Sorry.
You'll have to use wget and ffmpeg to download and convert.
It's that or the other option.

There should be an addon to firefox for that.

Is there a site with instructions on using this option?

[later...]

Never mind. I took your advice and checked the firefox addons, and found DownloadHelper, which works. So, thanks, another one solved.
