    Lol, I liked the idea of this plugin so much that I decided to stick with an older version of Chrome.... I have BETA 3.1.195.10 and the addon seems to work. So when downloading vids I have to specify the filetype? Also it would be really freakin cool if one could download just the audio from the video. I was wondering if this is possible? Thanks for all your hard work Waha; I've browsed around a little bit and seen you all over the place. So as far as video grabbers go for chrome which one would be the best? I have this one because Waha seemed like she worked hard on it and it seems to work fine!

    There's only a few sites where you can choose the format, this is because the website actually offers the video in multiple formats. The extension can not actually modify the data though. So I can't make it convert the format or extract the audio as of yet. Possibly with an NPAPI plugin and a lot of work. I'll keep it in mind while I'm figuring out how to write those.

    I'm working on a way for the content page to communicate with the extension right now, and once that'd complete I'll be able to finish this extension.

    As for similar extensions, this is th only one I know of that can download more than youtube for Chrome.

    On youtube, when you download the file, you should use the file extension .flv
    There are many flv players, like VLC, and plenty of converters as well, like SUPER, to use after you download it.

    The rest of the sites actually give the extensions in the download, I believe. (It will generally be .flv if it doesn't.)

    Wow, thanks a ton! So Youtube is the only site where I have to do this and it will always be .flv that I need to add?

    Code:
    javascript:if(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/)){document.location.href='http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt='+(isHDAvailable?'22':'18')+'&video_id='+swfArgs['video_id']+'&t='+swfArgs['t']}
    that is some code that i found a while back...

    ...it downloads the mp4 version from youtube...may be useful for those who dont want to download the software to convert from flv to mp4...

    it will also download the HD version of the video if it is available...

    ...also im unable to download any of your extensions
