    Wanna change the RealPlayer as your default player.

    When you install RealPlayer, you are prompted to decide which types of files you want to open with it. RealPlayer becomes the default media player for the file types you choose to associate with it. If you install another media program after installing RealPlayer, some of these file types may be associated with the new program.

    To make RealPlayer your universal media player after installation:

    1. Open RealPlayer, then click the Tools menu and choose Preferences. The Preferences box opens.

    2. Under the Content category, click Media Types.

    3. In the Media Types dialog box, choose Make RealPlayer my Universal Media Player, then click OK.

    To re-assign file types to RealPlayer:

    1. Open RealPlayer, then click the Tools menu and choose Preferences. The Preferences box opens.

    2. Under the Content category, click Media Types.

    3. In the Media Types dialog box, choose Manually configure media types for RealPlayer, then click the Select button. From the list that appears, you can choose the types of files you want to play using RealPlayer.

    4. Make sure that Reapply your media type settings every time RealPlayer starts and When clicking media in the RealPlayer Media Browser, play in RealPlayer are selected.

    5. Click OK.

    6. Restart RealPlayer.

    Sometimes you may also have to disable the file types in other media players for the changes to take place. For example, to configure your RealPlayer to play Windows Media streams, you must first disable the Windows Media Player.

    To disable the file types in Windows Media Player:

    1. Open Windows Media Player.

    2. Click the Tools menu, then click Options.

    3. Click the File Types tab.

    4. Uncheck all the boxes, then click OK to save the changes.

    5. Close the Windows Media Player.

    If you donn have a ' Download this video' option in RealPlayer you can try the given below steps.

    To enable the Download option in realplayer please perform the given below instructions.

    1. Please open up RealPlayer.

    2. click on tools-> Preferences and choose the option Download and recording.

    3. Now select the option enable web downloading and recording and click on OK.

    4. Please reopen RealPlayer and check it now.

    StepII

    1.Start Internet Explorer.

    2. On the Tools menu, click Manage Add-ons.

    3. Click the "RealPlayer Download and Record Plug-in for Internet Explorer" add-on.

    4. Use one of the following methods: • Click Update ActiveX to replace the add-on with the current version. This option is not available for all add-ons.

    • To enable an add-on, click Enable, and then click OK.

    step III

    In Internet Explorer, under Tools - > Internet Options -> Advanced you must check the box "Enable 3rd party Extensions". You can try this as an additional workaround.
