This is probably Flash's fault [an infuriating technology] but... it doesn't work on most smaller sites, and since i never use the big sites listed as compatible, it's useless to me.
By the way: on FF30 it installed fine but is totally invisible- doesn't appear on address bar, nor in mouse menu, nor on main menu.
This worked fine for me - However, for some reason to get it to work I had to restart my mac - and notice you have to start playing the file in question first and then u can pause it or whatever - but only then can u download it - without restarting however it would download the file wrong in like kilobytes instead of the actual file .. i believe that I also got ANT video downloader to work using this method (install ad on, restart firefox, restart mac computer) and then... if the link does not appear try reopening the link again or closing firefox completely opening the link again or if it is youtube then in youtube itself instead of the page it is embedded in! thanks a million! this helped me out a lot and was very very stable and fully working. Thanks.
Where is the language interface for Traditional Chinese (zh-TW)?
THE ADDON OVERWRITES EXISTING FILES IF "Start downloading immediately" IS SELECTED, and another file with the same name exists in the target directory!
This is a MAJOR bug and caused me to lose a ton of videos as they were overwritten without me knowing. No software should ever destroy data without informing the user.
Needs a prompt so the user can choose to overwrite/rename/cancel, or simply append the filename with a digit.
Works flawlessly on most sites, very simple and lightweight.
Unfortunately, on some sites, the addon only detects flash video if the tab is active-- if I open a few tabs in the background then switch to them after the videos have started buffering, the downloader does not detect the video.
Not sure what causes this behavior to happen on some sites and not on others, but it is very annoying as I like to open a bunch of tabs, then download the videos by switching to each tab one after the other.
Also, there needs to be a way to immediately start the download without displaying the "Videos to Download" menu, esp if there is only 1 video.
An excellent add-on and easy to use.
Simple and efficient, small and enabled for different web pages (add Nowness.com, please).
Though very limited on YouTube... for example, I would add 480p's download capacity, among other things on YouTube....
Muy fácil de usar. Funcionó siempre.
it's quite simple and the best video downloader
fanatastic add on!!!! simple and easy to use
please support long title as file name, file list auto expired function like dhelper
just downloaded this, and used it to download a video from FB. works very well in integration with DownThemAll. had just used 'Flash Video Downloader - YouTube Full HD Download' before using this, and it had failed; but this works like a charm! thanks dev!
After last update it doesn't works anymore.
When freshly installed on a Palemoon 24.6.2(64) the icon disappears. It isn't available to customize and it vanishes from the add-ons manager list too. No other installed extension has this problem.
Then if the options are clicked on it creates an invisible window which prevents access to the browser. Only shutting the browser completely off fixes it. I run 122 add-ons and only this one has that problem.
On other computers with nearly cloned setups- but previously installed DFVs- these issues apparently aren't happening. On my main rig I have too many open tabs at the moment to risk checking for the options failure.
Also, I would have written the developers- but the link to the page gave an error.
If the developers respond and/or issue a solution I will gladly delete or raise this review.
Very nice program. Although I would prefer a different method of getting most of my videos simply because it is easier to do and has good quality with less data downloaded (and I trust it), it is restricted to a few sites. This is just what I needed to get those other sites.
and would be greater if there was an option to open the video link with an configurable application (/usr/bin/vlc for me) instead of downloading it. thanks!
I try many ones but this one is best so far ( about 1 year ). It has just very few bugs which one of them 480 and 1080p download dissappeared and there is null button cant be removed ( it caused by firefox 29 I am sure it will fixed when updated this add-on ) instead of add-on button ( but it still work perfect even without flash & video download logo just click null :) )
Endlich ein Download-Manager, der funktioniert!
An awesome plugin. Does what it claims. Downloading YTube videos has never been simpler. And infact this plugin complemented with a download manager, is a perfect simple setup.
Works in many sites and is simple to use. Overall, no complaints so far.
For V1.52, there is no icon as V1.51 on the Add-On Bar.
Since the alst update it stopped downloading videos from YouTube - they aren't shown in drop-down when I activate extension.
If this persists, I'll stop using the extension.
一直用 DownloadHelper，但它对国内视频只能下载到片段。Download Flash and Video 就不存在这问题。
Funktioniert gut, sehr gut! Lässt auch die Wahl der Qualität zu, z.B. bei YouTube-Videos mit verschiedenen Qualitäten.
Bitte weiter so!
