    Cool Firefox add-ons for downloading YouTube videos

    I have a 3g dongle with limited data allowance so when i'm elsewhere on an unlimited line I download all the clips from youtube i want using Download helper extension on firefox and save them on my flash drive for viewing later.

    It couldn't be more simple, install addon: addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/3006/addon-3006-latest.xpi and restart firefox, then whenever you open video in youtube a small icon appears just above the video, press it to immediately download the named video as mp4 wherever your downloads go, or click the side of the icon for more options, like download & convert to other formats etc

    It works on most other video sites as well

    I use chrome mostly now, and never bother with download managers in this browser or others for various reasons like huge window, need to always run in background etc. In Firefox however there is an exception - DownThemAll is a very simple yet very effective addon. It vastly increases speeds, minimal imnterface with nice features and is at one with firefox - addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/201/addon-201-latest.xpi

    Most of you probably thinking "check this n00b trying to tell US about this "i know but thought i'd try and share some info with anyone who might find useful before i request any kind of help

    I reluctantly approved this, but we normally don't get into such things.. hopefully it will be of use to some visitors here.

    I've been using downloadhelper (The 1st link in OP) for a long time, and works fast and simple...

    Definitely worth using...

    I just use IDM (Internet Download Manager) to download videos on all streaming sites.
