RealPlayer SP update

Real has announced an update to its media player, RealPlayer SP, which adds a variety of new functions for sharing content or transferring videos to portable devices. Users can download videos from the Internet, and then select their particular mobile device from a drop-down list.

The software automatically converts web-based videos to the proper formats for devices such as iPhones, iPods, BlackBerrys, the T-Mobile Sidekick, Nokia smartphones and the Xbox. For devices that lack support for video, SP can convert the videos into audio-only tracks.

Users can simultaneously download several videos, or transfer the same content to a number of different devices from one screen. The interface also provides options to share the videos with friends via Twitter, Facebook or e-mail.

RealPlayer SP is currently only available for Windows systems running Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox, although a Mac variant is expected to be ready by the end of the year. A premium version, Plus SP, costs $40 but adds h.264 conversion and DVD playback or burning.

    Adult entertainment has seriously reached a new low. As for the software, I've never tried to copy videos to my Bold, but this looks nice.
