RealNetworks has announced the RealPlayer Cloud service.  Using this service, RealNetworks users can easily access and share videos from any device.  The company decided not to just focus on mobile in this case.  The company wanted to make it possible to watch videos on any platform, including TV services like Roku.  RealPlayer Cloud uses the existing media player technology and combines it with cloud technology, according to TechCrunch.

Apps do not even need to be installed for watching the videos.  You can e-mail videos using a link and it can be played on most devices that use a modern browser.  The videos are not protected with digital rights management (DRM).

RealPlayer Cloud offers 2GB of storage for free with additional tiers of storage that start at $4.99 per month.
