- by nekavoq, a month agoRated 1 out of 5Short version: They now add a QR Code watermark to your downloads so you'd pay for their software
Used to be the best, now you'll notice some "downloads" are slower, that's because it's actually downloading, then adding a QR Code, frame-by-frame, to your downloaded video, because now they decided that they will add the QR Code as a watermark to get you to pay for their convertor. Don't believe me? Hop on Youtube right now and try it. It used to be a very simple downloader as is, now it's unusable. Unusable unless you pay.

If your Firefox doesn't detect Companion APP
Delete Firefox and install firefox.tar.bz2 archive from official site, this would fix the issue
- by Firefox user 17429926, a month agoRated 5 out of 5I've downloaded dozens of videos using this extension for Firefox on Linux, and it works almost flawlessly. The only glitch is that sometimes the download fails, but if you catch it early enough, you can restart it and it will continue from where it was.
- by Gerrit Addiks, a month agoRated 1 out of 5This extension flat out DOES NOT WORK. It asks you to install an external application, where the "install" button to install said application does absolutely nothing.

First of all installation: It requires a "helper program" to be downloaded and installed to your PC separately.
Then the plugin downloads the video, but spends your CPU cycles to add an annoying QR code for the developer to the downloaded video, adding BOTH delay AND annoyance to the download process.
If I wanted a QR code added to the video that I want to save, then I would ask for it.
Useless and annoying. Don't bother installing this
