Reviews

    Hi, this works great, even with youtubes new lame update as of November 3 (why, oh why did youtube have to do ANOTHER pointless update on MY BIRTHDAY of all days?!), I wholeheartedly recommend it.

  2. blueprinting says:

    So far, this is the best youtube downloader.
    You can choose format and resolution saved file.

    And, the most important… it works :)

  3. Allwynd says:

    works perfectly

  4. Excellent extension !!!

  5. Layne says:

    Dude this tool is really good. Simple but it does what it’s supposed to do.

  6. Mike May says:

    Adds a ‘Download’ dropdown just below the video you’re watching allowing you to choose MP4 or FLV download. Download then proceeds in the usual humdrum Chrome manner. It works. That’s all.

  7. Dan Waigand says:

    Best and most efficient youtube downloader. Works great as of November 28 2010. Excellent work.

  8. Jordan says:

    Just wanted to let everybody know that this extension is working great for me at the time of writing! I need to grab a client’s video off of YouTube for a project and the extension allowed me to do so. Thank you!
