This downloader addon is quite useful not only for video. It also gets often updated to keep up with anti-download mechanisms of the sites.
What its not so good that it sometimes stops working and only 0 byte files are downloaded. Then you have to clean the Firefox cache and cookies.
It also cripples the titles - I don´t want them shortened.
But overall one of the better downloaders.
I've a load of downloaders installed, but this one is the best for grabbing online multimedia. Offers a list of formats for download, unobtrusive, the most reliable I've come across, I use the Linux and Windows versions and both are invaluable.
So kann man Videos auf Streamseiten ganz einfach herunterladen. Man kann die Videos auch gleich in ein anderes Format umrippen lassen ist dann aber mit Wasserzeichen, wenn man eine kleine Gebühr bezahlt bekommt man den Rip dann auch ohne Wasserzeichen. Super App
Better than "1 Click YouTube Video Downloader 2.1.4" because it works on other web sites besides just YouTube.
Only problem I see is it can't download VEVO published videos.
Otherwise, it wins 1st place.
Good job MIG
it works ,great thinking to make this app
Version 4.21 is complete rubbish with whatever YouTube and like sites have done to prevent downloaders from saving files locally. I hesitate sharply to even give it one star, but I can't submit a zero-star rating.
Its a really nice add-on! Kudos to the creators! No need to use the IDM.
I LOVE this add-on!
If you're visually challenged and are tired of turning off and on and changing the typical windows magnifier, THIS is the solutions and it's easy!
A awesome app, but actually, the flv movies are without sound, and the webm downloads is only in HD, the quality settings just not works.
Need a update for back works right with Youtube...
Great add-on but it doesn't work with VEVO channel on YouTube.
Here to make my yearly donation.
This gives me so much fun. It's constantly made better.
Been using it since Firefox 3.
I've been using this for 6 years to grab videos to DJ and make money with (lol) and you have kept up with every YT update. THANK YOU for coming through once again. This saves me hundreds $ monthly. Donated!
The name of the XPI file "Video DownloadHelper".
The name used in this web page is "Video DownloadHelper".
But the name of this add-on as listed by Tools/Add-ons is "Download Helper".
So why don't you spend just one minute changing the name in install.rdf to "Video_DownloadHelper"?
Alll you have to do is change this line:
JUST DO IT!
O MELHOR, para mim, faz muito tempo.
Existem outros que funcionam, mas não com a apresentação de opções deste.

BEST, since many time.
There are others, but nothing with the given options.
Congratulations, all the time...
This add-on helped me a lot.
Un excellent module complémentaire qui fonctionne parfaitement pour télécharger les vidéos depuis YouTube, Dailymotion et même avec certains débrideurs. Le meilleur outil de téléchargement selon moi.
I can`t live without it
Been using this to download so many videos and it works perfectly with FF23.
I absolutely love this Add-On. I will often find music online that I really like, or a Youtube video (my favorite is documentaries that I don't want to have to wait to download over and over!) that I'll want to keep on my computer when I don't have internet access. I use this add-on to download the file and keep it on my computer. It's great because the icon is three little rotating balls (blue, red, and yellow) that sits just to the left of the address bar. If I hear something I like, I can immediately click the icon and download the file. It will even let me convert it to another file-type that's compatible with specific programs. Even better: it lets you download multiple media at the same time! If the helper sees more than one file on the site you're visiting, it provides a drop down of the different file names so that you can choose the specific media you're looking for. I'm not sure what I'd do without this. :)
My only recommendation would be for the program to be a little more "updated." Although it provides the file name, it does it in a really archaic way. It needs a little 2013 makeover! Other than that it's great!
v4.9.21a1 not working with Vevo files again, but non-Vevo d/l just fine. I refreshed page, reinstalled 4.9.21a1 but to no avail. OK, wierd... I cleared cache again, refreshed page again and now I can d/l Vevo files.
I like Video downloadHelper extension and it help me a lot.
This is my all time lover add-on for all versions of Firefox. Great for downloading most of the videos from most sites!
I have been using this for years, Great product but just recently I'm being blocked from downloading the VEVO clips on youtube!! as you all know these are the only videos worth loading due to the quality ect, Highly frustrating since in the past they were so easily accessible with this program! I came here looking for a solution but looking back thru the comments here the problem has been an ongoing one which gives me little hope that this will be fixed soon :( I have
re-installed it 6x to no avail.. I gave a 3 star rating because I would hate to be the reason for someone else frustration. Thanks
4.9.20 and 21a1 are working on Youtube but reinstall is sometimes needed. try reinstall after uninstall if you cannot download.
I've tried the newest beta (4.9.21a1), but it is still not possible to download youtube vevo-videos.The resulting file always has a size of 0 Bytes.Hope this will be fixed soon.
