This video downloader successfully downloaded video files from our favorite Web sites. But it's important to note that this program simply downloads the file; you'll need to install a separate program to play the video if you don't already have a player available.

Flash Video Downloader for Firefox adds an icon to both your navigation toolbar and your status bar. It also can be found in your context menu. If a Web site is not supported by the extension, both icons will be deactivated and gray-colored. They're ready to go when the icons are blue. Downloading a video was as simple as clicking the arrow button. Once clicked, a window appeared containing the link for download. It took a minute or two to complete the download, but the file appeared on our desktop. The extension does have a hot key combination option and the capability to save downloaded files to your location of choice. Help is available through the publisher's Web site, and although we found it a little vague, it did walk us through the basic steps of downloading a file.

Once we downloaded the video file, we were able to open it in our default video player. This no muss no fuss video downloader is pretty basic and easy to operate, making it perfect for novices.

Pros

AWESOME - Worked with my older Firefox - 3.03 - fast install - ******* button - ripped Christina Candyman in a blink from youtube after embed was blocked - has HIGH/LO res setting - just frigging awesome DOES WHAT ITS SUPPOSED TO DO

Cons

I hate the fact that I didn't discover this thing sooner and downloaded 101 other bozo utilities when THIS ADDON DOES IT - period...

Summary

DIRPY was cool but couldn't get some youtubes because of embed blocks - other software crashed or didn't install or didn't work and other software req newer firefox - probably would have crashed - THIS JEWEL does NOT crash - slick button in bottom right status bar did it - IT WORKS - kaboom - done - *******

 |  Version: Flash Video Downloader for Firefox 1.9.6

Pros

not apply because it did not work.

Cons

not apply because did not work.

Summary

I get very confused with all the different downloaders, what worked and what messed up Firefox. Right now I am using the Adobe but had to be sure to let Firefox know it was okay otherwise it would not even download let alone install.

"You Tube Still Not Accessible"

July 22, 2008  |  By grayghost14

2008-07-22 17:55:16  |  By grayghost14

 |  Version: Flash Video Downloader for Firefox 0.3

Cons

Every time I want to access You Tube and any other streaming video, I have to go over to IE, which is a nuisance. I thought,when I downloaded this new flash player I had hit the jackpot, thinking, "It's about time!" It isn't. Maybe I did something wrong??? I hope so!

Thanks for this chance to vent. :)
