Video downloading with Firefox & Real

  ElayEss 19:11 12 Jan 2009

With Firefox 2, I was able to download videos from the web to Real Player. Since upgrading to Firefox 3 I cannot do it, although Real is still configured to download and record.
Any ideas?

Dump Real, download with Orbit File Downloader using the Grab++ box. It's free and fast and very simple to use. You can line up a whole raft of downloads and start them all at once. I use this for grabing music videos and it works a treat.

Problem with Real is that it records the movie in real time so if the vid is 30 mins long then real takes 30 minutes to download it while Orbit pulls it down in a couple of minutes. I can grab around 20 vids at a time.

Thanks Joe - I'll give that a go.
