Video DownloadHelper

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One minor problem with FF3 - the icon next to the address field no longer functions, but DH still works by right-clicking and choosing the video from the DH menu. It DOES work on Google Video with FF3, despite what a previous reviewer says.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1). 


How to Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with youtube any more and I suspect with others. Shame, great extension.

However, go to youtube using IE (I know, I know!) and you can find a file in your cache/temporary internet files with a title such as "get_video?video_id=YOUTUBEID", where YOUTUBEID is the id of the file which shows up in the youtube URL. Execute the file and you should be able to downloadload the file to a specified directory (then rename as FLV as per usual). Much as I love FF and hate IE, it's the only way I've found to do it.
