Tries to force an upsell Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Windows users are essentially required to buy a $1/month subscription to get audio on many videos. Lame.
OK, the developer denied it, so I reinstalled, clicked on a video, and was promptly asked to install new software. There are actual legal reasons why it might not be already bundled into the addon, so I clicked on the LARGE INSTALL BUTTON, and was promptly shown to a page that wanted to charge me a monthly fee to run a piece of software... that STILL DIDN'T CONVERT VIDEOS.
It's highly deceptive adware. "Recommended by Video DownloadHelper"... "Get the FULL version of Vidine right now for just $1 for the first 14 days! + $97 after 14 day trial."
An obvious ripoff. MAYBE even malware, given the ridiculous price. Hosted on http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-converter3.php.
AT BEST, it's a complete ripoff. It may be malware, given the deceptive ad placement and price.
Clear, simple, free, works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Does all I need - downloads videos in my choice of available resolutions. Doesn't do shit I don't need in a downloader, like converting AAC/FLAC to WMV/ROT13, so it has no bullshit buttons in my way.
AND DOWNLOADS YOUTUBE VIDEOS WITHOUT A FUSS. Done.
Outdated, use "IE Tab 2" instead Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon has not been updated in well over a year (as of this date). IE Tab 2 has been updated this past week.
Clearly, this addon is abandoned and no longer being updated for compatibility with newer IE-only sites.
Blocks access to Google Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It blocks my access to Google pages, from Gmail to Google searches.

Uses the picsearch website to search for images, which is far inferior to Google image search. If you're looking for a G or PG-13 picture of a common search term, it will work.
