How does one get NomNom to download a youtube video?


Hi, on Mint, how can I get NomNom to download a youtube video?

It needs a path from an option in "settings" and "commands" but I don't know what to type in "read youtube feeds using"?

My recommendation would be to try the browser add-on Video Download Helper.

I programmed NomNom to correct settings according to the nomnom sourceforge site, put the location to download in, I slected and put in the URLs... but NomNom says it is "fetching" but it does not go from there to an actual download. It's like a dud or misfire.

I downloaded an add-on for firefox to do this but I cannot open it. I can only find options to disable or remove it, but where is the start button?

In the upper right of your browser are tools, the one that looks like three circles (indicated in the drawing), as you can see, if you hover over it, it will show that this is for Video Download Helper. It will change color indicating it sees video that can be captured.

The second image shows it changed color and after I've clicked on it on a random YouTube video, see how it shows a menu now to allow for saving.

You may have to restart your browser after installing the add-on.
