Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Although this add-on does work well in finding embedded content, its interface is unbearable. There is no such thing as keyboard shortcuts. As if that is not bad enough, you have to make 5 mouse clicks to download ONE of the media files. You have to 1. click the non-intuitive little fish icon way down at the bottom right in the status bar--there is no option to put the icon in the toolbar. Then you 2. click a pulldown menu for the file in order to select a download manager such as DTA. Next, and this is completely counter-intuitive, you 3. click the DownThemAll menu item and you get the standard 'Save As' dialog instead of the expected DTA one. Now 4. click the 'Save' button (or hit 'Enter') to finally download the file with DTA. Get it??? I don't… Now you're stuck with the 'UnPlug' dialog and no keyboard shortcut to close it. Even tabbing doesn't work so you have to 5. click the 'Close' button. If there is more than one file you want to download, you have to go through all 3 clicks again for EACH file--there is no multiple select option.

What I would expect:

1. A keyboard shortcut to open and close the initial dialog
2. An option to put the fish icon (please change that) in the toolbar
3. A checkbox next to each file to allow selection of multiple files
4. Keyboard navigation and shortcuts to do everything
5. Opening the dialog of the download manager as expected
6. An option to set the default downloader

You should be able to download multiple files with a few keyboard shortcuts.

Iffy but Loved Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've found it works best with Youtube, but it actually quit on me not too long ago...I dug into matters a little and found several recommendations of beta 2.055 or something similar, so I downloaded it and was back in business before too long. Only thing is, it no longer goes through Firefox's download manager for some reason, so it's anyone's guess as to when it finishes downloading a video...and it has wigged out a couple of times and left me with an incomplete download. All told, though, when it does work, (and it usually does), it's absolute perfection. I especially love being able to put it in the context menu only. Keep up the good work!

Перестал работать Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Перестал работать после обновления до последней версии Mozilla,хотя на предыдущих прекрасно работает.Суть в том, что после выбора файла из списка и нажатии кнопки "скачать" ничего не происходит.Прекрасный плагин,но, вероятно, его нужно немного подстроить...(Убедительная просьба к автору(ам))...С уважением и надеждой.....

Strange add...
I use it it since a short wile :
sometimes it works properly, sometimes it doesn't...
It shows results, but nothing happen as I click on "download".
On my second computer doesn't work at all...
I think I'll reinstal Jdownloader, that never fails.
Guess that for whom it works well, a good add... but in my case, only so-so !

Great plug-in for firefox, but change 2 things about it.

1) Always make it tell you EXACTLY what a video's resolution is (360, 480, 720P, 1080P, & others), because low, medium, normal, high, & so on don't tell anybody squat.
2) Let us change the NAME of what to save the video as.

Feature Request Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Configure->User lists CODECs in order of preference
Configure->User chooses preferred video quality

Results->One listing per video, best CODEC/quality match.
If only one video, can start download automatically.

Would make a great plugin even better.

Cheers.

Great product but unfortunately seems dead with either the latest changes to Firefox or Youtube. I haven't seen a recent change or review but I assume this is for all Unplug users and Youtube. Hopefully, developer is kind enough to update.

Downloaded this add-on in an attempt to find one that could still download videos from Dailymotion (since my usual add-on stopped working there a couple weeks ago), and it's the only one of the many I've tried that can! Not only that, but it downloads most videos from Dailymotion in MP4! Love it!

Most effective. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

UnPlug with DownThemAll is most potent video downloading tool.

Let us rename the file. Files with weird characters (double quotes) are not saved correctly.

Simply works. Any flash content on any website is successfully identified and can be downloaded thereafter as a .flv.

It's a pity there is not such an extension for Chrome yet... more than a pity, a tragedy for Google.

Those who cannot make it work have probably problems with computers xD

Simply the best. And latest version works with YT Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best YT (and others) downloader of all the ones I tried. It is simple and unintrusive, and the author seems to constantly keep it updated so it works again quickly every time the the sites change.

September 2012: version 2.50 didn't work anymore with YouTube, but 2.052beta (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/unplug/versions/2.052beta) does work.

YT Protocol Change to RTMP Breaks YT Downloaders Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On Sep13-12 in the U.S. and Sep14-12 elsewhere YT's switch to the RTMP protocol broke most if not all YT downloaders including CYS, Unplug, and all others I use and checked. For now the Video DownloadHelper Addon has a working update and the Video Audio Myxa Addon works. Also Zamzar was asked to stop offering YT video saving.

re: not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

No, it seems something did change. I keep getting phantom downloads. A "0 bytes" download shows up in the downloads manager, and no file shows up in the designated download location.

I've experienced this issue before, and it stopped happening after a few days. I'm not sure what causes it. Can anyone else confirm?
