RealPlayer is a rather versatile Windows media player with full support for their proprietary formats like RM and RA, along with support for AVI, WMV, 3GP and DivX files.

Since the birth of RealPlayer, it became one of the standards of online video and audio streaming and while its dominance has faded in the past, it has maintained support for these formats along with added support for other audio and video formats which have taken the place of the legacy RM files.

The overall interface of RealPlayer has evolved over time, though it remains clunky. The media library included with this media player allows you to catalog your music and video collection and provides standard functions like search and double-click playback... along with playlist support.

Along with the main features of viewing videos and playback of audio, RealPlayer has some extras include easy DVD burning and video and audio recording to CD or DVD discs.

In the end, RealPlayer does a lot of different thing but actually excels and neither, including their own formats.
