- di Meatshield, 2 mesi faValutata 2 su 5Developer updated their product. Product still doesn't work (for me). Don't get me wrong, the product functions on "normal" videos that aren't aren't altered upon upload. But if the uploader alters the video in any fashion which changes how YouTube indexes the said video, the downloader fails even function. The interface won't even show up on the page.
Example: Say a video goes up and you save it to a favorite playlist. The uploader than decides to change the video from "public" to "unlisted." Because of how it's indexed, it throws a HTTP 410 error. And while the URL itself will still redirect to the video in a browser, the downloader (and every type of of player/recorder I've tried) all throw the same code. So the short answer is you'll have to screen capture videos if you follow creators that make a habit of this. I'm not sure if the developer has a workaround solution for this type of behavior which Mozilla (and browsers in general) account for it at the application level when it parses info through the OSI model that they can build in to their addon. It would definitely be nice.
- di giuuulian, 3 mesi faValutata 2 su 5The extension is still being marketed as "1080p / 256kbps dl capability" but truth is that even 720p is not available for free users anymore. First they cut 1080, then 720p, hiding behind the same excuses to push the PRO version.
This extension did not build its reputation with the paid version. What can you do with 480p videos in 2021?
- di Dennis R. Levesque, 3 mesi faValutata 2 su 5First, I have more than one downloader. The request to review it did not include an icon/logo of this app, so I don't really know which app this review is for. So, I can't really say much about it. Big mistake right off the bat. Second, the permissions required to use MANY apps are too general and not restricted enough. Example: "Access your data for all web sites". This is way too broad and a BIG security risk. This should be restricted to specific items for specific reasons, and not left to the honor system. Other things like reading my clipboard is not necessary, and should be restricted to reading only what is pasted into the app by the user. If I don't want to paste it, then it shouldn't be allowed to read it. All this applies especially to passwords and user data. It's way too easy to abuse it's purpose. The purpose can be fulfilled without access to user's passwords and sensitive data; you just have to do it the right way without taking the "easy way out" to avoid the effort.
I like the idea of the app and it's output, but it's internal workings are seriously flawed. It needs a serious audit.
Instead of donating to the app/cause/support, I'd rather help develop the app by guiding the programmers on how they ought to program it. Any takers?
- di Mirhanda, 4 mesi faValutata 2 su 5This used to be good, but now they want you to hand over a fist full of cash before you can download. Was one of my favorite add ons for years and years, but now I guess I'll uninstall.
- di James, 5 mesi faValutata 2 su 5Same as many other comments in the past 24h... download button gone, hopefully a fix coming soon. I don't blame the developer but of course right now the app is useless.
- di Utente Firefox 13213923, 5 mesi faValutata 2 su 5This add on wastes so much of my life. Look developers: Charge me whatever you need to. I don't care. Just give me a service that actually works. As fast and simple and high quality as possible. Charge whatever you need to. Stop being a child. Grow up and be a real business.
- di Utente Firefox 12552015, 6 mesi faValutata 2 su 5Using less and less these days, partly as i'm using YouTube less.
When I discovered Illinois Wrestle on YouTube, great 4K media with color and action to learn editing in DaVinci Resolve, and when you want more than 2 or 3 files, it really helps organise your flow to use something like HD Video Converter Factory.
As experiment, go to Illinois Wrestle, and see how long it takes to download 4 clips with Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express, and its 1080 not 4K. And YouTube is using Googles codec VP9 , its free so it will be the next H.264 ... well VP9 compete directly with H.265 which wont go away because Blu Ray, but will never be universal like H.264 (Sony PS & Apple).
Its an ever changing dynamic video landscape out there. Good luck everyone
