RealPlayer For Android Devices

Android phones are one of the most famous Smartphones used by consumers worldwide. If you are using Android 2.1 and other new versions then you have experienced the stock media player. It is joy to use this media player. It has a fantastic user interface and also has other application of Google’s operating system so it will be helpful to you to share the pictures or video with friends and family members.

Seeing this media player it seems a little foolish idea to launch a all- new media player right now. The leading company in this sector Real Inc will launch a media player regardless of these facts. RealPlayer has a long history of developing media playback for home computers, now recently it released a public beta version of its RealPlayer for Androids.  The main aim of this application is to become the first choice among Android users for viewing movies, enjoying photographs and listening to music.

RealPlayer is doing a great job by bringing different media together in one place. There are main features like browse your pictures and also listen to music at the same time. It will be also help you in creating slideshows of your snaps. It is looking excellent with its intuitive interface.

Here it also comes with 3D cover art transitions and all the usual option that make this media player above average. It has all the usual options that you expect from such application. It has integrated everything in a very logical manner but the menus and icons look a little half-finished. We can say that the design is very underwhelming and is curious because its come from a experienced one in this market.

When we compare both the stock Android player we found that RealPlayer is faster at loading-up clips. But there is one serious problem regarding its own RealMedia video format because it does not supports in Androids. The problem is due to the current codecs in Android Operating system.

There is one more issue about the folders from you load any media files, it is currently not possible in RealPlayer. If you have any external storage device then it will found the media but the annoying part is when you download a game and it will shoe pictures from that games also.

In RealPlayer it is also very difficult to share any of the content online. With RealPlayer you can upload or email a image to Picasa or Facebook something which is better and possible in Stock Media player.

Overall we can say that it is currently in progress and as soon as it will get completed it will be a good choice for Android users. There is not any problem with its performance but it only lacks some codecs and slight problem with file upload.

Real Player is perhaps one of the best all in one multi-media application. The Real Player positions itself as a free download in the Android market. RealPlayer is a medium with which downloading of video, audio and images are easily possible.

As this application is been considered a work-in- progress solution, work on it is always ensuing. Customer feedback has caused the upgrade version been released. The RealPlayer Android version released in the CES 2011 is a step up from the default applications. In it there is a music as well as video player and additionally a photo viewer. These are all the basic requirements in a player and these do the job very well.

However, it offers a little more than the facilities required and is th reason why it is downloaded so much. The slick interface looks great. It is like the music player and gallery all rolled into one. Seems like a money spinner and it is in its beta version. You can use the folder browser to keep the files scanned. So you could suggest it to someone who does not want internet radio. Or to someone who does not fancy Winamp player. The scanning animation never seems to stop. On the whole it has stolen the hearts of music lovers and the fancy of many who love to watch videos on their system.

The interface is sleek and looks enterprising. Playable on the mobiles now thanks to the Android version, the RealPlayer is selling well with a popular demand growing in leaps and bounds. The RealPlayer has hit back at other player types with their new Android feature.

Media players: A must have Entertainment Software

We human beings have always needed tools and utilities for our entertainment purposes. Right through the process of our evolution, along with us those tools and utilities too have evolved. In the field of enjoying music and multimedia files, from tape recorders to speaker systems, and now when as this is a digital era our entertainment modes too have turned digital. Take a look at today’s media players.

Everyone enjoys listening to their favorite tracks and their type of music. We all build our carefully chosen playlists and gather our favorite artists and keep them arranged. We listen to them often and often, again and again, innumerable times. So seeing the music lovers’ love the media players had to keep up with the trend and technology. Talking about the media players, they have faced a long journey as the methods of storing and accessing music kept on changing. Starting from physical and bulky players which used to play magnetic cassettes till software applications which run all media files in computer only and everything is in soft form, it indeed has undergone a great deal of transformation.

Today’s media players are just software applications which run in your computer and which can’t just play audio files but also streams video files seamlessly. Things have moved on from Cassettes, CD’s, etc. and now as everything is in just files things are very easy. If you have a portable music player, a pocket media player like iPod, if you have a good stereo system at your home, if you have a computer with good speakers, if you have a car stereo system, or any other mode of playing music synchronizing music has become an idiot’s job today. Everything is digital and everything is just files. So talking about the media players, they are applications which have codecs to play certain format of files. If you want to play a audio file then there are file formats like .mp3, .wav, .ogg, etc. now for your media player to identify these type of files you need their respective codecs. Likewise it is for video files there the formats are like .mp4, .avi, .mpeg, .mkv, etc.

If the codec is not available in your media player then your media player will show an error message as the file is unrecognizable or unreadable. Now if you face such a situation then most of the media player software applications available today offer a facility to download that codec from their site and embed it in the software and run that file. There are several wonderful media player applications available in the market today. The good thing is that not all are paid software apps, there are several excellent players which are absolutely free and some even open source. Naming a few of them like VLC media player – an excellent free media player which has excellent set of codecs which hardly misses any, then there is Winamp – traditional media player which has upgraded magnificently with the passage of time to keep up the trends, KMPlayer, MPlayer, Real Player, Quick player, iTunes, Audacious, etc. All these are free media players. They offer tons of features.

There is also a media player named windows media player which comes bundled with the Windows operating systems if you feel like using it. If you have any other choice of your own favorite player you can use that too. If you are aware of all the features offered by a media player and are comfortable in using it then it is perhaps the best option and you should go for it.
