RealPlayer [buffering] teams up with [buffering] Amazon

Written by Nick Farrell



Realplayer [buffering] Cloud is with us

RealNetworks has unveiled its RealPlayer Cloud, which is an integrated video player and cloud service app, which will be available on Amazon Fire TV. With the addition of Fire TV, the Amazon and RealPlayer Cloud communities now have an all-new way to watch their video collections on their big screens from the comfort of their living room.

RealPlayer Cloud will be one of the first apps integrated with Fire TV at its launch. Because Fire TV was built upon an Android operating system, the development of the RealPlayer Cloud app was a more fluid and much faster process than what is normal for a new platform.

Rob Glaser, interim CEO and founder of RealNetworks said his cunning plan was to integrate RealPlayer Cloud technology into more devices, like Amazon Fire TV, that are changing the way people experience entertainment.

"We are offering the easiest way to watch personal video collections on a television set, and Amazon is making this technology accessible to even more people. We are thrilled to be a part of this highly anticipated product debut," he said.

RealPlayer Cloud allows users to store their video collections in the cloud, making them accessible on many devices. In addition, people can use the app to share videos with friends and family – even if their loved ones do not have the RealPlayer Cloud app.

Mike George, Vice President of Amazon Appstore and Games, said customers now have access to their favourite video memories right in their living room and displayed in a “visually stunning way.”
