RealOne Player Alternative?



In my experience, Real One Player has been very problematic, but certain websites have chosen to exclusively use this format and I was curious if there is any alternative, because a number of weird scenarios occur whenever I have installed this software in the past.

Thanks a lot.

try this! its Media Player Classic! its a real one alternative! and plays streaming content aswell!

heres the link!

(for download link look in the left panel of the linked page)

I am curious as to how this can be considered an alternative to RealOne Player when RealOne Player has to be installed for Media Player Classic to play the real audio or video files? Same holds true for QuickTime files...QuickTime has to be installed...doesnt seem like an alternative to me...just another player really...:(


the updated version of Media Player Classic doesnt have to have the program installed. it uses the file codec to run the file. That holds true fof quicktime, i think it's the same for realmedia as well. Jet audio is a good program, i have and havent had any problems with it, makes mp3 files sound better to.
Man I dont really care what realplayer files are played in as long as i can play them. what i do is.

1. Download and Install Real Media 9 Codecs.

2. Download and Install QuickTime Alternative

And When U Click the link (say at www.amazon.com)
select choose program and select the media player classic that is installed with quicktime.

So after that you dont have to worry about programs u dont need to use. You got it all without programs fighting over taking file extentions.

I love using Media Player Classic for Real and Quicktime files. It opens up so fast compared to the others, and it's especially nice to get away from the stupid RealOne Center and "Upgrade to Quicktime Pro" windows. I realize that these annoyances can be disabled, but MPC is just so much more convenient.

Hey, how do I disable the "Upgrade to Quicktime Pro" window?



I may actually be insane.
You upgrade to quicktime pro.

Basically you can either buy the software, or have the free version with the occasional pop-up window.
I use to be a big RealOne/Player advocate, but recently when I go to use RealOne I get bombareded with adds and popups. I would uninstall RO but like Tbone said allot of websites require RO.

Just throw Windows Media Player, RealOne, and Quicktime Pro all in a pile and whichever one takes over your files wins..


Overcomplicated, more **** then I need.

I tried the Windows Media Player Classic with the RealOne codecs and it seems to be working like a charm! so far everything "Real" has gone really smoothly
