There are many websites that let you watch videos, but that don't let you download it for later viewing. Even if there is a download option, most of the time it requires you to pay some amount of money. Luckily for Mozilla Firefox users, there is a way to download the videos you stream for free.
As the title says, check if you have Mozilla Firefox installed on your PC. If you have it, then proceed to the next step.If not, you can download it for free here.
Step 1 Download the Add-On (Extension)
There are many different add-ons in Mozilla Firefox, which you can check here. Although there are many "video grabber" add-ons for Firefox, I prefer NetVideoHunter because it's simple and easy to use and also much efficient than others, in my opinion. To download it, you can search for it at the Firefox add-ons site, or you can go directly to NetVideoHunter's site here.
Note:NetVideoHunter is FREE to download.
Step 2 Stream Any Video from Any Website
After you've downloaded and installed the extension, you can now use it. Go to any website that has videos you can view for free, like YouTube, and watch any video. You don't need to actually watch the video, just wait for it to load or just wait for the NetVideoHunter's logo to blink, which is in the left of the address bar (URL bar).
Step 3 Download the Video
After NetVideoHunter's logo has blinked, you must click it. Once you've clicked it, it will open a new window which will look something like this:
You can click the "Play" button if you want to check if that's the video you want to download, and once you've checked it, you can now press "Download" to download it.
- There are some videos that NetVideoHunter can't grab, but I don't know if it is fixed in the latest version.
