I was trying to install the video downloader in chrome in “developer mode” and I received an error message that the manifest file was unreadable. Please help.

if you get the warning on secure sites (https) and it crosses the https url out, just ignore it, it means nothing, As long as when you start Chrome, you just cancel the warning message about “insecure scripts”, that is caused by the video downloader in developer mode. It’s better than not having the superb extension at all, so just ignore it. everything works fine, just ignore the messages and enjoy the extension.

Drag and dropped ext from this site with developer moded checked…looked good then after a few minutes chrome? flashed a box saying not approved. Tried checking unchecking dev box, no change, it would not let me check the use box for the ext. Used to work great so I think google is making their own fix to prevent its uses. Any thoughts…did a reinstall etc, repeatable events. Thanks
