I am on a medium speed wireless ISP in a rural area and want to be able to download YouTube videos so they can play without interruptions.

I found an Opera extension to download that requires that I place the downloaded script in my JS folder. I am new to Mac OS and don't know how to do this.

When I go to Preferences > Advanced > Content > JS options, the field for JS folder is blank. How do I create a file name there? Is this the correct way to do this?

Thanks,
Bart

If you want to download YouTube videos, Video DownloadHelper in Firefox is the best way, if you ask me.

As much as I would love you help you with your Mac-related question, if an extension requires that much configuration to work, it's not worth having, in my opinion. Honestly, I've never heard of the "JS folder" on a Mac before. If you could name the extension you're trying to use, I could look into it and figure out how to make it work.

Thanks for the reply. I have figured out how to make that JS folder.

The script I found is at: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/25105

However, I really don't know if this is what I should be using. As I indicated above, I just want to download Youtube videos for viewing without the interruptions due to slow Internet connection.

I don't use FF.

Thanks,
Bart

I was able to get it to work on Opera Portable on Windows 7 following these directions: http://www.opera.com/docs/userjs/using/#writingscripts

Basically, all you do is make a folder to contain all the .js files you want to use (which you seem to have done already), and tell Opera (via the Settings/Preferences) which folder that is.

You get this Download button below the video:
