The one that I modified still works just fine for me.
Try this:
1) Uninstall whatever version you're currently using ('Tools' > 'Add-ons' > 'Extensions' > 'Flash and Video Download' > 'Remove').
2) IMPORTANT: Restart Pale Moon.
3) Install the modified v1.80 build.
Seems the down load is missing. The link says it's not there anymore.

Well, the v1.80 mod works just fine for me, regardless to which player I'm using (HTML5 or Flash).
Once in a while it seems that it doesn't work, but reloading the page fixes it right away.
You haven't let it auto-update to v1.81 by any chance?

Found this user review @ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... and-video/ :

Could that be the reason?..
It would explain why it works for me, cuz I never log on to YouTube.

Nope it's working only when I logged out. Youtube maybe made some changes. So we must wait for new version of this addon.

EDIT:
v1.82 has been released.
I modified it and gave it a try..
Unfortunately, it sufferes from the same problem as v1.81:
It works on YouTube, but completely fails to detect videos on some other sites.

Ech - no, it DOESN'T.
Same old story - YouTube only, not much else.

So it does not work.

Yeah, v1.80 is the last version that works with other sites.
..but unfortunately, this build is also plagued by 0-byte downloads at YouTube.

My prefered solution:
Use 'Download YouTube Videos as MP4' for YouTube videos:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... d-youtube/

..and use the modified v1.80 build of 'Download Flash & Video' for other sites:

Yes, that's what I did. Thank you for the 1.80.
I just feared you gave up trying to patch the next versions.

No, I've actually "patched" all of them, but they've all turned out to be useless.
Judging from the changelog, the last two versions (v1.83 and v1.84) doesn't even contain any real changes..
Just code optimizations.

I saw that it's in the pending list on the Pale Moon addons compatibility page. Does that mean someone is working on making it compatible or that we hope one day the developer will realize Pale Moon exists?

I don't think so.
Several Pale Moon users (including you :)) has posted comments @ addons.mozilla.org, pointing out the problem.
Also, I've tried contacting the developer(s) on e-mail, linking to this thread.
I've never gotten any kind of response from them.

I'm sure I'm repeating myself, but for most uses, FlashGot (patched for PM here: http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php ... 534#p82603 ) does the same thing.
You have a 720p limit on YouTube, but you can download the DASH components and remux them yourself.
I use it 90% of the time and for vids higher than 720p I use Jdownloader2. Considering the higher rez files are bigger, it's nice to have them resume-able.

I used to use FlashGot with Firefox a long time ago, but you need a separate downloader.
Oops, just installed it and it can use the builtin downloader, so i'll give it a try.
