I, like most people I know, despise Real Player and Quicktime. The fact is that a lot of media out there on the web uses these two formats. So what do you do? I used to install and uninstall them as needed, but I would like to point everyone to the following two links:

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Rea ... native.htm

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Qui ... native.htm

These are alternative versions of Real Player and Quicktime which are installed like codecs and allow you to do things like play Quicktime in Media Player, no need for a separate application to play each one.

Just thought I'd share!

Thanks for that lucassix -- never even occurred to me to think of an alternative. I can tolerate Real Player OK... but I hate QT.

Both are too system invasive. I just want to play the @#$@ file, not have something loaded in my system tray constantly, with miscellaneous files scattered throughout my os.....
