View Full Version : [ubuntu] Download YouTube with Better YouTube addon

August 21st, 2008, 04:02 PM
I just downloaded the "Better YouTube" Firefox addon from Lifehacker.


I want to download a movie via the "download this movie" link under the movie at YouTube. When I click, a window with Flashload pops up, and after a few seconds the site reloads and Totem starts to play the movie before I have any chance to click on any of the download links.

How do I disable this auto play of flv content from "totem-plugin-viewer 2.22.1"? I use Firefox 3 and Ubuntu 8.04.

You should be able to set this in Firefox. Go to menu>edit>preferences>applications and change the settings.

I've already been there and I can't find anything about either Totem or the Flv format that solves my problem.
