RFE: FlashGot Media Down Manager Select by Icon

RFE: FlashGot Media Down Manager Selection via the FlashGot Media Icon


There are enough times that I switch the Download Manager used by FlashGot Media, that having the choice accessible from the FlashGot Media icon would be beneficial.

Suppose it could be above (or below) 'Clear', & expandable like the way Youtube's 'Available formats' expands.

That would make it far easier, quicker, then Options | More Options | FlashGot Media, then selecting via the dropdown.

Agreed... or rather, the ability to create customized icons.

I use this to launch videos in MPCHC, or alternatively download them. I'd like to be able to choose one or the other easily...


Side note- left clicking on the icon downloads all detected video streams- aka every resolution available of a youtube stream. When is this useful, ever? It should default to just the largest file or something. An accidental click launches my video player 50 different times. Or spams the built in download manager.

> left clicking on the icon downloads all detected video streams

That is the expected behavior.
Though in the case of Youtube, since it does automatically enumerate everything to be found, perhaps that should be changed.

It also detects and will automatically download via left click every point at which you seeked through the video, again creating a huge number of unexpected prompts.

I'm aware that it is expected behavior, I just can't fathom as to *why* it was programmed this way.

Way back when I mentioned, "Default FlashGot & Media Downloaders Are Different?", so I would always go in & manually set (the first time) FlashGot Media to my wanted download manager.

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7409

When I've wanted to change the downloader used by FlashGot Media, I've gone into Options to change the downloader by the dropdown.

What I didn't realize until recently is that anytime you change the download manager from the Context Menu | FlashGot Options, it changes it for both regular FlashGot operations & also the FlashGot Media operations.

So what I wanted in this RFE has always been there, just never realized it.
