No icon, no option to download.
New YT UI prevents DL Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Not only that but the file name when saving says "Youtube" and NOT the vid itself, wich's a huge shame...
I know you guys said "We're recoding the complement" on your official site but... Please hurry ^^;;;;;

Mandatory for downloading videos from YT Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The only free addon that lets you easily save full (non-protected) videos from Youtube (even Dash formats).
It's also quickly updated after each YT change.
The current version (5.7.36), however, has still some problems:
sometimes the download fails without warning or the program doesn't mux the audio.
Example to manually join video+audio via command line:
ffmpeg.exe -i "video.mp4" -i "audio.m4a" -vcodec copy -acodec copy "1output.mp4"
Does for free what some add ons charge money for Rated 5 out of 5 stars
While the interface is a little stark looking at first, it still finds and downloads videos just easily. The best thing about this add on is that it handles youtube's adaptive audio/video format without making you pay for "conversion software" (looking at you video downloadhelper) that can be done for free with available tools on the internet. As this add on aptly proves. Your Youtube experience isn't complete without this add on.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.34).
Great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Best YouTube downloader there is that I could find!
- Filenaming doesn't seem to working. I set it to "[filename] ([resolution])" but all I get it when I download is "[filename]"
- The information icons in the options menu don't work. I wish they did so I could better understand the options under the "Audio" tab (MUXing audio?).
- Wish there was an option to only display the highest quality video (similar to the highest quality audio option)

This is the Best Youtube Downloader Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have tried several, and in the end, I concluded that there is none better than this. Try it, learn all its ways, install FFMPEG as required, be patient, and your rewards are ample. Works great in Linux Mint! Contribute to the programmer.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.34). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Thanks for the great review :)
Works perfectly after you figure it out Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The advantage to Complete YouTube Saber (CYS) over other YouTube video downloaders is that it allows you to download a video in the highest resolution possible for that video. It also provides a host of additional download options. In order to accomplish all this, CYS relies on an external program called "FFmpeg."
CYS achieves full functionality only after you download and save the FFmpeg program to your computer. The program doesn't actually install; it just sits in the folder where you've saved it.
To his credit, the developer provides an interface within the add-on to facilitate the download. Unfortunately, the interface is somewhat confusing and defaults to an option to download FFmpeg in a format that requires you to install another program just to decompress the download. Who needs that?
It's best to avoid the built-in interface and download the latest version of FFmpeg manually. Go to the FFmpeg download site at
Select the appropriate options and click on the "Download FFmpeg" button. You'll get a zipped folder which can be decompressed in the usual way.
After you've saved the unzipped FFmpeg folder to the location of your choice, select the "FFmpeg" tab in CYS, select the option "I have already downloaded FFmpeg," and enter the location where you've saved it. Your file path will conclude with the "bin" folder of your unzipped download, within which the file "ffmpeg" resides.
Thanks for the 5 stars!!
This really needs to be ported to chromium Rated 5 out of 5 stars
With Mozilla planning to basically kill off most plugins going forward, I don't know if it will be smart to stick with FF.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.34). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Are you using "Save to Default Folder"? Try "Save As" instead, it should work. We are working on a fix for the default folder issue.
Toolbar icon problem Rated 3 out of 5 stars
CYS toolbar icon, remains visible and enabled either without submenus or worse, displaying a submenu for a video that was on a closed YT tab, even if no YouTube tabs are open and the "Always visible" option is unchecked, in last FF beta version 52.0 (64-bit).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.34).

File Naming not working on Pale Moon Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I' m using PM version of CYS 5.7.34 and it seems File Naming feature doesn't work at all now. With CYS 5.7.32 it didn't always work properly either (ever since the 0-byte issues started to pop up with music videos few weeks ago) but switching to a different tab and then back usually fixed it. No matter what tags I use (normally [filename] - [video_id]), I just get the video title, nothing more.
I'm on Pale Moon 26.5.0, I also tried it on a different PC with a new install of PM 27 and it's the same story.
We are fixing this...
Works perfectly! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Tested CYS 5.7.34 on Firefox 50.1.0 64bit, Windows 7 64bit SP 1.
Until so far, really all videos were downloadable without any problem or delay (tested 400+ videos). No unusual browser behavior - smooth as always.
Downloaded videos play fine.
And finally even the 0 bytes bug is gone for good. This absolutely made my day.
I've used CYS since long time (even before they were at Patreon) and I can only say 'thank you' to the devs!!
Everybody, please keep in mind that the devs are doing a really good job with this addon. It's free to use and it can be a tricky hell of work to keep this lightweight addon fully functional and up-to-date.
Great thanks to devs and all supporters!
Appreciate the support, thanks for the review :)
