I’ve been wavering back and forth for months on whether I should pony up the forty bucks for the “enhanced” version of RealPlayer. If it’s just a one-time expenditure, that’s no problem at all (I didn’t hesitate for a moment before getting AllPlayer Pro). Here are the basics:
I use AllPlayer for nearly all my video-playing needs. It’s highly reliable, works with virtually every video format in existence, and enjoys robust support. If RealPlayer is going to get any use from me as a video player, it needs to bring something big to the table.
I’m mainly concerned with RealDownloader. The ads are a bit obtrusive but don’t harm the functionality, and I don’t have a problem with the download speed. What is a big deal is the video quality. I’m noticing more and more that for sharp, clear, fast-moving videos, in particular video games, the quality under basic RealPlayer suffers. I’d like something which can capture something like this TAS in its original resolution.
The Premium is supposed to have some kind of video-editing feature. Has anyone used this? Can it read DVD files? This is the main failing of the last Windows Movie Maker.
Is one purchase truly enough? I won’t have to pay for any more updates, will I?
