2024-02-29 Will It used to be a lot better. As in the previous build just a week or two ago. Sites I've used it on forever, it no longer activates for or even lights up. Something as simple as downloading from DepositFiles, the final step after captcha, it would light up, let me copy the url so I could put it in a download manager. Now it just sits there dead, not reading it right. And certain other tube sites and whatnot, no longer works.

2024-02-28 CmdSpock als ze werkt is het een mooi ding, maar er zijn meer problemen met deze addon dan dat ze werkt. en ik kan begrijpen dat men sommige video's beveiligt en dat de manier van handelen eerst moet achterhaald worden, maar als ik betaal voor een licentie zou ik graag hebben dat ze werkt naar behoren en niet "SOMS"

2024-02-28 bbug was good for a while until I wanted videos that required "conversion" or recombining of video and audio. basically all of youtube. They force you to pay $28 or you get a watermark. no option to download video and audio separately. They basically do the conversion and extra watermark processing for free and then hold out their hands for $28 saying its very expensive. If it was so expensive, why'd you process and give me the watermarked files for free?
2024-02-28 Henry Requires installation of another app, also adds watermark to downloaded videos to extort money from users.
