Download RealPlayer, the default player for the playback of streaming video and audio in the RM format.
RealPlayer enables you to conveniently play back video streams in the popular RM format. But the free basic version of the RealPlayer can do more: it supports the file formats AVI, MP3, MPG, MOV, WAV and QT. In addition, you can download clips from video portals like YouTube or Facebook and convert them into a format to view it on your iPod, game console or mobile phone.
Note: The installer downloads all the necessary files from the internet and offers additional software. Before the first start you can decide if you want to use the free Basic version or want to upgrade to a paid-for Plus version.
An overview of all the additional features can be found on the official website. Supported formats: AMR, ASF, AU, AWB, DIVX, EVR, EVRC, FLV, MIDI, MOV, MPA, MPG, MPEG (ES, MP3, MP4, PS, PVA, TS), MP2, MP3, MP4, QCP, QT, Real (RAM, RM, RMVB, RV), SSM, SWF, WAV, WMA, WMV, 3GP.
Verdict: RealPlayer scores with a new user interface and the ability to download web videos. If you want a slim, advertising-free alternative to play Real files, check out the freeware tool Real Alternative.
