A Simple Multimedia Application that Conveniently Plays Your Video and Audio

By Sam James

On Thursday, September 4, 2014

I have to say RealPlayer is one of the most user-friendly media players that I have ever used. I find its user interface very easy to learn, plus it has a collection of impressive tools that can process your files in a very fast way. What I like about this media player is that it can download your preferred videos or audio from tons of websites in just a single click. It supports all major media formats like MP4, MP3, FLV, MOV, DIVX and many more. I also like that you can create your own playlist and library with ease. I am also amazed that this application has a CD burning feature, which I find very helpful for home users. Furthermore, I like that it has a built-in sharing option where you can display your videos on any social networking websites. All in all, RealPlayer is an excellent media player app that allows you to play everything that you want in a convenient way.

Real Player has been around for quite some time and has been used by many people for many different reasons. The intuitive user interface allows for easy access to all functionality that the software offers to its users there is a large amount of documentation readily available on the user website.

Some of the features that Real Player has to offer are:

Storage of any video files as well as MP3 WAV and other files in the cloud as well as on your system.

Ability to convert file formats from one to another with the built in converter

Accessible from multiple devices that you have the program installed on.

The accessibility of this software is fantastic it allows users to store mp3's mp4's wav's and other file types in a place that is safer than their home computers in case of a crash or other problems with a pc system.

It comes with 3GB of space for storage which can be upgraded for a monthly fee if you make use of the product that much. Which is great for anyone who works with these file types daily for any reason.

Overall there is no other software out there that compares to Real Player that can be obtained for the same pricing model.

  • Accesible, clean, intuitive user interface


  • Limited amount of space available in the cloud unless you are a paying user
