    Hello Everyone,

    Me and My sister are in a little bit of a argument, she want's Real One installed on the main PC so that she can watch all the streaming video's on the internet, but I refuse to let her (went as far as installing foolproof trail) so is there a non-spyware alernative to real one or realplayer?

    You can get Real Alternative from Freecodecs.com. It works for streaming video as well.

    Can't you just disable the feedback settings in Real/One Player?

    i use both Quicktime Alternative and Real Alternative, i prefer them much more than the Quicktime Player and Real Player because they dont have all the junk that comes with them. Just a little Media Player Classic :p.. Theyre great programs! :D

    the codecs come with Media Player Classic which i think you have to use unless you can use the codecs with WMP :confused: It should come with the package anways. I use the Media Player Classic for them because it came with them :D

    I download using Streambox or Net Transport then use Real Alternative to play.

    O.k I installed it and went to NFL.com - when I click on the links to view the video I get a page saying I have to have real one player installed ..

    Edit: It works - Kinda sluggish, but it does work :)

    It does come with the codecs - but to view streaming video you still have to use WMP...
