Real Alternative as against RealOne Player ?

  [DELETED] 16:25 13 Dec 2003

Would you guys recommend Real Alternative compared to RealOne Player, and if so what are the advantages and would the software let me access, for example, BBC radio stations?

I hate the way real player "takes over" your pc, and have installed Real Alternative. It does work with BBCi, and uses what appears to be MS media player, but the version that came with Win 95. I.E. very very basic!!

But it does allow you to view real media files. I've had no problems with it I'm using XP Home.

Its main advantage over R-One is your puter is still in your control.I put R-One onto mine,it took over d/l's,games,every aud/vid file on my puter,and demanded access to the net at any opportunity.I have been using RealAlt for several mths to listen to net radio(BBC included)especially as its Plugins for Opera browser actually work(whereas the ones with R-One never have yet)

I found this freeware in the Downloads areaL
click here Maybe you can replace Windows Media Player and Real One Player with this.

Its not free,RealAlt is.Also RealOne is a bigger d/l than RealAlt(so is media jukebox)

From the d/l's page "Price:Free trial; $25 to keep"

Were all probably used to just installing that appie in on in there.

Real is different to take control over it...Look what the options are at install/setup...
