RealNetworks today released the final build of its RealOne Player for Mac OS X.

With OS X compatibility, the release also features TurboPlay. This gives broadband users near-instant playback of RealVideo and RealAudio by reducing the time it takes to load or buffer clips before playback.

This latest version of the RealOne Player offers radio-tuner access to a selection of 1,700 radio stations from around the world, categorized by genre and location.

Senior vice president of consumer products, RealNetworks Phil Barrett said: "Mac OS X users can take advantage of the strongest and easiest streaming technology tool that we've ever built for the Mac platform, to enjoy the thousands of hours of audio and video content broadcast each week in Real formats."

The RealOne Player for Mac OS X is available as a free download from RealOne.
