Download Movies and Videos for Free

25 02 2008

When Real Networks released the latest iteration of their once-popular Real Player, they might’ve just struck the right notes for some users. One of them being the Ninja of course because it allows me to download and play flash-based videos whenever I want, lag-free. I’ve known this for a while but didn’t post this up thinking this was public knowledge. Apparently, this isn’t the case according to some people I’ve talked to.

First make sure you have the latest Real Player on your computer. If you’re not sure, you can download and install it from their website.

Launch <insert your favorite online video website like YouTube etc> and when you place your cursor over the video, you will see a tool bar pop-up on the top. The last option should say …

The FLV (Flash Video) file will most likely be stored by default under “My DocumentsMy VideosRealPlayer Downloads“. A reminder that the video has to be flash-based.

Once the download is complete, you can “OPEN” the video and watch it on the brand new Real Player whenever you want regardless of your internet connection cuz it’s stored on your hard drive in a sub-folder located within My Videos. The files will all have the FLV extension but if you don’t have the box unchecked to “Hide Extensions for Known File Types”, all you’ll see are the blue real player icons.

UPDATE 09/07/08: When you go to real.com and download the latest Real Player (Real Player 11 in my case), make sure to check the “agent” option during installation. This enables you to download flash videos from websites using a download agent window. Click on the agent window and you get a list of all the flash videos you could potentially download.
