After the Pop Candy attack I got from the recent DVD Videosoft update, it caused me to reinstall my OS sytem. Short story, I need to find a new way to download Youtube videos and mp3 files. If anyone has any recommendations be welcome to share it with me. I can't find any Firefox add-ons either because Youtube has been blocking add-ons from downloading their content.

I use the Firefox addon Easy Video Downloader. It works on all videos, not just Youtube. I used it yesterday.

What are you trying to download because nothing will download a DRM protected video clip?

I can't get it to download at 1080p or mp3 format. It wants to act on its own. I don't even think you can download Youtube vids at 1080p anymore because Youtube blocked their streaming to people who download at 1080p format.

One of the alternative chromium type browsers, Slimjet, includes a feature on youtube pages to allow to download YouTube video on the current page.   I have not tried doing this, so I cannot recommend either way, but the feature is available in Slimjet browser.

I don't convert clips to mp3. I Googled that and came up with these.

Freemake comes with Open Candy software. I know because users kept reporting it. I did my research and came across this program and after reading the reviews its best to avoid freemake.

I think the ability to download at 1080 depends on the quality of the original video upload.

mp3 is not a video format.
