The latest RealPlayer free download for Windows 7/10 is available now, but is it as good as once we thought it was? The fact is, RealPlayer 18.104.22.168 version, namely RealTimes (with RealPlayer), is suffering rejections from mass users at present. It has turned into a photo/video handling software that has engraved itself with incredibly slow performance, poor music management utility, and absurd occupation of processor and RAM which brings all other open applications to a virtual standstill even on an Intel Core i5 2.50GHz system with 4G RAM.
"* No private - wants all your stuff in the cloud,
*Constantly asks you to set up an account, when you start it, and everytime a looping video replays (years ago I paid for advanced level Real Player features, but they apparently cancelled that contract unilaterally)
* Downloader rarely works, and with only one or two browsers at that.
* Interface is totally confusing." -- commented by an Anonymous on CNET
Jack of all trades, master of none. RealPlayer has transformed itself into more than just a media player – a video photo editor, a file transferor, a web video downloader, a DVD burner, a share software etc. Its emphasis on strong playback ability has been diluted by all the other seemingly attractive utilities yet requiring you to sign in. RealPlayer at present only supports playback of m4a, mp3, wma, ra, rv, rm, ram, mvb, wav, flv, 3gp, 3gp2, mp4, m4v, wmv, iv4, avi, MPEG-4, QCELP, EVRC. So if you are looking for a strong media player that is lightweight and capable of dealing with other formats like divx HEVC 4K 8K high-res videos, you may have to look away.
After hands-on test of RealPlayer on Windows 7, we advice users do mind those buttons at installation setups, like "Agree" button which might trick you into installing Norton software. We also encountered several download problems using its download plug-in on firefox Windows 7 system. It just failed the download task and generally unable to respond to drag-n-drop videos (even WMP can respond quickly). And as same as complained by the CNET users, we also get endless signup alters to RealTimes. It is worth noting that the UI is not friendly enough for both video playback and file management.

Note: It almost took me 20 min to download and finish installing. Failed once before getting the success installation.
This Windows 10 exclusive RealPlayer alternative player does most of the tasks as RealPlayer does including online video movie download, video music photo playback, DVD playback, file management, as well as some minor video adjustments like syncing, deinterlace, subtitle insertion, ratio-spec adjusting, and MORE – 4K 8K HEVC H.265 VP9 playback, AirPlay mirroring, wireless iPhone screen recording. Sided with DVD (VIDEO_TS), 3D, 360 degree VR video support, this media player offers the most cutting-edge services among all the other players.
