RealNetworks, the video streaming provider founded in 1994, said its RealPlayer Cloud video upload and sharing service launched a year ago has passed 8mln registered users. The company is looking to become a provider of comprehensive online services instead of just a video player vendor. The company is offering 365 gigabytes of cloud storage space for $4.99 a month, in celebration of RealPlayer Cloud’s 1-year anniversary. The service will soon be available in Microsoft’s Xbox One’s app store, allowing users to watch and share personal videos on their TVs. Later this fall, users will be able to upload video captured on their Xbox One to their RealPlayer Cloud account, allowing sharing and viewing of game-capture video across devices. RealPlayer Cloud was one of the 1st 10 apps launched on Google’s streaming device Chromecast. And the Google dongle seemed to be most popular streaming device for RealPlayer Cloud users, with some 96% of them who stream to their TVs using it, according to RealNetworks.
