I can't use Realplayer to download now [Solved/Closed]

Ask a question susan_cd - Last answered on Oct 12, 2012 at 12:47 PM by Me

When I visited websites showing video clips, I used to just place the cursor over the video & Realplayer would allow me to save the clip to my hard drive.

Now for some reason I can't, even tho in Realplayer's preferences I set it to "show the Download this video button" on mouse-over.

Any suggestions or solutions?

you can access the download button else where.. IDK why sometimes it doesn't show like if its adobe flash.. But heres how to access the DL button IN REALPLAYER BROWSER

1) Open Realplayer
2) In the top right corner should be a search button.. type anything in there and press enter
3) An address bar should show up.. you can just copy and paste the WEB URL aka
into that
4) Go to the video and VOILA the button is there.. or just right click video and see if you get the button

NOTE: GOOGLE CHROME won't let me download Youtube Videos anymore with realplayer

You go to chrome://plugins/ and disable all of the flash things except for the bottom one

Does not work. Bluster or too complicated.

RealPlayer always worked for me with Google Chrome until the last Adobe Flash update. That messed it up and I can't come up with a fix for it.
If I want to download a video I have to do it using Internet Explorer, which still works.

It happens sometimes when you install something new or use Windows Update.

Your best option would be to uninstall real player and install it again by downloading it from the website:
