Question. When I view a short video from the net and it plays in windows media player. How can I save that download to a folder and view it at another time? I use firefox. I set it to download to a folder I created. But when the folder opens there is nothing there. I can just view it at that moment. How can I do this?

You know of course that you can use Real Player to download videos directly on Firefox.

I'm not sure but I think you have to have the latest versions of Firefox and Real Player installed. I don't normally use Firefox. The option will come up while you're watching a video. I did this last week when I needed a video for my blog.

Yes realplayer will allow you to save videos from the net..

also with firefox there is an add on called 'VideoDownloader' which will do the same sort of thing, though only for a limited number of sites..

(the realplayer option would be better tbh)

mine shows as v.11.. link from frankp316 above :thumbsup:

in terms of setting it up i seem to remember it being an option you will have during setup. if not you can enable it once the program is installed;

simply open realplayer - tools - preferences - download and recording - check box :flowers: (also with some other options, but you will see those when you get there)

Not sure if you even have to do that. What will happen is when you watch a video on Firefox, a little Download This Video box will come up next to the video and you click on that. So you don't even have to go into Real Player until after you download the video.

the 'download this video' box only appears if you have it enabled to, which is what i gave instruction for (just in case it wasn't enabled already..)
