Video Downloader Extension With Multiple Sites Support

by Chrome Blog on January 24, 2010

We have covered about the various video downloader extensions for Google Chrome earlier and got a good response from users. However, most of those extensions were mostly based on Youtube and did not supported other popular video sharing sites, until i came across this one.

Video Downloader For Chrome – Download From Multiple Sites

Video Downloader For All Sites is a neatly made extension which integrates seamlessly with your Google Chrome browser. The whole process of getting the download link from various popular video sharing sites is very quick and neat with minimal issues.

video downloader 1

Once the extension installs, you get a nice browser action icon as is now a trademark of Google Chrome, clicking on the icon opens a small box in the browser itself which asks you to provide the URL of the video which you want to download. Once its supplied, the extension gets the download link from the site and provides you with a couple of video format in which one may download the file (as seen in the screenshot).

video downloader 2

As of now, the extension supports a lot of popular video sharing sites such as Youtube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo, Blip, Veoh, Myspace, Google Video, Sevenload, Flickr, Revver, etc.

The extension is still in its development phase, so expect a lot of improvements from the developer.

I miss something like file automatic naming

5 blowyourbrain 02.03.10 at 5:29 am

does not work on incognito mode.

6 Reddy 02.22.10 at 5:36 am

Is there anyway I can download videos on some links that are not from the mentioned standard video sites.
Currently, I am using firefox plugins, which automatically detect all videos in current page/link and help me to select which one to download.
I am eager to know if this plugin or nay chrome plugin can do the same. Surely, this works with youtube, But I am not able to download many videos in several other sites using this plugin.

Currently, the supported site is limited, unfortunately. In the future will try to add more supporting sites.

Thanks for your comment.

i really like downloadhelper for firefox, i wish there was an equivalent for it in chrome. it was much simpler to use than video downloader, that being said, video downloader seems to be very sufficient, just not as user friendly.

9 anne 04.02.10 at 12:25 pm

not working lah, still can’t download

10 Eric 04.04.10 at 10:56 pm

you can also use javascript in a bookmark form to get stuff from youtube. here is how: make a new bookmark, and use this for the url to get mp4 version of the video “javascript:window.location.href = ‘http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=’ + swfArgs[‘video_id’]+ “&fmt=18” + “&l=” + swfArgs[‘l’] + “&sk=” + swfArgs[‘sk’] + ‘&fmt_map’ + swfArgs[‘fmt_map’] + ‘&t=’ + swfArgs[‘t’];”
and for the flv version “javascript:window.location.href = ‘http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=’ + swfArgs[‘video_id’]+ “&l=” + swfArgs[‘l’] + “&sk=” + swfArgs[‘sk’] + ‘&fmt_map’ + swfArgs[‘fmt_map’] + ‘&t=’ + swfArgs[‘t’];” hope this helps!

Thanks. But I can’t install this extension :(

Video downloader functionality is still poor. Extension for firefox enables me download any video from any site. I would appreciate same functionality on chrome, in fact, this one addon still keeps me with firefox…
Thankx for effort, I’ll watch the progress.

14 Webozaurus 04.30.10 at 5:56 am

A new update on the extension is now available for download ( Extension Admin )

15 martin 05.08.10 at 7:03 am

I couldn’t get it to work. it says you can try using source code.

17 Tery 05.24.10 at 4:04 pm

All right bruce right on the money!!!! I miss my video download helper. im forced to use chrome because my firefox keeps crashing. I like chrome dont get me wrong. but that one extension separates them both. I need it asap guys!!!. Thanks for listening

18 Martin 05.26.10 at 2:41 am

Looks well, but I need one that works with livestream.com, any ideas?

19 Extension Admin 05.26.10 at 8:16 am

@bruce, @tery … the extension is working now. You have to upgrade manually and have java enabled. That’s all.

20 Ihar Kviatko 05.29.10 at 3:55 am

It doesn’t work with my Chrome (45376).
Just draws a snake from blues balls and say something like “You need restart your browser…”.
I restarted browser but without any success.

21 Extension Admin 06.15.10 at 4:16 am

@ Ihar… do you have java enabled?

22 me 06.21.10 at 10:37 am

doesn’t work on AdultSwim.com

23 Loki 07.22.10 at 1:07 am

This no longer works on Youtube. Every time I try to download something, I get a “Forbidden” message saying I don’t have permission to access it.

24 Blackcoil 07.24.10 at 9:27 pm

Check this one out:


Clean, simple and it even names the vids properly for you.

25 Tommas 09.07.10 at 1:02 pm

26 Den 09.11.10 at 4:37 pm

Doesn’t work for YouTube which is frustrating. Doesn’t work on couple of other sites either.

27 Ronda 10.29.10 at 5:52 pm

can we use this for music like we can on firefox?

28 Dubiaku 02.17.11 at 7:45 pm

Just always loads something called “pussylane” porn for every site I try to use it on. No box for entering any URL. Doesn’t work.

29 Tom 04.23.11 at 9:16 pm

it sounds suck!

30 Amit Roy 05.04.11 at 2:28 am

hey, I tried and installed the plug in as well. However, its not helping me at all. please suggest me where I have gone wrong….

31 Raja Waqar 05.07.11 at 9:19 am

I really wish if Orbit GET IT worked with chrome…..i’m dying for the moment when orbit gets totally compatiable with chrome….that would be the best day of real INTEGRATION!!!! anyways thanks from Pakistan!

32 sinwhoo 05.31.11 at 4:29 pm

33 COpycat 05.31.11 at 10:13 pm

Lol, orbit doesn’t work with google chrome, not even download helper? Let’s get back to mozilla.

34 Inside WordPress 06.22.11 at 8:03 pm

Hey thank you. This is amazing and helpful. Thanks thanks thanks

35 Mark 06.27.11 at 8:00 pm

Thsi sis Complete and total CRAP, WELCOME TO PUSSYNET? WTF is that? I haven’t gone to or will I go to porn sites and that is a sponsored link or whatever? ALL said and done this is garbage and doesn’t work so don’t bother. What is says and what is shown is NOT what you get!

36 lf 07.19.11 at 5:33 pm

so, no suggestions anyone? how about the developer?
or is this just a google joke? pussylane.net?
I dont need a plugin or an extension for porn, if I want porn I browse it myself!

37 pmu 08.13.11 at 7:55 am

To the Developers, it’s there anyway to make this extension to working like Video Download Helper in firefox browser. Because it is make sense that the extension should have capability to grab any video links of any web sites. It shouldn’t limit or depends on some web sites.

38 riceroni 08.17.11 at 12:59 am

Doesn’t work. When I try to enter the URL of the video some sponsored link thing keep coming up then when something else finally happened it like browsed to some website or something. Anyway didn’t remotely work like described in the instructions.

39 Oz 09.24.11 at 4:19 pm

The official version on the Chrome extensions site may have been hijacked. Does not do ANYTHING to download a video. Instead, the popup window shows an advertisement for the domain “pussylane”. Sorry guys. Where’s the real version?

40 Eymard 10.21.11 at 3:52 am

I am looking for this one. I am glad you have it. Thanks for the share. Downloading it now. =)

41 Stephen 11.11.11 at 7:35 pm

Just showed me ads. Very disappointed.

42 25233 11.14.11 at 4:39 am
43 zahid 11.22.11 at 5:52 pm

“Just showed me ads. Very disappointed”
Same here

44 brndmuc 11.24.11 at 2:03 pm

funny, when I click on the vdh-icon in grooveshark ( chrome, linux ), it says:

The domain pussylane.net may be for sale. Click here for details.

45 elektirikli cit 01.09.12 at 3:18 am

thank you its good

46 chirag 03.28.12 at 1:35 am

I’ve got the icon but on clicking it it doesn’t open any of box shown by your website but opens a advertisement of website aqiurethisname.com …plz help me!

47 Rodrigo 06.27.12 at 9:33 am

This is better: FVL Video Downloader. Look it at Chrome Webstore.
It doesn’t work for Youtube, but I’ve removed that restriction and it’s here:


48 vdubrusty 07.17.12 at 1:26 pm

Didn’t work at all for me. I’m really disappointed. All I get is some message about a domain name for sale. What’s that all about?

49 UVB 76 07.18.12 at 10:47 pm

thanks rodrigo, FVL works!

but im getting a warning from chrome suggesting an update for the manifest to version 2

50 Titus 09.05.12 at 2:51 am

Thankyou for your Info :)

51 Davinder 09.25.12 at 12:33 pm

cool.. thanks dude

52 kansan 10.05.12 at 5:36 pm

Firefox rarely gives me problems however I hoped to make Chrome a better back up for it, and was hoping to find a video down loader for Chrome that’s comparable to video downloader for Firefox, respectfully this isn’t it.

53 Digital Product Review 12.07.12 at 12:36 pm

I have been using this chrome video downloader extension for a while. It real helped me a lot. I love it much.

54 T.J. Swoboda 01.06.13 at 11:11 am

I’m getting the pussylane ad, too. Teach your shills some better English; I most certainly do not love it much.

I’m really inspired together with your writing talents as smartly as with the layout
to your blog. Is this a paid subject or did you modify it your self?

Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a great blog like this one

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content
seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or
something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
to let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
