xpi? it doesnt work for me. Am I retarded now?

You need to have Firefox installed, it doesn't work with Internet Explorer =(

Haha yes I know. I'm slightly retarded but not that much :P
I dont have that Windows XP Install Install tool thing.

Oh, I'm sorry haha. Well, if you (left)click on "Install Now", while browsing with Firefox, an install window automatically comes up.


EDIT: Oh, I've already tried this plugin, but the videos are saved as "*.flv". It seems like you'll have to convert them. (http://forum.videohelp.com/viewtopic.php?t=259578)

I dont get it. My Riva version is completely different to the guy's version. There is no browse button, no video tab, no picture tab. wah.

okok i get it now.

I have the Riva Encoder.
But I dont get this.
I have stuff in my temp file, but it's not .flv
I guess Riva is useless for me then?

Oops, I was trying to explain how you could manage to download the video with that plugin, when my DSL crashed down >_> Well, while you're watching the video you want to download, all you have to do is click on that icon on the bottom-right corner of your Firefox browser. That way, you can save the *.flv file on your hard disk, whererver you want.

And after that, I guess you can try to convert it with Riva :)

I think it is working now :]
But I am not sure yet because Riva is weird.

Nina's problems:
1) I didnt have Firefox updated. I had another version, and with that version the VideoDownloader didnt work.
2) The Firefox downloadmanager was disabled
3) I first downloaded the Riva producer, not the encoder

And as we speak, the process successfully proceeded!!!!1111111111
Now I can die happy.

Thank you Cejus!
