One-click video downloading
RealNetworks has announced that the latest iteration of their free RealPlayer is the first media player to make it "one-click simple" to download online videos from websites. It will do this by floating a "download this video" button next to any video on any website. This free downloadable video player will allow anyone to easily save and organize video files in all major formats including Flash, QuickTime, RealMedia and Window Media. Note, however, that it will only download DRM-free files (DRM, or digital rights management, is a security technology that protects copyrighted works). The new RealPlayer will be available beginning next month at RealPlayer.com.
