    Realplayer downloader

    Ive just moved to Ubuntu today. Got all the drivers in order, got my machine into the workgroup and all my permissions and everything are sorted.

    However the one problem, and believe me this is a problem, I installed realplayer but it doesnt seem to download online videos... in Windows, realplayer does this very painfree (in the top right hand corner of the video a small box pops up which you click on).... If it was only youtube vids I would have nothing to worry about. But I need to get videos from literally hundreds of different sites.

    Can anybody recommend a good replacment, or even how to get realplayer to work like the windows version. I tried wine. Its not working. And I know its not me because I successfully installed a few other programs with it earlier.

    Im starting to consider a virtual machine - buts thats gonna be alot of hassle. Anyway. Any advice would greatly appreciated.

    you dont need real player. when you wacth a video , you open file directory and open /tmp folder.
    in /tmp folder has got video.

    perhaps, that work for all sites. but you know, in /tmz folder make a video files that it's .flv format
    And you must copy this .flv folder and paste another folder , before dont close the video web site. İf you close video web site , İn /tmz folder lost .flv folder

    I have used Download Helper and have gotten similar results as the MS realplayer version.
    HTML Code:

    Personally, I have used realplayer for Linux and I do not liked it at all; VLC is probably my favorite alternative. You might want to also give mediaplayerconnectivity for firefox a try in addition to VLC.
    FYI
    Nero Linux is nothing like the MS version either.

    I use Jdownloader for this because it let you choose de format and quality of the video, even convert it directly on mp3 but talking about folders temporally folder for flash videos in google chrome navigator is: "/home/(here goes user name)/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache", other browsers uses /tmp except chrome
