RealNetworks today announced the release of RealPlayer SP for Mac, a new version of their media player software for Mac users. According to the company, RealPlayer SP for Mac is a complete package enabling you to download, transfer, and share video. This includes the ability to:

- Transfer videos directly to nearly any device, including Android phones, Blackberry smartphones, a range of Nokia S60 devices, Palm Pre, iPhone, iPod, Xbox, and many others through automatic conversion and transfer to the correct device format, including H.264, 3GP, MP3, and AAC.

- Automatically convert and add your videos to iTunes so they can easily be transferred to your iPod or iPhone.

- Easily share your favorite videos to Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

Real Player SP Beta for Mac weighs in at 27MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.

I'm not a big fan of Real, but I might use it to capture a few Flash videos here and there.

Does anyone really use realplayer anymore i haven't seen to many sites left with realplayer content on them and most of them if they do have realplayer links they are dead or lead to spyware and malware.

Hear that? That's the sound of crickets... and the no one cares department. Real hasn't realized that the world has passed them by a long time ago. For me, this is one piece of software that will never touch my Mac... I know how badly it used to mess up my Windows machines.

Yeah, but everything messes up Windows machines. I like this player and converter in many ways. I just don't like the company that produces it.

Point Set! Very true. Since you've used it, what are the benefits of it, over others that come from non-Real companies?

I don't care much for the Real Player (VLC FTW!), but Rhapsody is so underrated. I so wish they would come out with a native Rhapsody application for the Mac. Why stop at the iPhone?

I don't think there is anything really special about the player. It even nails your CPU much harder than QTX. I just like how you can grab YouTube video and convert them over into iTunes for your iPhone, even though there are a plethora of programs for doing that. They also have a bunch of profiles for Android phones.
