while it does work for Youtube - it doesn't work for Dailymotion
the videos on the page aren't detected.
untested on other sites

on the youtube video I tested on it didn't leave a watermark (as far as I could see - I might have been looking in the wrong spot?)

I've noticed to my horror that dailymotion is now making it near impossible to d/l it'svideo content from it's site since the TPP (SOPA on steroids) became a reality last week and now this is all it does instead of giving you any choices in video content to download it now merely records the stream which is a slow & painful process, see attached screen cap.

My Firefox is the current version & Video Downloadhelper is vers 5.5.0a9 which I believe is a developer alpha.

Any ideas for a fix to counteract whatever dailymotion has done to thwart the d/l it's content?

I would suggest if your getting others with the same issue as I have to remove dailymotion from the supported list till a solution can be found.

Thanks for reporting.

I confirm there is currently a problem with Dailymotion. I investigate on the issue.

I don't think there is any TPP involved here. Just an engineering change at Dailymotion.

Could you install version 5.5.0a10 from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/versions/ and let us know if it now works for you ?"

" Version 5.5.0a10 Released October 14, 2015 603.0 kB Works with Firefox 36.0 and later
Fixes October 2015 changes in Dailymotion. "

works for me currently for Dailymotion site
raised stars back up to 4 (I might give it a 5 later, assuming I don't find any other issues)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4.1).

complains with a message

"This operation needs to have a converter installed on your system to aggregate the video and audio streams."

it might work with the EXTRA 'converter' installed, but I am not going to bother with it.
