Download Videos from the Web
The most complete Web video downloader ! The popular Video DownloadHelper Firefox extension is now available for Chrome.
- save to your local disk the videos playing in a Web page
- support for HLS streamed videos

Note: support for complex streaming protocols and video conversion requires the installation of a companion application. This is because the browser (neither Chrome nor Firefox) does not provide the necessary interface. Once installed, the companion application is completely managed by the add-on and you don't have to worry about it. The companion application is free and open-source. It has already been installed over 10 million times.
Note: because of Google WebStore restrictions, the Chrome version of the add-on does not download videos from YouTube. Use the Firefox or Edge version for this purpose.
If you are an adventurous person and want to get new features in advance for the price of a little less stability and more frequents updates, you can install the beta version of Video DownloadHelper from https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/video-downloadhelper-beta/pfoiagbblcbmognbkekfpodpidedkmcc . This beta version is technically a different add-on from the stable, which means you can install both the stable and the beta versions.
