Looking for a free video downloader with no strings attached

I'm looking for a good free video downloader extension that has no ads, watermarks, redirects, etc.

I'm using Firefox version 19.0 with NoScript and ABP on Windows XP Home SP3.

Don't you see the coupon and game "options" when looking in tools? I've also read that it puts watermarks on downloaded vids. I'm Not sure if it only does that for converted vids though. It looks to be $28.50 to remove them.

If the author was up front about all this I would consider this extension. Who knows what future updates will add.

too much junk, services, converters.
Some people just wanna download the video and THATS IT.
Not announce it to every social site.

Even if you disable sharing it still says enabled on the about:config.

There's also this one for You Tube videos, which I have used:

However, I have also been using Video Download Helper for years w/no issues? Works great.

When I install Video DownloadHelper it sends me to this screen once. You can expand the sections to see what all comes with the installation. The page is basically a big ad. »www.downloadhelper.net/welcome.p···n=4.9.14

Here is a pic with the CouponsHelper and Play strategy games.




CouponsHelper links to another extension. Play strategy games links to hxxp://www.jocly.com/jocly/hub.

La Luna, Some of the reviews state that the extension you suggested shows ads. Are you seeing the same thing?

I'm using Firefox version 19.0.1 with ABP; on Windows XP and 7.

I've downloaded dozens of videos without issue and they play well with VLC Player.

Thanks Anon A Moose. I don't see any complaints in the reviews. I'll give it a go!
