Cool. No more RealONE spyware (and, yes, even the new versions of Real products are spyware.) I tend to avoid using RM/RMVB but it's nice to have that capability when the need arises. I would not deal with RM/RMVB otherwise.

Love it. Work great with Media Player Classic.
RealAudio streaming works well but I never did like the bloated installation. This solves the proglem.

I have given this tool a 10!!!!!
Love it, no more Realplayer garbage hogging my system and registry etc.

The included media player classic is great, also plays mpg2
dvd video without the need for codec addons.

Great addon this for sure.
Totally reccomended!

Great freeware codecs.Ideal if you want to watch Real Media on Windows Media Player without installing Real One Player.
You dont have to install Windows Media Player Classic but rather use WMP9 Series or BS Player for example.

To add to the other posts - If you do not wish to use Media Player Classic, just install the codecs and open rm and rmvb files with your favourite media player instead.

I now use BSPlayer for Real Video playback and it works great.

Uses MS Media Player Classic to play RM "Real Media" files, what a great Idea! I HATE "R E A L" and this keeps there junk software off my computer for good!
