flv movies downloader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

nice little addon. easy to use. just click and the movie downloads. nice work. the only thing i'd like to see added to it's functionality is a built in converter.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.41). 

Download Youtube Videos HD 1080p, Megavideo, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Metacafe, etc.

Not the best Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've tried this add on for quite a few months now and finally came to the conclusion that it doesn't always do as it promises. It promises many supported websites but the truth of the matter is it only truly works on Youtube (most of the time). There has never been a time ive been able to download videos on veoh, dailymotion, or metacafe, Just youtube. However, it doesn't always work on youtube either. You see a video you want to download and under it is a "keep-tube" button which, when you click it, doesn't download the video automatically but instead takes you to a keep tube page which Firefox may or may not have blocked as an attack page. (this has been happening today). Assuming firefox didn't block this ad infested page you are then to scroll down to the bottom and wait (usually 5 seconds) until the page loads links and buttons they call "download options" this is where you get a choice of downloading unpopular formats of either high or low qualities of mp4 or flv. that is all. (keep tube is not a converter). in many cases you finally get the Vids you've been clicking for but more often is when the page never loads the download options at all. and you're left waiting but nothing loads. if you leave the computer and come back 15 minutes laters you will find that nothing's changed. If it's a mistake for me to say that this is a regular occurance then i will say that it's definitely a Weekly occurance. If you go to the main "keep-tube" page, assuming that it hasn't also been blocked as an attack page, there is an option of complaining about the problems you are having with the keep tube addon, however if you get a response it's always the same "Upgrade your java", even if you already have the latest version. I give this addon a 1 because, tho it is easy to use, there is tedious clicking of buttons to an ad page that may or may not load to give you the vid. the AD always loads, however the vid may not. and the pages get reported as attack pages way too often There are much better addons that will give you the vids with just one click, some will even convert to popular formats. this add on is ok, but not the best
