I need to be able to download .flv (flash video), and I know that the program "Real Player" can easily do that. How can I install it? I cant find the installer anywhere.

You can easily do that installing an add-on in firefox. Don't need to install any program for that. Open firefox, go to the website with the flash video and click in download.

Here is the link to the add-on.
