Alternative approach of downloading videos in Firefox 3

Now you don’t have the luxurious benefit of RealPlayer 11 (see my article How to download online videos using RealPlayer 11) after installing Firefox 3.  Wow, I can hear people using RealPlayer 11 before are bug-eyed, screaming and banging their chairs. Well, the world is not going to end. Here comes the rescue, Firefox Video DownloadHelper add-on. Although most probably you don’t like the idea, but you have to bear with it for now until RealPlayer has an update on its plugin for Firefox 3. The other point is you don’t really want to copy, paste and strip those html things and download your favorites.

Anyhow, it’s your choice.

What can DownloadHelper do for you:

The easy way to download Web videos from hundreds of YouTube-like sites. This works also for audio and picture galleries.

Installation
Install Video DownloadHelper add-on is simple and easy.

How to use
Just browse through the pages as you are used to, when DownloadHelper detects it can do something for you, the icon gets animated and a menu allows you to download files by simply clicking an item

There is another fancy and useful feature that you may want to have, which is to convert the downloaded videos to other formats, read Video Conversion with DownloadHelper for details

Here is the full user manual from downloadhelper.net
