    "downloader does not work with all sites.."

    June 12, 2012  |   By NeilFiertel

    Pros

    well..hmmm...the player and converter work so long as one converts just a few at a time for otherwise it crashes or the conversion stops midstream. If the site permits downloader to work, it mostly does so..if you really want it to work however get iSKY EXTENSIONS and then the downloader works! no kidding...I discovered this oddity as the extension does link to the downloader from Real also.

    Cons

    Downloader is nonfuncitonal on many sites but see the pros to get it to work.

    Summary

    REal needs some programmers who actually know Mac systems as nothing works as it ought...free might be free but nonfunctional free costs me time and money...

    I SUGGEST USING CHROME WITH ISKY SOFTWARE EXTENSION WHICH WORKS LIKE A CHARM. REAL IS USELESS NOWADAYS AND DOES NOT DOWNLOAD ANY FILES AT ALL. SAFARI BLOCKS ISKY SO YOU NEED TO USE CHROME TO WORK WITH ISKY.
