    Besides the Real Audio player, are there any apps that can play Real Audio files? Windows Media Player used to, and there's a file I'd like to hear without having to install a Real Networks product on my pc.

    They've had more than their share of privacy violations. It's come up many times, and even now they use deceptive descriptions for options regarding reporting personal information. It's just a sleazy company that I'd like to avoid.

    I think Real tried to put the kabosh on other programs during the Streambox debacle (Streambox allowed you to save streamed RA files). But it just seems like someone must've made something like a Winamp plugin. [​IMG]

    **cough** you do need real installed, but after that you don't need to run it
