Most add-ons for Firefox that allow a user to download videos from the popular video hosting website offer to download one video at a time. This is most of the time the active video on the page. Some video downloaders even have the requirement to play the video for at least a second to recognize it before they offer the video download.
Bulk Youtube Downloader offers a different approach. The Firefox add-on can be used to snap all links that lead to Youtube videos from a specific page on the website. This works perfectly for instance on the Youtube homepage, channels, playlists and single video pages where not only the video that can be played but also the related videos are picked up.
The Youtube video page can be scanned by either right-clicking on the page and selecting the Bulk Youtube Video Downloader context menu entry or by running the add-on from the Tools menu in the Firefox web browser.
The add-on displays all Youtube videos in its interface. The configuration of the download takes place on the first screen. The user can select the videos to download by using the mouse or selecting them all with CTRL A. The video downloader will by default download the high quality versions of the videos if available and save them as FLV. Both of these options can be changed to download mp4 videos instead if available and to not download the hq versions if available.
The download destination can be selected and filters to filter out some of the videos. A click on the start button transfers all selected videos to the download queue of the web browser from where they will be downloaded to the local computer system.
Bulk Youtube video downloader displays a log window at this stage detailing failed and successful requests to queue the selected videos for download.
The Firefox add-on is especially useful for downloading playlists from Youtube but can also come in handy for channels and other themed video pages.
