RealNetworks has announced the forthcoming release of RealPlayer 10 for Mac OS X, the latest release of their media player software for Mac users. The software is being released as a public beta version on Wednesday.

Able to play audio and video in formats include RealNetworks' own RealAudio and RealVideo formats, RealPlayer 10 for Mac OS X can also play back QuickTime video content in full screen mode, offers video controls and a graphic equalizer, integrates a browser window and supports Rendezvous, Apple's terminology for zero-configuration networking. The software plays back free content and subscription-based content made available through RealNetworks' RadioPass and SuperPass services.

In related news, RealNetworks also announced that its Real 10 Export Plug-in is available in final form as a free download. Released in April as a public beta, the plug-in enables Mac-based content creators who use Final Cut Pro, After Effects, Xpress Pro and other software to export their work to RealAudio 10 and RealVideo 10 formats.
