Editors' review

Downloading FLV files has never been easier, thanks to FlashGot, an unobtrusive Firefox add-on. Even without a user guide, this simple program will have the least experienced user downloading files in an instant.

Once installed, FlashGot can be accessed through the Tools menu or by the easier method of dragging and dropping a shortcut to your toolbar. If you access it via the Tools menu, you'll find settings for capturing video selections and creating galleries. With both the menu and the toolbar shortcut, you have the option of automatically downloading video files as you find them. Options include selecting your download destination and download manager, as well as adding the file extensions you want to recognize during the download process. During our tests, we had the Autostart feature selected. As we visited our favorite video-sharing Web sites, the program immediately started downloading selected videos. Clicking on the tiny status bar icon introduced our download manager so that we could check the file's progress.

The only help we found was through a forum link offered on the publisher's Web site, but most people won't need any guidance setting up or using FlashGot. It's intuitive and user-friendly, and we recommend it for any Firefox user looking for nearly effortless FLV file downloading.

    "Does not work properly with JDownloader"

    May 14, 2014   |   By pohatcong

    Version: FlashGot 1.5.5.8

    Pros

    Can be used to "capture media" others cannot.

    Cons

    When it captures most media the program labels it "videoplayback." When entered into JDownloader once, it works. When another file is entered into JDownloader Flashgot gives it the same name "videoplayback". JDownloader will then tell you "that file is already being downloaded". (Remember, this is a different file.) There is no apparent way to prevent this. How would JDownloadwer know its different? Falshgot allows a change of "package" name, but will absolutely not change the "videoplayback" file name. Should be an obvious fix but they can't be bothered. Suggestion to turn off "automatic download" does not work.

    Summary

    If you like some REALLY SLOW downloading on JDownloader, use this!

    "its good to have a one click, thank you mam"

    February 15, 2014   |   By no1_crazyred

    Version: FlashGot 1.5.5.8

    Pros

    Installed easy, easy to use, saved any and all my .mp4 videos without any errors. Can't understand the complaints of MS won't open as its a Foxfire add-on.

    Cons

    none, none, none.

    Summary

    Life is easier that I am using it now.
