Postby p2p-sharing-rules » Sat Nov 13, 2004 5:04 pm

A real alternative to using RealPlayer.
I thought maybe you people might be interested in trying it out if you use RealPlayer, the media player that people love to hate, but still need it to play real formats.

Real Alternative 2.0.2 release date: February 19th 2010
(Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, and Windows 7)

Release Notes:
Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer or RealOne Player from Real Networks. Supported are: RealAudio (.ra .rpm), RealMedia (.rm .ram .rmvb .rpx .smi .smil), RealText (.rt) and ReadPix (.rp). It also supports RealMedia content that is embedded in webpages. The very user-friendly installation is fully customizable, which means that you can install only those components that you want.

Real Alternative Lite is Real Alternative without Media Player Classic.

Features of Real Alternative 2.0.2 :

Release Notes:

It also supports QuickTime content that is embedded in webpages. The very user-friendly installation is fully customizable, which means that you can install only those components that you want.

I'm using 'real alternative' now and it is a big relief not to have to rely on the genuine realplayer anymore. It was bugging me with constant (denied) attempts to contact the internet.

Your welcome Battye. :thumleft:
I also use Media Player Classic as my default player for videos & I use Winamp Lite for mp3's.
It plays just about any file extension, just as long as you have the right codecs pack installed on your system.
The only file type that i found that it won't play is ALBW's.I don't no why it doesn't play them.

Yep that's why I use 'em.I install QT alt 1st then install real alt lite.I barely watch clips in either formats , but it's good to have in case I run into a site that uses apple or real formats.MPC is a pretty good player too.
