    "Best Free Converter"

    January 8, 2015  |   By AlwaysaPlanB

    Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

    Pros

    The converter means I can use mp4 videos downloaded from Youtube, and the like, easily and directly in Powerpoint (by conversion to wmv).
    That's a big help to me and is more efficient than other free options I have tried.
    When it works, the download button is a boon too.
    It is free.

    Cons

    "Download video" from webpage button often does not "see" videos to download on a webpage. There's usually another way round but this is not the complete solution.
    You have to be aware when installing to make sure you only install what you want.
    Is the Cloud such a big issue? I just don't use it.
    I have always had to create a user name even when it was Realplayer.
    I have not tried to remove it so I don't know about the ease or otherwise of that.

    Summary

    Not an all-in-one solution.
    It does convert files easily and appropriately.
    The download function is helpful but cannot be relied on for every webpage.

    "Thumbs DOWN for this one"

    January 7, 2015  |   By clintonbd

    Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

    Pros

    The cons over-shadow any pros that I may have previously had for this software.
    I used to like Realplayer for the flv functionality. Now I use recommend VLC player as a safer choice

    Cons

    Users are forced to sign up for the cloud to use the product.
    The downloader works only intermittently.
    The software is invasive and installs in a way that makes it very difficult to remove from the PC.

    Summary

    The techniques used by Real Networks to stop users uninstalling this software and the almost make this Malware in my opinion.

    I believe that this is a good example of excellent software being turned to rubbish by developers who are focused only on revenue and not on user needs.

    "Cannot even create an account"

    December 27, 2014  |   By daveburch235

    Version: RealPlayer Cloud 17.0.15.10

    Pros

    Can't find any until I am able to log on

    Cons

    Cannot create an account, so I cannot even begin using the service.

    Summary

    I have been trying to create an account for RealPlayer Cloud repeatedly since installing it weeks ago. Every attempt ends with the error "We're experiencing technical difficulties. We are unable to complete your request. Please try again or contact customer support." I cannot contact support because you must have a paid subscription. I cannot get help from the user forums because I have the same problem trying to create a forums account. If they gave a damn, they would have fixed this problem by now: Surely I am not the only one experiencing this. So, I am quitting on RealPLayer Cloud.

    "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!
