  [DELETED] 21:55 19 Feb 2003

Hi does anyone have any opinion on which media player is better, real one or windows media player? real one seems to take an age to open up on my PC and 'freezes' occasionaly. Ive never really delved into windows media player much, I want to get rid of one but not sure which; or are there any better alternatives???

Windows Media Player 9 is pretty well behaved contrary to what many say. If you don't already have it, go to click here to get a copy

Hi Mogwai. Get rid of RealPlayer-it's not that clever. I've got Win ME and WMP9 is brilliant. I've not had any problems since updating from WMP3 about 6 weeks ago. The HELP menus are a definite asset if you need to search for something specific. Good luck!
