A release of the new version 2.4.7.36 of AVD for Mozilla Firefox

Happy to announce that we've released a new version of AVD for Mozilla Firefox, 2.4.7.36. Now AVD supports the following video formats: flv, mp4, mkv, webm, mpg. The downloaded video will be saved in the video format suggested by the website you are downloading from. For instance YouTube has videos in three formats: mp4, mkv, and webm. So, a downloaded video from YouTube will have one of the mentioned formats. It depends on the settings of the video site, not AVD.  

We have improved AVD Player in the new version 2.4.7.36. All the downloaded files will appear in your AVD Player and of course will be playable from there except for video files in mkv format. You will yet have to use a third-party player for a playback of these videos. We recommend using VLC, which can be installed here.
If you would like to change the format of the downloaded video file, do not hesitate to use Ant Converter.
Ant.com Team wishes you a nice day, keep downloading your favorite videos with AVD ;)

    Well this is disappointing!  I shall now have to find another video downloader when I was enjoying the speed and efficiency of Ant compared to others I have used in the past.

     

      I don't WANT the website I am downloading from to decide the format - I don't WANT to download in MKV when I used to download in my preferred format, MP4, without having to have special players, or convert the file afterwards.

    All I can say is, broke a perfectly good product which didn't need fixing IMHO

    Hello Sami Finch, 

    We had in enforce changes to AVD due to the change of the way of streaming videos of some video sites, like YouTube. The majority of downloaded videos yet remain MP4. So maybe before you switch you could see how AVD works for you now. 

    We are sorry for the inconvenience caused anyway and hope AVD users understand the adjustments we had to do.

    Regards,

    This add-on doesn't work on Dailymotion any more. Here is a link to test: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3qvqek_dead-set-season-1-episode-1-outbreak_tv

    I agree with Sami.  The switch from MP4 to WEBM makes this product useless to me.
