As soon as you install Flash Video Downloader plugin, new buttons depicting blue arrows will appear on top and bottom panels of your Mozilla Firefox Internet browser.
You will be able to download the video with the help of these buttons.
Why do some videos have an inscription saying Convert instead of Download and I'm offered to download a module?
Firefox, starting from version 57, changed the API, and now the old methods of downloading FullHD videos and Live Streams no longer work. We were compelled to create a special separate module processing video fragments and joining them together.
There is no need to download this module if you are not planning to download FullHD videos or Live Streams.
Hmm… And what if this module contains viruses?
Before downloading, you are welcome to run your antivirus. The module also gets checked by Mozilla editors.
Another important aspect to mention is that the module file is signed with the company's special key.
How to install the module?
You just need to download the module from the site and run it. Further installation process is the same as for any other program. Once the installation is completed, restart your Firefox browser. After that, you can download the videos.
Can I delete the module after installing it?
Yes, the module can be deleted just like any other program.

Why do I get a DOS window when downloading a video?
Some websites may feed video and audio as two different files and so those have to be joined in advance. You need FFMPEG for that. That's exactly what you see launching (to join the files) after the download is initiated.
The video is playing, but the button remains red. Why can that be?
In all likelihood, this is a licensed video that can't be downloaded from the site, or there are technical restrictions (for instance, the RTMP format may be used).
