Questions & Answers:

Q: How do i install the extension?
A: Use this link to download the extension. A notification will appear after downloading to make sure you want to install it, simply agree.

Q: How do i download the file from YouTube?
A: Open the video you would like to download, take a look at the appeared download links below the video. Choose the link you like (there may be different video qualities), right-click and choose “Save link as…”

Q: How do i download the file from other video sharing services?
A: If the service is in the list of supported services, simply open the video you would like to download. You should notice the download links right below the video after the page finished loading.

Q: Why do videos on YouTube get saved as “videoplayback”?
A: That’s because YouTube outputs the files in such a way. To make sure they will be playable, upon saving add an .flv or .mp4 extension to the file (depends on the quality you chose).

Q: How do i turn off the extension if it messes up the page?
A: Locate the VideoGrab icon on top right of Chrome window. Hit it to switch to “Off”. Whenever you want to turn it on again, just hit it again and reload the page where you want the links to appear.

Q: I want to grab video from a different service, how do I do it?
A: Put a comment on this page with a name and a link to the service. It will be implemented in a few days or even quicker.

Q: How do i download from Trilulilu?
A: Trilulilu is specific in how it plays media. It doesn’t allow to view the same video multiple times in a short amount of time (like a minute or so), so if you are watching a video or listening to mp3, simply wait for a minute or two before hitting “Save Link As…”, or else you will be getting an empty saved file
