DownloadHelper is a tool for web content extraction. Its purpose is to capture video, audio, and image files from many sites.
Just surf the Web as you are used to, when DownloadHelper detects it can do something for you, the icon gets animated and a menu allows you to download files by simply clicking an item
For instance, if you go to a YouTube page, you'll be able to download the video directly on your file system. It also works with MySpace, Google videos, DailyMotion, Porkolt, iFilm, DreamHost and others. You can even setup the extension to automatically convert the downloaded movies to your preferred video format.
When you are on a page containing links to images or movies, you can download some or all of them at once. Moving the mouse over the items in the menu will highlights the links directly in the page to make sure they are the ones you want to pick up.
DownloadHelper also allows you to download files one by one, so that you keep bandwidth to surf for other stuff to download.

Personally I prefer to use YouTube 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
Better than to download any plugin or malware that will load crap on your computer. I'd recommend Acethinker Video Downloader (https://acethinker.com/online-downloader ) Online, it's a free web-based application, you don't have to download or install anything, works for youtube, vimeo, dailymotion and many more!

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.
Going to the cache folder doesn't work in W8.X as the Temporary Files folder is hidden and not accessible.
You might be wondering why you should use DownloadHelper instead some other generic web media ripper out there (there are hundreds of them...). Well, I'll tell you why! :P
DownloadHelper lets you download Youtube videos at HD quality. If a video can play at 1080p, then you can download it at 1080p. A lot of Youtube downloaders are still stuck at an archaic 480p, which some people will find acceptable. But the way I see it, if you're going to download a video, you might as well be able to watch it in full HD glory. Besides, DownloadHelper isn't limited to just Youtube- it works with an incredible number of other sites, too. I particularly like its ability to rip music from Pandora, Rhapsody, and similar services (Grooveshark doesn't work). It's an easy and safe way to get free music.
Also, as a Firefox addon, DownloadHelper is built right into your browser. That makes downloading a much faster, smoother process than a web-based downloader (e.g. KeepVid), or a downloader running on a separate program in Windows (i.e. Orbit Downloader).
Anyways, to sum things up, I recommend DownloadHelper because it lets you download high quality videos, it's not limited to just Youtube, and it's convenient and easy to use.
A great tool for fetching media in firefox, as the other commentators have said. Allowing for you-tube videos, and others, to be saved for re-watching, et cetera.
Best tool for grabbing media from Firefox.
But media musst be streamed, that's the only disadvantage.
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.
Total Video Downloader for Mac is a nice alternativeto
