Like many others I watch all kinds of videos on the internet and many I want to save for myself so I can watch off-line. Over the years I’ve tried to download on different web browsers. the only way it ever worked was to install an extension or plug-in. Ant video downloader was one I used for years on Mozilla Firefox. Today I wanted to download a T. Rex concert from YouTube so I started searching through the Firefox extensions on my Linux Mint 20 kitchen laptop. I found a top-rated one called video downloader helper. I installed it and an icon now displays along the upper right corner of Firefox. It’s kind of hard to determine when a video is downloading after I click on the blue and red icon. It took awhile to find it’s download folder but it is under /Home/dwhelper.
Do you something different to download internet videos? What do you use?
