Next ...

Add on in Firefox : Video Downloadhelper.

Can't show further other screenshots because when I want to take that screenshot, the dialoge with the error massage disappears.
Bottom line is It does not work. I get a message : Failed aggregating -name of file-

Hey guys,

Yet again, I do have a perfect working system.
All software in Linux(lots of it I do use) do work perfectly..!
Even VM + W7 + a very demanding 3D-CAD program that doesn’t run in Linux. All running simultaneously.
I also do upload + download using FTP, no problem there. I also upload/download using 'Wetransfer'.

I really do not understand why I have these problems downloading from Youtube.

Later on some more downloaders that failed....hold on...!

Hey,

Instead of posting what didn't work, l'm busy now installing Firefox add-ons to see what will work.
I chose one in the add-on list : 'Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express'.
It downloaded + saved in the correct format.
Drawback, only 1 download possible per session.
But at least, it is working...
Me...almost happy camper... :wink:

Another Firefox-add-on : 'Video Downloader Prime'.

Trying to download with that rubbish : error : No Videos to Download!
Very strange, at the time I had 3 (three) videos running.

YouTube Video and Audio Downloader (Dev Edt.)

This Firefox-add-on does work but only one download/session.
Earlier full installation of YTDownloader did not work at all.

Going to stop installing add-ones. I found three working downloaders.
That should be enough for other people in need of a working downloader.
Non of them can handle multidownloads, pity.

This thread could definitely be marked as SOLVED...
I only got 3 Add-ons working, but I suppose there should be far more.
On the first page of Firefox possible download add-ons I counted 17 video-downloaders. A few of them didn't work, but I suppose there are lots that do work.
