  1. I'm looking for programs where you can download any video from sites like youtube,ebaums,revver,dailymotion,etc and make them mpegs,avi's,etc. Anyone have any suggestions? right now Real Player is the only one,but i don't know if it downloads as a .ram or .rm file,or if it's a .flv file. if it is a .flv file,how do i convert,or is it autodone? etc. Let me know. Thanks for your time.

    Firefox and this:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006
    Just disable the plugin/add on when not in use....it doesn't function 100% with the newest Firefox version....at least not for me.

    It hasn't caught up to the newest version of Firefox yet...that's all.

    I have no issues with download helper in FF 3.6, however none of these will work with all sites. Some sites go out of their way to obfuscate the true location of the videos, so you may have to use several different programs to cover all bases.

    Of course if you are unwilling to take even low risk chances to find a solution, you may as well give up now. Many of these sites change how they do things regularly to try to protect their content, so you will always be playing catch up and having to constantly update the software you use. No risk, no play.

    And every day a number of sites switch to encrypted RTMP protocol so Download Helper no longer works for them.

    Like I said earlier, you have to keep it updated, and nothing does everything.

    Downloader Helper has a built-in converter, so you can convert the files as you download them. Be awrae though that most of these files are pretty average quality, and converting them yet again will only reduce that quality even more.

  12. i guess it'll inform me when there is an update. if so,that's no problem. but i would only need the convertor once. why convert twice? hehe. Anyway,if Download Helper is the best,i'll look into that one. Thankis again for your help. I hope i didn't bug you,or anything.

  13. If Download Helper ever cracks the encrypted RTMP protocol a swarm of lawyers from Adobe will descend upon them. Just like it happened at Replay Media Catcher. For encrypted RTMP streams you'll need to use screen capture utilities.
