RealPlayer Cloud is a handy media player that helps to watch, upload videos online, and share videos with friends. By creating a free account with RealPlayer Cloud, you will get 2 GB free cloud storage space, so that you can upload videos, and can access them from anywhere and with any supported device (like smartphone, tablet, TV, and computer). It even lets you stream YouTube videos and Channels on its interface. Along with this video streaming feature, it comes with built-in web browser to browse Internet.
