Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You see, Video DownloadHelper is one of my favourite addons. But before that I was operating with this thing. There were some issues, but luckily it was upgraded to VDH and there the bugs were squashed and I believe that some ironing was done.

To give you an example of the inconsistency of this plugin, I shall give specific examples of videos posted on YouTube, thou I will try not to elongate this matter.

For example I have a YT channel called Zomick's Bakery, and there I posted several of my videos:
- Zomick's Bake Shop
- Zomick's Kosher Bakery
- Zomick's Challah Recipe
- The Best Zomick's Bread
- Zomick's
etc.

You see, on some videos this plugin simply worked like wonder. On some it didn't. There are generally no differences between the videos, their settings are the same, I browse them in the same session, in the same browser, in the same time, except for the content of the videos.
On some the description was longer, namely there were specific information for a specific video. For ex. on the video "Zomick's Kosher Bakery", you could read about the location details, how this bakery came to be, what is so special about this bakery, what do people love most etc. But this video was not detected by my plugin
On the other hand the "Zomick's Challah Recipe" had a 1 line description with very few information, because this video was a presentation on it's own. You know, there was a commercial etc.

Now, There is no problem with the current successor, and the videos were re-uploaded. But it was a great plugin anyway.

YouTube Download Rated 1 out of 5 stars

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!!!
My norton internet security blocked a trojan (high) from this add on this is what norton said

network traffic from funkyzx.co.cc/forum.php?tp=15e2c3c0c4b3a4aa matches the signature of a known attack

and i guess this is the website name Laser Imaging & Design Inc.

also when you click on the website it takes to to a different page saying you won so you can click and get a whole bunch of junk downloaded to your computer http://www.fastyoutubedownload.com/ Oh, and I had to give it one star cause I couldn't submit without one.

similar plugin that works - grabstream Rated 5 out of 5 stars

We would approciate if you could support our plugin with your reviews.
The more rewiews we've got the sooner it will be full rewiewed by Mozilla.

Thanks in advance and enjoy using it!

It seems that all the major YouTube download extensions are suddenly having problems, and this one is no exception. I try to download it and it downloads 0 bytes. I'm not the only one having this problem, similar complaints have been cropping up over the past few days on other YouTube download extensions.
The only downloading extension I've tried that has downloaded anything at all was NetVideoHunter, and even that only downloads 307 kb.Someone reviewing 1-Click YouTube Download said that YouTube has recently implemented new code. So these extensions apparently all need to be updated. ><
Someone else suggested that it was a problem with Firefox 3.6.13, but I tried downgrading to 3.6.12 (where I've never had this problem before) and the problem persisted.

Not working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's not working anymore! But it was great till it has worked. Would be great if the new version come out!
1.2.2 version just saves always 0 KB file size something.. but not the videos...
It worked for me for 2-3 days and it was fantastic... easy, really fast and super. But now it's not working...

I got Youtube Downloader 1.2.2 to use with Firefox v. 3.6.10. I tried to download using Firefox download manager. The file appeared in the download list, but with 0 bytes saved. The file does not appear at all in the folder itself. I tried different files on Youtube, from amateur video to professional ones. It never worked for me.

Some videos get modified sometimes. Otherwise this addon is OK and simple to use.

Modifies Video Content Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This downloader will modify the way some of the videos are displayed. In particular, some videos will show additional (undesired) content when they detect this downloader. For example, many of the VEVO videos, such as:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWrMeBR8W-c

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvyTY_oYR_c

will display a picture of Taylor Swift on the left side. She is not displayed prior to installing this Downloader. VEVO is quite clever with this!

Is the author planning an update? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using this extension for some time and really like it. But with YouTube blocking video downloaders, it is no longer working. Is the author planning to update to deal with the YouTube block?
