The add-on and companion application function perfectly for me, no download limits like the video downloader I use, bug free, its ad free which I didn't expect to see and it doesn't redirect to a website like y2mate or some derivative to download the video. The quality of the video is based on the selected quality that is playing in YouTube so change it to something like 360p/720p maybe if you are saving on HDD/SSD space. It also registers some memes I get on Discord for download too funnily enough.
The only thing I could nitpick is the file format it comes out in on YouTube is .mkv which is a small price to pay for free video downloading as all you need is VLC player or an online file converter to .mp4 or .mp3 if you really need that and you are set. An internal converter for output to mp4/mp3 would be the icing on the cake but as far as I'm concerned this suits my needs well enough.
This was the best video download addon for Firefox, but it recently stopped working on kisscartoon.xyz and all it's related sites. Isn't simply not finding any videos, even when one is currently playing
I tried many video downloaders. This is the most reliable and works on all websites I tried. One thing I don't like: it seems to share the settings for all firefox-profiles on this computer. It should allow different setups (download directories etc) for each profile.
I tried many video downloaders and this one really works with HLS and segments. On my PC (Windows 10, all main softs updated), I always get this error message: "[HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)] video title Status: Error () Failed to move output file 'D:\Provisoire\xxx\yyy\output.bin' to Downloads directory as '\1050x576 - video title.mp4'. Error code 2 (The specified file is not found.) Tab #4, video: zzz" But I still can get the videos: I fetch the output.bin file and save it as .mp4 with Avidemux. NB : I changed the default segments download folder to access output.bin more easily but the error message was the same before. *** After your message below : all is working very well now ! I first reset the AVD options to default and at first try, it did not work ; then I changed the download folder to D:\downloads. Before that, AVD thought my download default folder was C:\ and probably it could not write in it.
"Failed to move output file" error usually occurs due to corrupted path to the downloads folder. Please note that destination path is not full in your error message. Please try to reset the path for downloads and temporary files to default using appropriate option at the top of AVD Downloads page and settings. AVD should save HLS streams in MP4 by default.
