Real Player "download this video" not working with Dailymotion [Closed]

As of last weekend I have not been able to download any videos from Dailymotion. Real Player is properly configured, and the "Download this video" option shows whenever a video is playing, in many sites, such as Youtube, and including Dailymotion. However, the download works with all the sites I've tried except for Dailymotion - and with the latter it had worked until last week.
When I watch a video in Dailymotion and click on "Download this video", it seems to download it, even showing the progress bar. However, no matter how long the video is, the window indicates a length of 0,3 to 0,6 Mb, the "download" finishes in a couple of seconds, and of course, nothing has really been downloaded.
As far as I know, nothing has changed since last week, when downloading from Dailymotion worked.
Do you have any idea what may be happening?
Thank you very much!

Hi, Zohaib.

Thanks for your tip. I did as you said (removed RealPlayer from the Control Panel, download RP and installed it again) but things remained the same. Even after turning off the PC, and then back on again, there's no way I can download videos from Dailymotion. The problem seems to be with Dailymotion, because video download from, say, Youtube and other sites, keeps working like before.
