RealPlayer Cloud is a cloud storage tool designed specifically for video storage. It's a valuable tool for anyone that records large numbers of videos on their iPhone or iPad that they may not want on YouTube. The tool is easy to set up and it's optimized for iOS 7 so it looks and operates smoothly and without any slowdowns, making it one of the better free cloud storage options for video on the App Store.

When you download RealPlayer Cloud, you'll need to log in or register a new account. This is a process that takes a couple of minutes. You can connect directly to Facebook during registration as well, which will allow you to publish videos to Facebook or download them from your Facebook account to your phone or cloud account. After the relatively fast sign-up process, everything runs very smoothly. The app provides a short tutorial and you can start uploading videos, moving them to the cloud, streaming them to devices in your home, connecting to your devices to download videos, and more. Any video can be added to a collection, tagged, shared, or uploaded to a service of your choice and all uploading/downloading occurs in the background. With a sleek, modern interface, RealPlayer has produced one of the best cloud tools available for multimedia on the App Store.

If you record a lot of videos on your phone, then RealPlayer Cloud is a great free app for your phone. It's easy to use, fast, and offers 2GB of storage out of the box for free. While it's not a total cloud solution for all files, it's great for video lovers.

"Needs a lot of work"

December 31, 2013  |  By jhs39

 |  Version: RealPlayer Cloud 1.2.104

Pros

Allows you to stream videos from your PC to your television if you have a compatible device. Easy to install and use.

Cons

Where to start? If you stream from the player to the Roku app it only works with videos, not music. There is no search function so if you want to find a specific video and have a large collection you have to scroll through everything until you find it. Will not stream mkv videos unless you shell out 40 bucks for the premium version. Will not play subtitles, whether files like srt or sub or embedded in an mkv file. Will not acknowledge playlists that you create on the computer version. Then there's the chromecast app--it does have a search function but any video you select says format not compatible to cast with chromecast so you need to load the video in the cloud in order to stream it. This takes hours and if it's a large video will also likely require that you pony up money for more cloud storage.

Summary

This is the easiest method I have found to stream videos from my PC to my television but the limitations when using the Roku and Chromecast apps are ridiculous. The web site claims that if you pay for the premium version you can not only play mkv videos but also access embedded subtitles but I have yet to come across a video where that was actually the case. RealPlayer Cloud is a good idea that's pretty poorly executed and still needs a lot of work.
