We come across loads of good content on the internet which we wish to download. Whether it be video, Audio or some other media file. And there is the number of tools which help us achieve our goals. Downloading embedded videos or Songs from a web page or a streaming site could be tricky given the encryption and security the sites have.
But today in this post I will give you the list of best of the Chrome Extension Plugins to download the content from a website easily. The chrome browser extensions help as download manager and will ease your task of downloading the files from the page.
The thing to remember here is a single plugin may not have all the core functionalities to download the media from all the web pages. So, I have provided Downloader manager extensions for downloading media for a particular type of site.
For example, a Chrome Extension can assist in downloading the video from FB page but could be worth useless for other sites. I have listed below all the potential plugins with the use of which you can grab the resources from various sites.
Note: Please note that DigitBin isn’t responsible for media content which you download. We request you to you the extensions for personal use only. We suggest checking first media copyright permissions before downloading video files.
