Download Helper

In Mozilla Firefox, there is an Add-On called Download Helper that you can use to download videos or flash video content. This is especially helpful for when you find an online video you want to use for a class but do not want to risk internet connectivity issues or inappropriate ad content.

In the orange Firefox menu, select Add-ons and search “Download Helper”.  

Choose video DownloadHelper  and click Install. You will need to restart Firefox.

When you go to a site with a video (or flash content) that is available for download, the DownloadHelper icon will spin in the address bar. It will also show up beside the video title.

A menu pops up when you click on the icon next to the video. You can download and convert the file into a number of formats. Choose your format and download to your computer or server.

If you plan on inserting the video into a SMART notebook, make sure you download the file as a “.flv”

In the next blog post, we will show you how to insert the video content you’ve downloaded into your favorite presentation software.
