Video DownloadHelper is a useful add-on for the Mozilla Firefox web browser, allowing you to instantly download videos from many different websites. Unlike standalone video downloader applications, it doesn't clutter up your desktop with one more icon or require that you run one more program whenever you need to download videos from streaming sites.

This handy Firefox extension ensures that you can save videos even if there is no "download" button on the website that you're using. Video DownloadHelper is a lot more reliable and easy to use compared to most of the free video download websites, which often have slow download speeds at peak usage times and make their visitors endure annoying ads before finally getting to the page with the real download link.

Video DownloadHelper is a browser add-on that can be extremely useful in a variety of scenarios. If you're using an Internet connection that is slow and has trouble playing videos from streaming websites seamlessly, you can use this Firefox extension to download the whole video and watch it from your PC without annoying interruptions. You can also use it to download a few episodes of your favorite TV series and save them to your tablet or laptop so that you have something to watch if you have a long plane or train ride ahead of you.

This video downloader extension is compatible with all of the world's most popular video sharing services, including YouTube, Google Videos, Dailymotion and a few of the top free adult video hosting sites. It automatically removes ads that may be played at the beginning of videos or included within them during playback. The development team behind Video DownloadHelper is always looking for ways to make their browser extension better by adding more video sharing services it supports downloading from and fixing any issues reported by users.
