Strength: • Open source. If you are not familiar with "open source", it means this add-on is more secure. Because its code is publicly available for review and contributions on GitHub at https://github.com/LeonardoCiaccio/GrabAnyMedia • Easy to use • Attractive MIT/X11 License. This means the software code of this add-on is owned and supported by a friendly not-for-profit community. Instead of a for-profit corporation. And more secure because its full code is publicly available for review. • Works on most websites. Able to download a wide range of media types. From a wide range of websites. Including videos, audio, and streaming videos. • Cross-browsers. Available for Firefox, Chromium/Chrome, Opera, Yandex. • Well documented. Including a video and website. • Periodic updates • If it does not find some media files you can use the scanner to potentially find references that are not easy to find. • OpenDB feature. This optional feature makes it easier to find hard to find media. To do so you automatically share public media links with the OpenDB. Media links which search engines do not index.
Challenge: • With Chromium/Chrome you need to manually install the extension. Because Google blocked this extension from their website. Due to Google's Youtube policy. But this is outside the control of the developer and this add-on. Alternatively it is much easier to install this add-on/extension with Firefox.
This is THE single most versatile video/audio downloader browser extension available. It doesn't just grab files from a limited list of well-known supported websites, this one is meant to work universally on any website by intelligently scanning everything.
Mi chiedevo però, esiste un modo per non far apparire il "pulsante blu" con "Analizza - Scarica" che copre i video e li mette in pausa quando ci passi sopra il mouse? Se non esiste suggerisco vivamente di aggiungere la possibilità di nasconderlo, perché francamente disturba troppo, è il motivo per cui l'addon io lo attivo solo quando devo estrarre i video e lo disattivo immediatamente da about:addons appena ho finito, però due maroni tutte le volte accendi e spegni...
I downloaded this after a recommendation it would work for downloading video from facebook.
Spent ages trying to get this to work. Watched the video that the developer posted on youtube explaining how to download from Facebook. Tried the sequence over and over and over. Nothing working I eventually messaged the developer. His response indicates he has no interest. " leonardo_ciaccio Mod • 9 minutes ago Facebook API changed and i don't have time for this tool, have a nice day ..."
My ultimate respect to Mr. Developer. From last one week, I was madly searching for some app/extension to download streaming files of hls and m3u8 type . Thanks to you sir that now I can do that in just a click of my mouse.
Works well with multimedia links, but also prevents my banking site from logging in - I assume that this is an accident, not a deliberate act ... Banking site keep refreshing log in page instead of log into my account. When I turn off add-on everything returns to normal. Please answer what is going on if you can. FF57.0.4, WIN10
