It looks like Microsoft's Edge extension program is starting to pick up steam. After last week's release of GetThemAll and Enhancer for YouTube another popular extension is now ready for the masses.
Video Download Professional for Edge – which is ported over from Chrome and has amassed 136,322 reviews – is now ready to grab videos from YouTube, Vimeo and more.
From the app description:
Easily download videos from YouTube and numerous other sites
Download and save videos playing on a website to hard disk
Add videos easily to your video list. There you have quick access to the videos, and you can play them at any time, without having to return to the original web page. You also have the option to play the videos in any size (currently available at selected video providers like YouTube and Vimeo)
You will need to restart Edge after you download, install, and enable Video Download Professional for it to kick in, at least we did on our PC.
Heading to YouTube and Vimeo we were successfully able to see the download arrow turn green, offering up the various resolutions, formats, and file sizes to grab. We had no issue capturing Microsoft's Surface Laptop intro video in our test making this a potentially top-rated app.
We should note that some resolutions are not supported as the company tries to upsell you to its stand-alone "ultimate" Windows 10 app, which starts at $9.99, but we'll take what we can get for free.
Grab Video Download Professional for Edge in the Store and let us know what you think. As always, leave a review for the app in the Store too to help the developer.
