Na atualização 4.0.1, apareceu problemas com os botões que não funcionam, e quando o texto é grande, está estourando o tamanho da tela.

This is by far the best media extractor I've used. A lot of them can get wonky or target the wrong media while detecting potential downloads, but this worked flawlessly on even the most obscure of sites.
