is there someway of putting these videos into a format that will play without using realplayer? I don't know why, but realplayer won't launch and crashes my computer. is it difficult for it to be put in a way that windowsmedia player can read (and yes, i know its shit but my computer can run it without the blue screen of death)


Real Alternative

You're right, RealPlayer is a truly crap piece of software. Not only does it crash if you glare at it, it also is loaded with spyware that reports your viewing activities to a central site collecting marketing info.

Fortunately there is an alternative available for viewing RealVideo streams: the "Real Alternative" player, which is Free Software. You can download it here:

Real Alternative is part of the "guliverkli" project, and includes Media Player Classic, which is also free. It also plays DVDs, and other audio & video.

Try uninstalling RealPlayer, and replacing it with Real Alternative.

Hope that helps,
