RealPlayer 11

RealNetworks today ended its primary beta testing and released RealPlayer 11, the latest version of its audio and video playback software. The new version is designed to make web video usable elsewhere and lets users click a button to transfer many embedded videos on websites to an iPod; all fifth- and sixth-generation iPods as well as the latest iPod nano can immediately get unprotected videos in a compatible format. iPhone and iPod touch users will gain support early next year due to their software, RealNetworks says. Initially, Windows users can queue these downloads regardless of a video's progress, how many are already being downloaded, and share a direct link to the video through e-mail. Every version has an improved interface with a quicker install and optimized video playback.

A standard, free version of RealPlayer is available now from the company's website for Windows users. RealPlayer Plus adds the iPod transcoding feature for $40. A beta of a Mac OS X version that supports both Tiger and Leopard has launched along with the completed Windows software and includes plugins for both Firefox and Safari. The company does not say when it expects a finished version of the Mac client.
