Can anyone make download helper http://www.downloadhelper.net/ work with KM? Download helper is a FF extension which lets you grab the embedded video from a webpage (without needing to use an external site like keepvid), and works on nearly all sites (unlike keepvid, which only works with specific sites.

Orbit downloader will work with K-Meleon. It has a function grab++ that does work with K-Meleon. It sniffs out musik and/or video that You can download with the download functionality.

A K-Meleon extension that improved handling with K-Meleon exists.

- I download videos and mp3 from myspace with Orbit.

p. s. I will however have a look whether Your tool could be compatible with/supports K-Meleon. BTW. The owner of the tool must have created/designed Download helper compatible.

Only Download Helper:

dwhelper_preferences{
$OpenURL="chrome://dwhelper/content/preferences.xul"; &OpenURL_InNewWindow;
}

dwhelper_report{
$OpenURL="chrome://dwhelper/content/report.xul"; &OpenURL_InNewWindow;
}

dwhelper_sites{
$OpenURL="chrome://dwhelper/content/sites.xul"; &OpenURL_InNewWindow;
}

work.

The others cause error with things like:

Fehler: Components.classes['@mozilla.org/extensions/manager;1'] has no
properties
Quelldatei: chrome://dwhelper/content/dwhutil.js
Zeile: 269

Means that we do not have that Firefox Function at all

Fehler: DWHelper_popupShowing is not defined
Quelldatei: chrome://dwhelper/content/dwhelper.js
Zeile: 265

This is IMHO a basic chrome functions from Firefox. We simply do not have that.

Or tells You that it will not convert Location.toString because calling that method has been denied. No idea what that is means sad smiley

Gentlemen,

May i recall you that DownloadHelper is not an open-source product.

You cannot just pick-up the code and modify it for your own needs.

@ Mig, Thx for the reminder/info
mfG guenter

p. s. The code snippets I posted are K-Meleon native code. They are the native callers for XUL objects. They are shapped in the same fashion as those that point at the before-mentioned errors or incompatibilties. My callers do not alter DownloadHelper in any way but call up its XUL functions.

BTW. I did not intend to fix errors/incompatibilties in Commercial (nor none Open Source) projects to make them usable - that is up to the respective authors.

That is their job either 4 credit or business.

Mig- This isn't about modifying download helper, it's about getting it to install/function on KM. Many FF extensions do work on KM, but they require some minor adaptations. Usually in the form of manually extracting/installing the files, and adding KM menu entries by hand. That is what I was asking about.

All right, then you have my permission (i'm the owner and developer of the extension) to adapt the code for KM.

If you can keep the compatibility with Firefox and Flock, i would be glad to integrate your changes into the main line - you will of course have the credits for your work.

Please contact DownloadHelper support if you need to.
