Editors' Review

RealPlayer Cloud 2 is a complete solution for all of your media playing needs, and the cloud integration means you can sync across devices, as well. That means is easier than ever to watch iPhone videos on your Windows machine, or add YouTube videos to your library, and watch them on your mobile device when you're offline.

Pros

Facebook integration: When you log in to RealPlayer with your Facebook account, you can quickly share your favorite videos with all of your friends. And working in reverse, you can also view videos others have shared to Facebook straight through your RealPlayer interface.

Sync across devices: Not only can you manage your RealPlayer account from any of your devices when you sync them through the cloud, but you can also stream them directly to your TV. This player integrates with both Roku and Chromecast, so you won't have to plug your computer into the TV anymore to enjoy all the videos in your RealPlayer library.

Cons

Some bugs: While the Web Videos tab is a nice addition to the app, it never played a video during testing. Videos showed up in search results, but when one was selected to play, all that we saw was a blank screen.

Bottom Line

RealPlayer Cloud 2 provides a nice assortment of features, although not all of them can be counted on to work as intended. If you're the impatient type, you might look for a less versatile player with the features you care about that can get things done more quickly. And while the flexibility of the cloud is definitely convenient, it's almost becoming standard for major media players at this point.

"Don't want the "Cloud""

November 29, 2014  |  By Sevciu

 |  Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

Pros

Sorry guys didn't get to see the pros... Got heavily annoyed with "The Cloud" login requirements.

Cons

The requirement for login and Inability to disable "The Cloud".
Not possible to uninstall via Control Panel.

Summary

Can CNET live up to its bravery and give a poor review when due?

Why on Earth someone would think I would gladly copy my media on the Word Wide Web? Why would I want to be mustered like cattle and gently herded towards opening my privacy to wide web?
I can handle my backup requirements within my personal network, if you want to make a good product, please cater for this.

Now I want to uninstall latest version, and go back to the pre-cloud version, but that seems to be a hassle as well.

Cheers!

"Farewell to RealPlayer"

September 07, 2014  |  By FullyRetired

 |  Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

Pros

That there are CNET like this to warn potential users of poor updates. Too bad I based my expectations on years of previous good experience with RealPlayer instead of checking it out on CNET first.

Cons

I want to vote with the others who decry the failure of the RealPlayer folks to give a clean uninstall of RealPlayer Cloud. I quickly determined it wasn't for me, and after hours of work I still can't get rid of the digital garbage they have left on my computer.

Summary

No reputable company should put such NOT-ready-for-prime-time software out without a warning that it's a beta or below quality release. Totally unsatisfactory for a company that has served well for a long time.

"Sadly must agree with others' negative remarks"

August 07, 2014  |  By ttstoo

 |  Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

Pros

It USED TO be good, before the "cloud" version!

Cons

From my p.o.v., it simply doesn't do what it used to simply do. Consequently I've stopped using it, and instead use VLC.

Summary

I've used Real Player Plus for many years, and considered myself pretty much "bolted-on". But despite this, RP seem to have successfully unbolted me with the new "cloud" version, which I didn't want and resent having foisted on me without being offered any choice. Bye bye RealPlayer.

"Has lots of advantages but doesn't quite compare to VLC"

July 06, 2014  |  By tomysshadow

 |  Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

Pros

Good music player, good visualizations, Cloud option is handy and if you don't want it then, well, don't use it for gosh sakes! You aren't requires to put files into it. Aside from that it is good for playing AVI files and its own proprietary format. It has a music library which I'm not a big fan of but once again, if you don't like it don't bother to use it. It also looks really nice, better than the awesome but admittedly outdated looking green and white colour scheme. It is also easy to set up and sign up, and no junk mail.

Cons

It does play a lot of formats, but still not as many as VLC.

Summary

Looks nice and plays many formats. A little bit on the slow side though.

Updated on Jul 6, 2014

Looks nice and plays many formats. A little bit on the slow side though. Also the downloader, converter and trimmer are a nice touch and an improvement over previous versions.
