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.
