Digital entertainment company RealNetworks has announced a new version of its free RealPlayer video player. As well as letting consumers download and play photos, videos and music on their PCs, the new version allows them to copy files between their computer and their mobile device (in either direction). The application, which is currently in Beta, can be downloaded from www.real.com/realplayer/beta.
Peter Kellogg-Smith, vice president for RealNetworks, said "Most people today have a mounting collection of videos, photos and music piling up across their computers, mobile devices and smart phones, and sometimes, this content doesn't even make it off those devices. The new RealPlayer provides a simple solution for streamlining and centralizing these videos, photos and music, making it easier than ever to move, manage and preserve all your media between screens."
