Firefox defeats RealPlayer? Don't get me wrong! I mean their Web Video Downloader performance. Definitely both Firefox add-ins and RealPlayer plug-ins are very utility, it makes them very powerful, but also bring the drawbacks. And for most netizens, the most widely used functions are three: Web Video Downloader, Convert video/audio, movie/music Media Player. Let's make a comparison: Firefox Web Video Downloader vs. RealPlayer Downloader. Mashable video downloader online

Compare with other mainstream web browser, no doubt Firefox is great that it compatible with lots of add-in additional features, search engine sales staff, webmaster and programmer are appreciate it. But for most general users, those add-ins are useless, except the Firefox download helper. How does the downloadhelper works?

Firefox, as a mainstream web browser, sure it's very useful. How about its add-in web video downloader? Go to 3w-mozilla-org, search and download the Downloadhelper, apply it on Firefox. As the screenshot shows, it's easy to use(you can find some video tutorial on YouTube). It also has the converter function, but like its supported video downloading web site, the output format is also limited. Besides, I don't know whether it's a drawback or a good performance that the video has been downloaded onto the C Disk as you are viewing the video on web page(Like "automatic download" function), that's why its downloading speed is so fast. But i think this automatic function may affect your computer speed if you don't know how to clean your computer junk. Whatever, at least it's a free Firefox extension for downloading and converting.

RealPlayer, beyond its function as an movie/music media player, also contains many additional features. There are premium version and free version, sure both can free download web videos, but neither the premium version nor the free version, the downloaded videos require other players such as Winamp or VLC media player to play them. It sucks! So, as a media player, i prefer to choose a VLC media player. As its media converter function(RealPlayer SP), such as its Audio Converter, you need $39.9 for the Premium version. Off-putting, not all the web browsers are support the RealPlayer's downloader function. Also there are many other additional features, but here, netizens seldom use it. For most, you might just want to know How to use RealPlayer Downloader.
