- by badabing, 2 days agoRated 5 out of 5Great extension. I use it to download tutorials in 720p quality, so I can play them offline - which is much faster for scrubbing timeline than online streamed videos.
I've tried many youtube download extensions and this is the best. I think it's worth donating a few dollars to the plugin author, since it does require work to keep up with code changes on Youtube's side. If I ever need 1080p downloads, I will happily buy the pro version.

Kudos on the developers as ..dealing with YouTube's policies and code is not a wall in the park.

- by Frédéric Jeanbart, 8 days agoRated 4 out of 5It works pretty well. Unfortunately, HD (720p) and more require server processing on the part of the addon's developpers (Youtube having split up sound and video), hence a paid license.
NOTE TO THE AUTHOR(s): a feature allowing to download both files anyways would be nice (without the requirement of server processing on your side): I have tools for merging and converting those files myself locally via an Open Source program.
