used for convertion on some site to handle more formats.

I have no idea how this can imfluence. Can you tell some game we could try and test with and without this popup and try identify any possible interaction.
