- von Firefox-Benutzer 15808460, vor 5 MonatenBewertet mit 1 von 5 SternenVersion 1.1.2 doesn't work for me on any video, with or without music. Displays "Unable to retrieve video metadata." Version 0.9.4 also doesn't work for me.
Having trouble with another Firefox extension named VideoDownloadHelper also.
Both of these quit working last week after installing the latest Windows10 updates.

- von zwei7, vor 6 MonatenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenWhen downgrading to version 0.94 (the one that actually still works) remember to:
1. remove version 1.0.9 found in Firefox extensions:
type "about:addons" in the top address/search bar
2. download the old version 0.94
3. disable automatic updates
Otherwise Firefox will "upgrade" it to 1.0.9 and this extension will stop working!
The 0.94 version sorta sucks since you cannot rename the files prior to downloading, only after so you mus wait if it is a huge video file.

Just posting review to signal boost why it stopped working:
Apparently 10-23-2020, the RIAA filed a DMCA takedown against the code repositories, used by extensions like this, to download YT videos. Cause "piracy". I too thought it was the Firefox update, but no. It's been said that v0.9.4 still works, and it seems to, but not for anything with "music".
A few days ago I saved a couple videos with "music", but now, those types of videos are blocked, with a new "cannot resolve signature" error. Even indie YT music NOT licensed by a big label seems affected.
Videos without "music" seem to work though. Note that v0.9.4 links are a little more confusing. If you want the 60fps vids, I'm pretty sure they're available, but not labeled. You'll see two of the same labels (like two 720p links), but one will have a larger file size - that should be the 60fps one.
Here's more info:
