so i downloaded real player for it's app real player downloader now i find at random the damn thing is starting two proceses, both use over 90% in CPU i can shut them down but they are replaced by a third process, inactive system process it's cpu usage goes from 87 to 98 it will shift trough all the numbers between those two, but it's a hollow process since my current CPU usage is of 2% to 14%

Downthemall and Flashgot both work wonders for me. You'll pull the files as the format they are, so if you want to grab a youtube video and turn it into an mp3 you'll need something else to do that. DTA and Flashgot are both Firefox extensions, should be easy googles to find. DTA is something I use more for batch downloading stuff like picture galleries or the like, Flashgot is what I use for youtube and it's look-a-likes.

I use a program called Mediacoder to switch around the filetypes when I need to, it's a pretty solid program (&free), but I feel like there's probably better out there. I've heard a lot of people love SUPER still, but it was very finicky and I just couldn't stand it.

People still use Real Player ? I thought it was dead a decade ago when it started incorporating bloatware into its installation. I know that from that moment on I dont use it.

VLC all the way!

hmm...there are plenty of extensions for firefox and chrome that allow you to rip sound files directly from a page. i havent used them in ages though, so i dont remember any of their names.

I prefer Zamzar for stuff like conversion. Just a shame it doesn't do files larger than 100mb. Wish they did a desktop program version of that.

It's Real Player that sucks, which is why I never use it.

Download RealAlternative if you need to open them. I use MPC-HC as my main media player for opening standalone files.
the catch is that i only use real player downloader, not the video reproductor, since from time to time i download musical vids and convert them to . mp3 format, but given that they still have the same issue of not being compatible adobe flash player.

Those'll be background processes that open up on startup automatically probably.

crap i forgot to mention, the real player process activates at random, even when i am not using the program
