About Us

WE’RE RealNetworks!

Since bringing the first streaming audio player to the Internet in 1995, RealNetworks’ guiding vision has been creative expression through technology. While our signature product, the RealPlayer® free video player, is probably the most well known of our offerings for consumers, we are also leaders in related media areas.

Our Video Technology blog is dedicated to delivering fresh, insightful reporting of the coolest developments in digital media and the cutting-edge technologies behind these breakthroughs. Whether you’re looking for the most plugged-in tech advice, that elusive new high-performance codec package, or the funniest new auto-tuned baby and badger videos, the RealPlayer Resources blog keeps you up to date — all while keeping it Real.
