Software Product Description

Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer.

All RealMedia formats (.ra, .rm, .rmvb, .ram, .rpm, .rv,.rp, .rt, .smi, .smil, etc.) are supported, including streaming content and RealMedia content that is embedded in webpages.

Some advantages compared to RealPlayer:

  • Quick and easy install
  • It's easy to make an unattended installation
  • Proper uninstallation
  • No background processes
  • Use a player of your own choice
  • Low on resources
  • No advertising, no registration forms, nothing annoying


  • .smi and .smil files only play the first part of a clip.
  • RealMedia DirectShow splitter does not work with streaming content. You must use Media Player Classic to play streaming content.

Real Alternative Lite is also available. The Lite version does not include Media Player Classic.

What's New in version 2.0.2:

  • Updated Media Player Classic to version rev. 107
  • Minor changes

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: No newspaper any morning that I woke. Said he ran out, but I am a priority club member and was supposed to get the paper delivered to my room.
