An addon that allows you to download (and convert if using premium) embedded videos playing on a website. Many features, decent UI, affordable lifetime conversion license, will work with all YouTube videos. What's not to love?

Pro Works with YouTube videos, and most other sites too
A number of "YouTube downloaders" will only work with YouTube. Others (maybe the same ones!) no longer work with YouTube after changes were made in the YouTube interface and encryption. But VDH just keeps on working!
Pro Rarely fails to "see" and download video and audio streams
Many similar tools will often fail to download certain video formats or DRM protected streams. I would say that VDH fails to download 5% or less of video streams.
Pro Conversion license is very affordable ($15 lifetime license)
Pro Automatic conversion rules are very handy
I hate downloading videos that I then have to convert with this tool or that in order to get the MP3 file I am ultimately after. Having VDH do it for me helps save a lot of time and headache.
Con UI for advanced features is a little hard to navigate.
I've see many UIs that were much worse though
