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
