Beta Test This: RealPlayer Beta for Android

Real Networks, a company which was once one of the biggest online media brands out there, has released a mobile app for Android. Dubbed RealPlayer Beta for Android, the application is an all-in-one media player capable of handling Music, Videos and Photos. It supports MP3, H.264, MPEG-4 and JPEG.  It is being geared as an overall media solution for Android smartphones.

Though its not the best media player around, RealPlayer is still very good.  The interface is extremely sharp and stylish.  Unfortunately, however, the menus and overall operation of the app is still sluggish, but we forgive this because the app is still in beta! It is still growing and developing.

Music can be viewed according to Artists, Albums, Genres, Most Played, Ratings and Recently Played and this can be switched easily with a slide bar at the bottom. The Home button helps you switch from Music to Video and so on.  The app is very easy to navigate and friendly.  I found it to be one of my most user friendly media apps available at the moment.

You can download RealPlayer from Market.  If I were you I’d definitely give it a look!

    This is hilarious.

    I don't care if it's the best app ever made for Android, I will never touch anything that comes from Real.

    It doesn't even support its own rmvb format. What a joke!

    You think that it's sluggish because it's still in BETA? Umm.. No, it's sluggish because it's RealPlayer. I used to use it back BEFORE it was "one of the biggest online media brands out there". Back when it was actually good. Then it became a bloated piece of crap and so will never use it again.

    Doesn't support rmvb? That IS hilarious.

    Um, RealPlayer? The software that everyone has come to hate and avoid like the plague over the past 10 years?
    This is indeed very comical.

    I'd be sooner to install a test version of AOL 2.5 for Android than I would to install Real Player for Android. Think they did all the damage they needed to do in the PC platform. REALly?

    ………Wondering if this Beta will play ‘real player videos’ on actual web-pages (like the NASA site etc) when I web-surf with Android – or will it just play uploaded stuff from my home desktop?
    Now; on my Captivate when I hit a web page with a ‘Real vid or clip’ on it it, that section just comes up blank – like ‘Flash” vids & clips etc on Android… Anybody have any knowledge about that .. Thanks John
