download youtube videos in chrome

I'm having trouble getting an addon/app for chrome to download youtube videos ...

I'm guessing is that because google owns Youtube and Chrome they remove such addons/apps?

also I try to get this »www.chromeextensions.org/other/e···nloader/ but install fails with this - »i.imgur.com/ek1Pe.jpg maybe I should get a developer version of Chrome that will let me install local tests of .crx = google addons?

Please advise ... thank you so much...

Same problem just today. I'm dreading having to switch browser, but this is a dealbreaker.

So you can only use add on's from their store? I understand disabling no-"official" add-ons from 3rd party sites by default, but don't agree with just refusing it completely.

Try it with latest Chromium build:
1. Download it from Softpedia
2. Unzip into a folder. E.g. C:\Program Files\Chromium
3 Launch it pointing to a profile folder
chromium.exe -user-data-dir=PathTo\profile
(if profile folder doesn't exist, new folder will be created)
4. In chrome://extensions page check Developer mode and drag and drop that extension file (.crx) into the browser.

We've reviewed lots of tools for downloading videos from the Internet, and the quality of these programs has varied widely. Some make the process a breeze, while others are practically worthless. We're happy to report that Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome is among the better offerings in this category. It's easy to use and it works reliably.

The extension installs with little fuss and then appears as an icon to the right of Chrome's address bar. Flash Video Downloader seems to work a bit differently for each site. On YouTube, for example, we clicked the icon and a small window appeared giving us a choice between downloading the video as an FLV or an MP4 file. On DailyMotion, the extension automatically downloaded the video as an FLV.
