RealDownloader window

When you click the Download This Video button, RealDownloader opens in a separate window. You can use it to monitor, pause, or stop the video's download progress. However, you're also free to ignore RealDownloader as it downloads the video. Because RealDownloader is handling the download, you can close the video's web page or move on to other videos or websites.

You can copy or share your download when it is complete.

Downloading multiple videos simultaneously

RealDownloader can download multiple videos simultaneously. While one video is downloading, you can add more videos from one or more web pages. The videos will download in the background while you do other things on your computer.

Good to know

As with any internet activity, download speed depends on a number of factors, such the video file size, the speed of your internet connection, and so on. But typically an entire video will download to your computer in less time than the video’s duration.
