I have just added the DownloadHelper add-on to iceweasel for downloading YouTube (or any other) video clips.

Anyone with any experience?

Thanks

WORKING. Just downloaded and played. flv file in Kafeine.

Which converter is preferred- ffmpeg or **removed**?
Thanks.

EDIT: Well, the replaced(automatically) word 'removed' says all about the converter to be used.

you can use youtube-dl to download, without browser/plugin.
# apt-get install youtube-dl

also, you can view youtube video with minitube without browser/plugin:
# apt-get install minitube
