Youtube Player: yes this news is 'Real' ;)

RealPlayer used to be cool, until iTunes and Windows Media Player made it obsolete. But the new RealPlayer is set to turn the tables: It can rip net videos, even those on YouTube and from video streams, with a single click.

So many sites use Flash players as their sole download deterrent, or video streams that can't be saved as more than a bookmark otherwise. The UI on the player pops up over a Flash or movie stream window, allowing you to click to download. What's cool is that it preserves meta-data, like name, rating, description, and where you got it from. Sharing videos with friends at that point sends the source URL instead of the actual video file. Right now, it can't transcode, but it will burn DVDs if you pay for the registered version. Thankfully, the freeware still rips.

A beta of the new RealPlayer is available for you all peeps via a free download from www.realplayer.com.. njoy ripping ;)
