I see that there are many people writing reviews of Real Players these days. Some are good, some are bad. Some people prefer to assume the role of scientist conducting tests on some new experimental drugs. They rarely even use the word Real Player in their reviews. They tend to be objective, using themselves as subjects in a sentence only when absolutely depleted of their scientific terms. They make it sound so profound and intelligent, sometimes I begin to wonder, are they even mortal? But on other days, I come to my senses and I understand that these people in fact lack the meaning in their reviews. They don’t use the program for doing anything, not anything important anyway. Not sure how they manage to look so interested in the subject, when they don’t really have any need for such a program. Perhaps the best contradiction to them is those review writers that claim to be users themselves. Totally subjective, these writers write their reviews from first person. They claim to be very happy with options Real Player has offered them. They love the fact that they can find and download multimedia content, they can use and edit it, can share it with others. Perhaps the most interesting part is that they enjoy so much the fact that one single program can even do touchy jobs, like video trimming, or striping audio from video and using these as separate files. All this is fine, except for one thing. If you are ordinary ever day user, how come you have the need for so many different operations. I understand that some ordinary every day users have need to strip audio from video and then maybe share that content with others via social network. I understand that some ordinary every day users have need to find and download multimedia content from internet, such is music and films. I understand that a user can do all of this, but what I don’t understand is how does he have time than, to write these reviews? I am an ordinary every day user of many programs, Real Player included, but I am not using all of these options. Some of them I use every day, several times actually. Others I use little less often, several times a week, or even less, several times a month. For the purpose of reviewing I used all of programs fine qualities several times, but not more than that. So when I sit down to write the review I don’t tell to people that I tested this program like NASA tests spacecrafts. Nor do I tell them that from day to day this program is great in use. What I tell to people is simple. Downloading for some people is imperative, for others it’s their lives on social network. Some people like or need to strip audio from video. Some people need to edit their files for purpose of their entertainment, or perhaps job. But what is so great is that Real Player does it all.
