These days, a great number of people are not only finding the majority of their entertainment online but are also conducting a fair amount of their social lives there as well. In such times, it's great to have a quick and simple tool for downloading, editing, sharing, and transferring media. RealPlayer SP for Windows already had most of that down, but the latest version brings the features full circle.
RealPlayer SP has been around since 1995, which is practically the dawn of the Web. It started as a basic media player, becoming the preferred embedded app for streaming audio and video as sites started to offer that functionality, and eventually morphing into the easy-to-use, fully-functioning beast we have today.
The previous version of RealPlayerSP already offered an easy, one-click solution for downloading unprotected videos for the Web. Another click transcodes those same videos to your portable device without a bit of extra effort on your part when it comes to fiddling with tricky digital format settings. The latest version of the software not only adds even more devices to the ever expanding list of compatible handsets, but also incorporates a very simple-to-use video-trimming tool that allows you to select only certain bits of a video to transfer or share.
Plus, the program has incorporated one-click buttons that let you share with a variety of social sites, such as Facebook and YouTube. In addition, you have the option to strip the audio out of the videos and save those as separate files. And you can do all this for free, as RealPlayer SP requires only a license fee if you want upgraded features, such as H.264 conversion and DVD burning.
