This is an "add-on", or plugin for Mozilla Firefox and will auto update when you update the Firefox browser.
I've used it for a few years and for the most part, it does a good job of downloading videos via the Firefox browser, mainly FLV and MP4 video, but it works for MPEG, WMV and JPEG image files as well.
It's free, never had any issues with malware or adware, but I don't use the video conversion part of the software so things may be a bit different in that department.

This browser plugin supposedly allows you to download any video from YouTube, but it only works correctly for non-HD video. If you try to download 720p or 1080p clips, you will get a file with working audio but non-functional video. This has to be a problem with the plugin, because there are other YT downloaders for Mac that allow perfect downloading of HD video.
