Every time I try to DL the free version, I get an error saying that the server is too busy or that I'm not connected to the web. I tried earlier today and then again this evening.

Any ideas? And no, the Active-X controller isn't getting in the way.

I never liked RealPlater anyway.

Too intrusive.

I use WinAmp5, Quicktime and WinDVD4 for my media-player needs. If something HAS to run in RP, I don't need it.

YMMV, but it can make a system act up. Be sure you make a Restore point first!!

Washington, thanks for the links. I got it installed.

The reason I was wanting it was to watch SNL Jeopardy skits. Those are CLASSIC but the DL format was .ram.

Sorry to hear that I'm too late. I agree with FastVFR and would have recommended RealAlternative instead. It's much less intrusive and runs through Media Player classic.

There's also a QuickTime Alternative and Codecs to allow just about any media type to play through Media Player Classic.

I agree 110% with jferrante. I *highly* recommend RealAlternaive. Everyone in my office uninstalled Real and installed RealAlternative. No problems yet.
