RealNetworks has introduced RealPlayer SP, it’s latest media player. S stands for “social” and P for “portable”. It allows users to record, download, and share DRM-free video via a browser plugin. (A free version of the player is available for download at Sharing Media

Now, in addition to recording videos, users can easily move them to other platforms. Say you’re browsing and find something relevant to a project you and a colleague are working on – you need to get the information to him immediately. If it’s shareable content, you can go easily pass it on via email. Additionally you can pass it on social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Say your coworker is in the gym listening to his iPod or at home relaxing with his Xbox? RealPlayer SP lets you send it there. 

I mentioned “shareable content” because RealPlayer SP is intelligent in recognizing material that can legally be shared while protecting content sites that prohibit sharing (such as In short - Protected content can’t be shared – copyright holders will love this feature too.

One interesting aspect is the wide range of non-phone devices that can receive content from RealPlayer such as PSPs, Apple TV or the Xbox. These type of ideas enable convergence: Imagine when you could do this easily from any device. Again, it’s great for the industry to encourage innovation and personal media sharing.
