I think so. You can also try the addon on Mozilla Addons.

Which sites do you need from ViewTube+, some may not be working anymore.

hello sebaro,

i cannot install viewtube on older mac anymore.
it uses tenfourfox (built on firefox engine)
when i try to install via greasemonkey it says
Error downloading URL:
https://raw.gihub....

Server returned 404 not found.


when i try to install from Mozilla Add-ones it does not allow me apparently because i have not newer firefox

The add-on downloaded from Mozilla-addones could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt.

You're trying to install viewtube.png not viewtube.user.js, use the link above.

What browser do you have? The extension is for Firefox 57+ only.
tenfourfox

i use tenfourfox 17, it is based on firefox
it loads for a second normally as it did before, then it switches to this error.
it does this also when using the links

For older:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sebaro/viewtube/master/viewtube.user.js
http://sebaro.pro/viewtube/viewtube.user.js

i am thinking that those get blocked somehow by greasemonkey.
can you help me to install those manually?

besides, i found ninjakit for safari 5 which is excellent!

For GM 4+ click "New user script..." from its menu, then paste the script's content there.

hello sebaro,

could install finally also on tenfourfox by using the latest tenfourfox (which is based on ff45) and the according version of greasmonkey.
as plugins are only possible until tenfourfox (ttf) 17, i had to use nevertheless that version , and downgrade greasemonkey . fortunately the in the process , the viewtube script did not get deleted. so i am assuming this error is somehow connected to the used greasemonkey for ttf17 which is greasemonkey 1.10+ signed.
would like to add for using plugins on tenfourfox 17, on has to enable them first in about:config then sarch for plugins and toggle to true.

The installation issue was caused by the missing viewtube,png image, I've readded it to fix this.

Would it be possibile to enable download from Dramafever as well?

I think this site uses HLS/M3U8 only. I can get the stream but you'll have to use another tool for downloading, like ffmpeg.
