"Best Alternative Player for Real Media"
Solid and simple
Lite and easy on your system
Very Easy to download and install
Gives you a simple way to play smil files on your hard drive
It doesn't make Expresso or massage your feet, it just plays media files, OK?
Very small learning curve to use it
No Wow interface, no flying through space thing, no "in the back working" to completely re-organise your computer and send information to the CIA
Real Player has suffered for its reputation as an invasive nuisance and slightly underhand, pay-and-keep-paying program. I didn't like it. When my distance learning school started delivering its lectures in .smil, I had to use this program to help me out and play them.This continues to be an excellent software, simple and faultless player for smil files and other video content. It does not contain any spyware that I have noticed-I use Avast IS and Malwarebytes. I have used this on XP, 7 and now 8 to play my Real movie clips, still have bad memories of how Real behaves, so am grateful for this. Roger Levy, Vanuatu
So I recommend this program highly for keeping it simple and working reliably. Thanks
