Terminology
Addons Plugins and Extensions


Plugins are external pieces of software that work in tandem with certain programs to offer additional function. Eg, flash player is a plugin because flash is not a program installed in your browser; it is a bit of software installed separately which then works with the application to render flash content. Similarly many media players have plugins which work with the application to support certain file formats such that they can be played in the application. So in your question, watching a youtube flash video would require a plugin.

Add-ons and extensions in applications are the same thing. Addons are small pieces of software installed to work WITHIN the application to allow it to perform certain additional functionalities and features not already available in the standard application
