    I have used Chrome extension type video downloaders like Flash Video Downloader, Stream Video Downloader, Video Downloader Professional and Video
    Downloader for Chrome for a long time. But in the last few months or so, they have been progressively working less and less and now they will not work on most sites. The people that designed these are no longer responding to emails but they are still available in the Chrome store.

    Are there any free downloaders that still work? Chrome extensions are convenient and have always worked well. I am not looking for a Youtube downloader but, of course, it's ok if it will download them as well.

    Also, I tried to post this in the Video forum and it said it was not taking any new posts. Is that just the general header forum called "Video"?

    Thank you!

    I gave up on browser plug-ins. You should use youtube-dl, which supports many many sites. It is command line, though.

    There's a GUI available for youtube-dl. I've also used clipgrab successfully.

    You can't count on using just one app though. Streaming site mgrs don't like users dl'ing their content so they're always changing protocols.
