More about this extension

2010 update : i’m sorry but the extension is no longer supported … we recommend :
Get download links from all popular video sites like Youtube, Metacafe, Dailymotion and more.
Current version doesn’t support all sites, just the fallowing : Blip, Dailymotion, Flickr, GoogleVideo, Imeem, Metacafe, Myspace, Revver, Sevenload, Veoh, Vimeo and Youtube.
More supporting sites will come soon.

Enjoy the stuff.
Update 1 : Support for Vimeo added again, but Chrome doesn’t seem to support ( no “save as…” prompt ) direct download. For downloading, click download link you get from vimeo and copy / paste in Firefox or IE ( you will get the “save as..” prompt there ).
Update 2 : Youtube support only.
