Real Alternative is software that will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer on your system

Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer.

All RealMedia formats (.ra .rm .rmvb .ram .rpm .rv .rp .rt .smi .smil etc.) are supported, including streaming content and RealMedia content that is embedded in webpages.

Some advantages compared to RealPlayer:

* Quick and easy install
* It's easy to make an unattended installation
* Proper uninstallation
* No background processes
* Use a player of your own choice
* Low on resources
* No advertising, no registration forms, nothing annoying

Limitations:

* .smi and .smil files only play the first part of a clip. This is only a problem when the clip consists of multiple parts. These files are not very common. These files do play correctly when embedded in a browser.
* The RealMedia DirectShow splitter does not work with streaming content. You must use the included Media Player Classic to play streaming content.



The official change log for version 2.0.2 is as follows:

  • Media Player Classic [version 6.4.9.1-107]
  • RealMedia Codecs [version 12.0.0.301]
  • RealMedia plugin for Internet Explorer
  • RealMedia plugin for Opera/Mozilla/Netscape/Google Chrome
  • RealMedia DirectShow splitter [version 1.3.1268.0]
