I'm running Firefox 126.96.36.199 . . and installed the video downloader
extension. I have pretty much given up on the major broadcasters, and
their media consolidation propaganda generating role in the U.S. BBC,
France 24, Iran's Press TV, Al-Jazeerha, IHT, etc. aren't too bad for
getting world news. Not sure how to download and view their videos,
though. I have really low speeds on my DSL service here in the middle
of the Iowa corn fields. Would be nice to be able to download and play
as files. Any suggestions?
