It downloads most of the videos I want a copy of. It's simple to use; and has clean looks. For just downloading videos, it gets to the point. RealDownloader is as slow or fast as most other downloaders, which you can vary on. And u can select which folder u save your downloads to.
The button that appears when there's a video playing on the screen also appears all the time! It appears for high quality photographs, flash games, commercials, and whenever I'm editing my website. Too hyperactive. Although RealDownloader has ran reliably for me for 20+ videos and seems to handle all the popular video formats, some videos can't be downloaded because of security issues which no downloader program can thwart.
Of the long list of downloaders I tried, the RealDownloader was the best, followed by Flash Favorite. Some didn't work out the box; others started but didn't do anything. The high-end mega-power downloaders didn't come close to their claims, with problems detecting videos and/or claiming they had downloaded the video when they had only captured the http of the video, for instance the Celframe Fireup downloader.
