If this didn't work for you, follow these Additional Steps: (STEP 1)
- Open Realplayer
- Press Alt
- Select Preferences
- At the bottom of the list select Download&Recording
- Then check the box beside "Enable Web Download&Recording"
- Then check the box beside "Only on mouse-over"
- Press OK
- Restart Google Chrome
IMPORTANT NOTE: For the ones the ones that followed the steps above, found that the download option was already enabled... I recommend disabling the download option first and Press OK. And then re-follow the steps as stated.
If it still doesn't work, try this one: (STEP 2)
- Open Google Chrome
- Type this in your Adress Bar:
- Then enable the "Realplayer Downloader" plugin
Tip 1: Make sure you got the LATEST version of RealPlayer and Google Chrome Installed. Because older versions may prevent this solution to work.
Tip 2: In some cases it's required to right click the flash video and choose "Download This Video To RealPlayer" via the menu
Tip 3: In other cases it's required to refresh the page (press F5) for the button to show up.
Fact: RealPlayer doesn't work with 64-bit browsers. This is no problem for chrome users yet, because chrome only has been released as a 32-bit version, which runs fine on 64 bit computers.
Why is the Flash in Google Chrome Different?
Google Chrome uses a sandboxed version of Flash and they claim that it makes malware unable to attach to Flash. But it also makes Innocent software like Realplayer unable to attach.
both Chrome and Youtube are owned by Google, so do the math...
- Google Chrome 10.0.684.204
- Real Player 184.108.40.2063 (Downloader Plugin V 1.3)
- Windows 7 (Dutch, in case you were wondering)
- Open RealPlayer
- Press Alt
- File : Open
- Enter URL
- Download video
I hope this helps :)
