Real Alternative Download
Real Alternative allows you to play RealMedia files without installation of RealPlayer. All RealMedia (.ra .rm .rmvb .ram .rpm .rv .rp .rt .smi .smil etc.) formats are supported including streaming content and web-based RealMedia content.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
- .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.
