okay, well I haven't got a realplayer because I've heared anything with "real" in it is spyware, but somehow i don't think it's true, but if it is, then okay it is. The only thing is that, media player is a little heavier on the system other than realplayer which is a good program that doesn't take too much to load PLUS unlike media player it's got smooth playback to it(if your computer is slow, you won't be able to use media that well so i guess i recommend realplayer) if you're having problems with codecs I have some solutions (in another form around where this is) :tazz: Peace

realplayer has security issues that have yet to be addressed. also it is a resource hog. More often than not I end up removing it to resolve resource/performance issues.
