35 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 6.2.0a4 734.3 KiB Works with Firefox 36.0 - 49.0

Previous version, 6.2.0a3, was supposed to fix an issue related to audio from HLS captures not playing on Windows Media Player. It did in some cases but broke whole HLS videos in many situations.

This 6.2.0a4 version should definitely solve those problems.

Version 6.2.0a3 733.7 KiB Works with Firefox 36.0 - 49.0

Version 6.2.0a3 should fix an issue related to audio from HLS captures not playing on Windows Media Player.

Please report success or failure in the support forum.

Version 6.2.0a2 733.6 KiB Works with Firefox 36.0 - 49.0

Version 6.2.0a2 includes support for downloading encrypted HLS videos

Version 6.2.0a1 771.7 KiB Works with Firefox 36.0 - 49.0

A number of YouTube videos are streamed using not only ADP (video and audio on different streams), but each stream being only available using the DASH protocol: not a single URL to an audio or video file, but instead a number of chunks that need to be downloaded and reworked to produce a single file. As a result, those videos were not even displayed in the Video DownloadHelper interface. Version 6.2.0a1 solves this case.
Russian locale (87% complete) has been added.

Version 6.1.1a4 718.0 KiB Works with Firefox 36.0 - 49.0

This version fixes a bug where when on a Mac or Linux, ffmpeg is used instead of libav, the add-on mis-detects the converter to not supporting the VP9. As a result, some YouTube are not detected while they are available.
