Make buffering a thing of the past with Real VideoDownloader

More and more websites and social networks are providing streaming video, but you can’t always easily store it for offline viewing. There are numerous browser extensions that provide this kind of function, but they vary in quality and reliability. Now Real Networks - best known for its RealPlayer media manager - has produced its own downloader that works alongside most browsers, bringing its experience with internet video to the table.

RealDownloader is simple to install and provides you with a playback and management program for your offline files, plus a browser extension that helps you to select and save videos from any web pages that include streaming movies. 

When you visit a page containing suitable material, just roll the mouse cursor over the video element to see a button marked Download this video. Click it to transfer the video to your default video folder. To play a video back, launch RealDownloader and select the downloaded file you want from the list. The program includes a video player so there’s no need to hunt down a compatible app.

You can also share any of your downloaded videos using any of the most popular social networks. Place the mouse cursor on the video entry in RealDownloader and then click on the icon for the network of your choice: Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Bebo or a mail icon, which – surprise, surprise – let’s you email the video link to a friend.

To locate the video files themselves, click the View downloads icon, which takes you directly to the download folder, where you can copy, move or rename the files.

It wouldn’t be a Real product if there wasn’t a paid-for version available, and RealDownloader doesn’t disappoint. Upgrade for around $30 to RealDownloader Plus and you’ll find your download speed accelerated by up to 200 per cent. The Plus version can also convert video to audio, download video straight into your iTunes library, and transfer video to and from mobile devices, including Blackberry, Windows and Android.

Verdict:

RealDownloader offers a quick and easy option for downloading and saving streaming videos so you can play them when you’re not online - functionality reserved for the Plus version, however, can be found for free elsewhere.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
