Change the way videos download so downloading all is not so cumbersome

When select all is used and download is pressed, the website starts downloading every video individually. 

It would be much less tedious if the website would pack the videos into a zip or something so only one file is downloaded instead of possibly hundreds of them.

 

I request this because if you are using not chrome and do not have it set to ask you where to save everytime if you are, it opens a download dialogue for every single video causing you to have to click save as many times as videos.  The only way around this is to use chrome and just let it download each one without asking where to save it.  If you use edge, ie, or firefox it will ask you where to save each file probably causing the browser to crash or you will have to click save, ALOT.  If you use chrome and it opens that many dialogues, it will crash chrome.

 

So, to sum up, to get around this, use chrome and don't set it to ask you each time, which is how every other browser works instead of forcing you to always download to the same folder or change the setting every time.
