Downloading YouTube via Real Player

  Yimbo 11:18 17 Jun 2014

I've always been able to download music etc using Real Player Plus, but recently I find that RP tells me "unable to download this file".

Any ideas as to what might be causing this? I have Windows 8.1

Some files due to copywrite are blocked from being downloaded it does not matter what program you use.

Real Player have migrated this service to their Cloud Based Version.

However I use YTD Video Downloader and have done for years even before it changed it's name. Beware the offer of Chrome from that Download Site, otherwise its completely free.

BRYNIT - - I take the point re copyright - but I'm not trying to download any different music etc than before. I used to get the "unable to download" message very occasionally, but now it seems pretty well all the time.

wee eddie - - I'll have a go with the downloader you have been using - - though it's the Cloud based version of RP that I have.

Thanks for the input folks!

In which case, Google is your friend

Yimbo I realise that you may not be downloading "any different music etc than before" but some may be, without your knowledge have a copywrite. The people that upload to places like Youtub can and sometimes do prevent the video etc from being downloaded by other people.
