RealPlayer Cloud now available globally

February 24, 2014

RealNetworks has announced the global roll-out of RealPlayer Cloud, allowing users to move, watch and share videos on any device or operating system, anywhere in the world. Consumers can now use RealPlayer Cloud on iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows 8 Modern UI, Windows, Kindle Fire, Roku and Chromecast.

“We’re excited to bring RealPlayer Cloud to consumers worldwide. In just five short months, we’ve experienced extensive user growth and now have more than 500,000 users in the US and Canada,” said Rob Glaser, founder and interim CEO of RealNetworks. “Clearly there is a real need and demand for RealPlayer Cloud, which is essentially Dropbox for videos.”

With RealPlayer Cloud, consumers need not worry about converting videos, or carrying HDMI and USB cables to connect devices to each other to watch videos. RealPlayer Cloud simply works across all devices, including TVs connected with Chromecast. RealPlayer Cloud is powered by SurePlay, a revolutionary cloud technology from RealNetworks, which enables seamless auto-formatting of videos to fit the device type, size of screen, available bandwidth, and storage space of any device.

With today’s international launch, people around the world can privately share videos with their friends and family in other countries – even if their loved ones don’t yet have RealPlayer Cloud downloaded. If a video has wider appeal, people can easily share with their social network on Facebook or Twitter.
