dont be scared,it realy is better.

Possibly is better but "once bitten, twice shy" and all that!

Seriously though, I don't have need of it - I use real alternative for listening to the BBC; iTunes as my jukebox, and Audacity for recording from the BBC and other radio sites.

could someone please tell me the problems with real player?i have always thought it was the best allround player.when i had a p1,166 and when i had my p2,350mhz,it would always produce media clips,video clips etc,faster and with clearer results,wmp would struggle compared to i have a 2500+ amd it still has the edge on videos,it will never be perfect on 150k,but real is better every time.i also find it easy to use its cd copying,and its radio (new one pauses live radio)i have heard storys about it taking over your pc.i have not had any problems in controling it and i have it as my default player but windows still asks me what to use if i put in a cd or what is the problem?i may have been lucky up to now,or maybe just ignorant.peter.

"...but the company's relentless use of it to sell unrelated services and features has made this program little better than spyware in many users' eyes."

If you have it installed on your puter,and use PC Pitstop click here to "analyse" your pc,it states you have SPYWARE installed on your puter! I tried a version on my puter,and it took over where my downloads went,took to trying to run my games as well as upsetting my poor likle firewall prog so much it crashed,leaving my puter open to external attack(not to much for a hacker to be interested in as its a home pc with little of interest on it)

I still wanted to listen to a particular stream tho',so I had a quick look around the web for alternatives,and two that often get offered instead of RealPlayer/One is either JetAudio(but at 17Mbs,its not exactly suitable for a dialup user)click here or RealAlt(4Mbs)click here from here.

It means you're the Guinea pig, they are testing it on you to see what bugs there are in the prog.
