RealPlayer 11: Enable Web Downloading to Grab Internet Videos

Posted June 26, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Internet

The new RealPlayer makes it easy to download and play videos you view in your web browser, such as those from YouTube. However, if you didn’t opt for the “Download this Video” button to appear in your browser during the installation of RealPlayer, you won’t have this great option. No worries though, simply follow these steps to enable the functionality:

1. Open RealPlayer.

2. Click Tools and select Preferences.

3. Select Download & Recording from the left pane.

4. Check the Enable Web Downloading & Recording checkbox.

5. Select how you want the Download this Video button to appear (or not). Options are On page load after a user specified number of seconds, Only on mouse-over, or Don’t show (download is only accessible from right-click).

6. Click OK.

Now you can start downloading video!
