"video downloadhelper v4.9.1 - a nice Donationware video-DL's Firefox AddOn"
This is really a easy-to-use nice-working
video-downloads option for Firefox
(I use FireFox Portable Edition; I can execute Firefox from a flash drive on almost any Windows pc, without installing Firefox.)
This software is Donationware (they request you contribute if you
After perhaps 700 downloads (earier version), I donated modest $.
I have only made a handful of downloads under
Video-DownloadHelper v4.9.1 and Firefox Portable v4.0.1,
but DownloadHelper appears to work almost identically well.
I just don't like to rate anything as 10of10.
I have NO complaints (other than under "Cons").
- On most videos (e.g., Youtube.com and similar) I've tried,
- I can download. SOME, such as an entire television show episode,
- it did not work on. (I assume copy protection on the website.)
- Once you start the display of the video, the icon animates,
- and you can download the video as a file.
- (On some websites, the video automatically starts to display,
- causing the DownloadHelper icon to automatically animate.)
- Upgrading to (Firefox) Download Helper v4.9.1, appeared to require me to upgrade to Mozilla FireFox (Portable Edition) 4.0.1,
- and to make it work for me&gt;&gt;
- After install of Video-DownloadHelper v4.9.1,
- I had to: right-click on DownloadHelper icon,
- select preferences (behavior), and under &quot;When I click on the Icon,&quot;
- I selected &quot;Open Menu&quot; as the behavior,
- in order to be able to download.
- This is why I downrated &quot;Installation&quot;.
