free youtube downloader browser plugin for windows 10

hi, my 65-yr old mom likes to download youtube videos and convert them to mp3 to listen

her laptop is windows8 and she uses IE for browsing. i installed freemake's youtube downloader plugins and things have been sailing smooth for her

however, i noticed that freemake's plugins stop working in my windows10 laptop in both IE/edge and firefox. i wonder if it is a OS compatibility issue, but this is holding me from upgrading her laptop to windows10

i am free to ditch the freemake plugins if there is another alternative that works just the same.....i am open to recommendations for any FREE youtube downloader plugins that will work in a windows10 environment, preferably in IE/edge. TIA

Someone made a gui version as well, I haven't tested it however: http://mrs0m30n3.github.io/youtube-dl-gui/
Basically this.
Someone wanted an entire channel (1500 "videos") made into MP3s.
Took one CLI entry to download the videos and convert to MP3 via new file.
