How to Use an Orbit Download

Shares & Saves

Orbit Downloader is a software program that enables web surfers to copy and download videos, streaming media and music from popular websites, such as YouTube and MySpace, to their personal computers. Orbit Downloader integrates itself into web browsers and displays a convenient download option when you scroll over the media with your mouse. Once the media is downloaded, playing the media requires only a media player such as Windows Media Player, Quicktime, Real Player or iTunes.

  • Click on the Orbit menu in your toolbar, and select "Enable Get It" to take media from the Internet.

  • Scroll over the media with your mouse until the "Get It" button pops up over the media and then click on it.

  • Select the format that you want the media to download. Your choice is between MP4 or FLV for videos, and only MP3 format for audio. Keep in mind, FLV is not compatible with Windows Media Player. The file will then download to your computer.

  • Locate the downloaded Orbit file. Orbit sets up a default download folder in "My Documents" unless you specify differently.

  • Click on the music or video file. Your default media player will play the file if it is compatible.

  • Open a media player if you do not want to use your default media player.

  • Go to the "File" menu in your media player, and select "Open."

  • Browse and select your media file on your computer, then click "OK" to begin playing it.
