What is Video DownloadHelper?

Video DownloadHelper is a comprehensive Chrome extension designed for downloading web videos. It allows you to download and save video content to your local disk from any web page. While it supports HLS and DASH streamed videos, it also offers blacklisting domains to hide ads, controlling maximum concurrent downloads, and customizing download settings. Notably, it provides the option to convert downloading or already downloaded videos to almost any format. However, due to Google's restrictions, it can't download YouTube videos in the Chrome version.
