Fix Auto Naming With Downthemall + Download Helper + Youtube

Problem

Today I discovered how to fix the automatic naming of videos that I download from youtube with downthemall + download helper. Previously I had the following choice:

  • Click the download link on downloadhelper and slowly download a correctly named video file.
  • Download with the Downthemall tool at a much faster rate, but the file will always be called "videoplayback"

Solution

Change *name* to *text* in the naming mask, as shown below:

Linux users may be interested in using the youtube-dl CLI tool instead
