Microsoft’s Windows 8 has finally arrived and with it comes an innovative way to think about how you use your computer. The new Start screen has taken a fresh approach to viewing files and apps with a graphically rich tile-based design. Keeping that in mind, we created a new RealPlayer app designed to take advantage of Windows 8, called RealPlayer Daily Videos. You can get it now for free in the Windows Store.
Finding videos to watch online can be time consuming. RealPlayer Daily Videos does the heavy lifting for you, delivering the most popular user-generated and free videos directly to the RealPlayer Daily Videos app. See a video you like in the RealPlayer Daily Videos app, but don’t have time to watch it?
