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

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 version for this purpose.
