Hi, guys,

I am wondering whether we still can directly download the videos from YouTube by IE such as IE 10 or 11? Or we need to install some special software for downloading?

Anyone has the same query???

Long tutorial short:

1) Use Web Explorer to go to https://mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/new/. Select the option appropriate for your OS and architecture.

2) Install Firefox then decommission Internet Exploiter. Purge all references to the latter from your computer, your mind and your life. Permanently.

3) Start Firefox then go to https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/a...ownloadhelper/ to get the excellent "Video Downloadhelper" plugin that I've been using for many years (since version ~2.5ish, or so).

4) Install the plugin (XPI file) to Firefox.

5) Restart Firefox, head to Youtube and have a field day.

There.

NOTE: In recent years, Youtube has developed this strange behaviour wherein some video files can't be downloaded directly (the little "triangle-in-red-rectangle" icon in Downloadhelper's "Media" flyout menu). The "network download" function of Downloadhelper (the two little vertical lines with the red arrow through them) can be used to get around this problem. In some other video hosting sites, this is the only way to download content.

I like Firefox's Video Downloadhelper. It can capture most videos played in Firefox.

LOL, I endorse this suggestion!

For downloading YouTube videos, I personally prefer the add-on named Download YouTube Videos as MP4. It is very easy to use, basically adding a download button right on the YouTube page, next to some other buttons below the player.
Another great add-on to get is Ghostery. It greatly reduces the amount of obtrusive ads, tracking, and malware on sites, in addition to speeding up webpage loading.
