RealDownloader is an application developed to download clips from online video sharing services.
As compared to other similar apps that require users to provide the video URL before starting a new download, RealDownloader integrates into your browser and takes care of everything.
Every time you load a new video, RealDownloader shows a small button at the top of each clip, giving you the option to start a new download.
Compatible with most browsers on the Internet, including Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, RealDownloader is more like a browser plugin, although users can also manage the downloaded videos separately via a dedicated window.
Files are saved to FLV format on the local disks, with downloads usually going blazing fast. This however also depends on your Internet connection and video size.
There are a few settings available too, with RealDownloader giving you the option to convert the downloaded clips to a wide array of formats. It comes with predefined profiles for plenty of devices, including Apple iPhones, mobile phones, portable media players or TV connected devices.
RealDownloader doesn’t affect system performance in any way, running smoothly on all Windows versions, obviously without requiring administrator privileges.
All in all, RealDownloader is a handy piece of software, that’s for sure, and probably the best thing about is the browser integration. It can keep an eye on the videos you load in your browser and take control of the download task all by itself. All you need to do is to press the download button.
