Update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As people keep asking for updates on this addon (it has been unmaintained by the original author for about one year), I'd like to note that I've been keeping updates of this addon since the beginning of this year as a new project:

Update available for new change in page format Rated 5 out of 5 stars

YouTube changed its page format again. The new version (1.5.5) has been fixed to handle the new format. It still does not show up in the addon's main page (it has to be reviewed by Mozilla), but you can get it by clicking "View all versions" at the bottom of the page.

Thanks!

I'm aware of this. That's why I haven't announced this addon in 1-Click's page. I currently haven't had time to get FF4 to run here (I'm using a fairly old system, so I'll need to update it before installing FF4), so it may take a while until I fix this addon to work with it. I hope to get this done until the end of April, though.

EDIT: Fixed! Now it works with FF4.

What happens exactly when you try to use it on FF4?
I changed 'maxVersion' in the addon description file to '4.0.*', can you reinstall it and test if it works now?
Thanks!

Fixed again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

YouTube made a slight change to the page format again, so my previous fix had to be fixed... :-)

Now it is a "true" addon; you should be able to install it just by opening the link. Since the original author seems to have disappeared, I intend to make this fix available through Mozilla's website soon.

Instructions, as requested Rated 5 out of 5 stars

1. Install the addon, if you don't have it already installed.

2. Find the file 'clickYoutubeDownloader.jar'.

a) On Windows, it will usually be in C:\Documents and Settings\<your-username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<some-random-string>.default\extensions\YoutubeDownloader@PeterOlayev.com\chrome\ . (Thanks MasterEd000, I don't use Windows so I couldn't check.) Alternatively, you can use Windows' "Find" utility and look for the file.

b) On Linux, it will usually be in /home/<your-username>/.mozilla/firefox/<some-random-string>.default/extensions/YoutubeDownloader@PeterOlayev.com/chrome/ .

3. Replace it with this file: http://inf.ufrgs.br/~vbuaraujo/foo/clickYoutubeDownloader.jar

4. That's it!

@rysss and others:
If the addon's author does not appear, I might make a new addon based on this one and publish it when I have some time. I guess I will do it until January 15 if an official fix is not published. If I do, I will announce it here. Thanks for the feedback!

Temporary fix Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I made a hack to this addon to make it work with the new YouTube page format. It is really a kludge; I hope that the addon's author will fix it in a proper way. This addon is great and I hope it's fixed soon.

Just find the file "clickYoutubeDownloader.jar" and replace it with this one:
