Downloadhelper won't download certain videos

Posted

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

Downloadhelper is a great program. But there are some sites where it does not work. When you find such a site, download another way.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for Download Managers.
