Have you ever been to youtube or myspace and wanted to download the video or mp3 that you are watching or listening to? Of course you have! Now I know that there are a lot of download extensions available for firefox, but I am partial to this one. It works great. The name of the extension is UnPlug.
UnPlug scans web pages and tells you where things like media players and other embedded objects are getting their data from, and displays it as a simple hyperlink: in most cases, you can then follow the simple download link to save the media file.
It doesn’t need to connect to external sites to find where media is kept – but it can do if you want it to by downloading the results from KeepVid and VideoDownloader. UnPlug will search, ask and even guess where media is on a website, presenting its results in an easy-to-use results page.
UnPlug connects with a number of other extensions, including Down Them All and NoScript.
