Real Networks announced today that it will be launching a new version of its dying video player this June. Unlike previous versions of the player, the new version will support file types other than just Real files, including Windows Media, Flash, and QuickTime. The new version of the player will also allow users to download video streams onto their computers. This means that users will be able to save their own copies of videos from sites like YouTube, MySpace, Soapbox, Revver, and more with a single click instead of relying on more convoluted methods.
