RealNetworks launches beta for Real Player 11 Today, RealNetworks announced that they had released a beta for the latest RealPlayer, 11. The new version is completely different from previous versions in that it does not focus on desktop audio and video playback but instead on letting users download video from various websites.
After installing the software for the first time, whenever you visit websites such as YouTube and Dailymotion a "Download this Video" button will appear which will allow you to instantly download the videos off the sites. The new player also supports Flash, Windows Media and Quicktime in addition to RealVideo.

You can upgrade to a "Plus" version of RP11 for $29.99 USD which allows you to burn the videos to CDs and DVDs from within the player. Future updates promise direct transfer to iPods.
