    Version 4.8 597.0 kB Fonctionne avec Firefox 2.0 - 4.0b1, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.0.*


    On July 21st-22nd, some changes on YouTube servers broke the capability to download any specific quality variant of the video being watched.

    We immediately worked at finding a solution and adapt to the new system. We are now happy to release this 4.8 version, but this implied changes in the way DownloadHelper works, that you must be aware of.

    Format HQ18, corresponding to standard quality MP4 format, is no longer directly available. However, you can still download this format by reloading the entire YouTube page adding &fmt=18 to the page URL address. In order to make this operation simpler we now provide a new widget that appears within the YouTube page, next to the title.

    Clicking on the MP4 button, the page will reload and you will see a new entry .mp4 in the download menu. This corresponds to the former HQ18 format.

    To get this MP4 switcher widget to appear, you need to enable it from the add-on preferences, section Capture, tab YouTube.

    We know those changes may make DownloadHelper less convenient for some operations, but we hope you will understand we had to deal with technical constraints.
