    Default Firefox Add-on for Downloading Videos

    I am quite enchanted with my latest discovery, a Firefox add-on for downloading videos from Youtube and other locations to my computer hard drive. You can download it here if you want to give it a try.

    By default it downloads the file as a .flv file, a flash video file, but it gives you the option to simultaneously convert the downloaded file to other formats. After experimenting a bit, I decided to convert to .mwv format, which Windows Media Player can run. I can organize and play the videos from Picasa, which I also use for organizing my (mostly Zags) photo collection.

    The download program, which is called "download helper," also has an optional download of a program that runs .flv files directly, without the conversion step. However, Picassa can't yet run .flv format videos so I do the .mwv conversion.

    Llike a lot of free download sites, they try to sell you other stuff, so be aware and just stick to what you trust.
