Ant Video Downloader for Firefox

Download videos from Firefox
Ant Video Downloader for Firefox allows you to download video clips from multiple websites and store them on your computer. It is designed to detect the movies embedded in the current web page and download them to a specified location with one click.

If you do not have a permanent Internet connection and want to save the videos on your computer, you should think twice before installing complex applications. This Firefox add-on can handle this task easily, with minimum intervention from the user.

The extension automatically detects the downloadable files as soon as you load the page that contains the video and start the playback. If the movie can be downloaded, a discrete animation can be noticed on the address bar button.

You only need to press the button in order to grab the video and save it to the default downloads folder. If the page includes multiple files, the menu displays the list of the names and their size in order to select the one that you need to download.

The menu also provides access to the video player and the extension preferences. The player includes only basic features but is essential if you want to watch the video immediately and view the download history. You can change the location of the files and enable the toolbar notifications from the Preferences window.

Although most users might prefer the default display mode, the add-on provides you with two additional options. The toolbar mode displays all the available commands and the search field but takes more space in the interface while the add-on bar mode minimizes the used window space by showing only the download and player buttons..

Overall, the Ant Video Downloader proved to be a useful tool for detecting and downloading movie clips. It supports most video-sharing platforms and requires minimal configuration for grabbing the video files.
