Software Overview

RealNetworks RealPlayer Cloud was a multimedia player for computers and mobile devices that allowed you to capture, store, and share videos. The player integrated cloud storage, which enabled you to watch and download your video from different devices. The desktop version became RealNetworks RealPlayer in Windows, support for the Mac platform was dropped, and the mobile apps became RealNetworks RealTimes Video Maker for Android and iOS platforms.

RealPlayer Cloud was available for Windows, Roku, Chromecast, iOS, Android, and web browsers. The player could open all of the widely used media file formats, such as MPEG-4, ASF, QuickTime, MP3, JPEG, and PNG. The application allowed users to capture and share footage through Facebook or email, which is especially handy on a mobile device.

Along with mobile devices and web browsers, users could access the player on the Windows desktop. The RealPlayer Cloud user-interface includes three vertical panels that organize your accessible media based on the location (your device, the cloud, or CD/DVD), media type (videos, music, and photos), downloads, playlists, shared media, bookmarked videos, and more. When users would first create an account for RealPlayer Cloud they would start with 2GB of cloud space but could add space by paying, referring a friend, sharing their first video, adding their first video, and adding other devices. Users can create video and audio playlists by dragging and dropping their files. Users could also search for web videos in RealPlayer Cloud (Internet Explorer), even when playing media.

RealNetworks RealPlayer Cloud was a solid and convenient media player. It could open many widely used media file formats, share recorded footage to Facebook or email, and was accessible across multiple devices through cloud storage. RealPlayer Cloud was a quality service that made it easier for users to watch media, but the newer RealPlayer and RealTimes applications are solid choices, as well.
