DownloadHelper is a Firefox addon so you need to use it together with the web browser FireFox.

Review by brizamarii on Feb 26, 2018 Version: Win 10 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




It's all up for grabs with FF extensions, ever since their dubious tossing of the prior extensions' APIs, in favor of the new ones. A number of former, good extensions have gone away. Maybe the problem is that I'm not yet trying the latest version of this extension . . . but I'm skeptical. (My ratings should be viewed in that light.) I tried this extension a few years ago, and found it semi-worthless then. This 6.3.3 version continues on in much that same vein, consistently failing to even detect videos that are playing. In the past, I also found xVideoServiceThief to be essentially worthless, but had some short-lived and limited success with Tubedigger 3.x. Jaksta was Hit or Miss, with a lot of misses. I had some impressive results with Ant Download Mgr., but over time found its insistent intrusiveness to be quite annoying. In the end I had to saddle it with a whole lot of rules / exceptions -- many of which it just ignored -- and then to disable it from automatic operation in the FF extensions manager. The much more techie learning curve and difficulty of use with solutions like URLSnooper or RTMPDumpHelper never really appealed to me.

So, *what* am I using currently for video downloads (with good success), you might ask ? Primarily, Fast Video Downloader and VideoGet, neither of which are included in the VH Software section. (But they should be !) On the free side, I like what I'm seeing with youtube-dl-gui, and with TV Downloader. The latter two I don't think are mentioned in the VH Software Reviews section either, but they are at least discussed here in the forums, with regularly updated links. None of these are browser extensions though, if that matters to you. While that format might be slightly more convenient, I think it's a lot more important that your tool of choice actually works !


Review by Seeker47 on Jan 6, 2018 Version: 6.3.3 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 2/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 2/10




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.


Review by Ron B on Apr 5, 2014 Version: 4.9.22 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10




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.

Great tool but no longer works with YouTube (Vevo for sure). Trying Freemake now...
