go to Realplayer - File -> open and paste the youtube URL in the box. hit OK. you will see the youtube page in Realplayer and it will allow you to download using RP's download option.

i have a solution, follow what I say the video which you want to play,
2.then just type the word "kick" into the address bar just before Youtube, have the address "",
instead of this link just type 'kick' in front of youtube and press enter, there will appear a new window with the same video then just click on the download link tour download will be start

there is a other way just go to the video and click to the uploader name and find that video from there and try to download that you must be able to download the video

Real have said that because of YouTube's update, there is a problem downloading videos from Youtube.

The normal pages ARE effected

For example:


You can download by going to the uploaders channel and selecting the video.
BUT you get all weird code in the title and in the source link.

Real have said they are fixing it, but in the support, they wont say when its comming out.

Here's the easiest proven method to capture those videos that RealPlayer Downloader no longer will download. First, download Youtube Downloader HD (yep, it's free). Run the program, set your default download sites, etc. Next go to the video you are having difficulty with and start to run it. As it's running right click on the video. One of your choices will be "copy video URL at current time". Click on that and paste it into the Video URL space in Youtube Downloader HD. Then on the lower right corner click on Download. Works every time.

its issue from youtube itself I guess
and I would advise you all to use internet download manager to download FLV wherever it is,youtube or anyother video anywhere.
