How to use RealPlayer to download online videos

I used RealPlayer for long time now, and I am using iTune for my kid’s iPod and he loves it, so now I am getting used to iTune. However, with new RealPlayer you can do a video download at a mouse click. I had used this features for longggggg time. I found I can’t use RealPlayer to download one video from Youtube in my office computer this morning, so I realize it’s missing on it. As far as of I know, Real Player is the easiest way to save and download videos from internet.

Download and install RealPlayer

you can download it from RealPlayer and installation is simple and by just following the instructions but make sure you have Download This Video option enabled.

Now, when you watch any online video and if you like it and want to keep a local copy for offline access, then you just move your mouse over the video, you will see a RealPlayer’s “Download this video” button over the video. Click the button and it starts RealPlayer Download & Recording Manager and saves the video in your download library. You can view all downloads from View My Library.

To convert to any other formats of your videos, you can continue on reading another article of mine “How to make a 3GP mobile video” using SUPER, a free video converter for many different video types
