Video DownloadHelper Comments

There is a better alternative

Comment by donalddack
about Video DownloadHelper and YouTube By Click Nov 2014

Personally I prefer to use Small YouTube By Click iconYouTube By Click

YouTube by Click is better due to the following reasons:
1) Supports downloading of an entire youtube playlist
2) supports many video sites
3) much easier download process
4) the interface is much easier to understand

I use to use this a lot, but nowadays I just buffer the video or whatever, and then goto my Cache folder of my webbrowser and just copy the buffered file.

This is a Great program I use it all the time, it helps when I can actually save the videos I am wanting, and for tutorial videos it really helps because then I dont have to be online to watch them over and over again.
