Most of us had downloaded videos from video hosting websites like Youtube, Metacafe etc. Some of us would have used Firefox extensions or stand alone download managers for downloading. My personal experience with them is that they don’t work on all videos on all websites.
With latest release of RealPlayer (free download) that problem is solved. The Real player 11 Gold installer gives an option to include Download buttons in your favorite browser when you visit any site containing a video.
The button appears on top right corner of the video. When you click it, it downloads the video like a charm. No hassle.The following snapshot was taken on Firefox browser.
Though I don’t use Real player as a full time media player, I will not uninstall it just for this feature. And If you are interested in video shown in the snapshot, go here.
