How to play media files Real Media format (.RM) with Ziepod+

If you like to watch real media formated files (.rm, .ram, etc.) with Ziepod+ or with any other DirectShow supported player, such as Windows Media Player(WMP), then by installing codec package called 'Real Alternative', you can play them without needing to install RealPlayer.

Check [ this web page ] to learn more about this package and check [ this web page ] to download the latest version of this package.

Here is more info about this package:

Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer or RealOne Player from Real Networks.

Supported are: RealAudio (.ra .rpm), RealMedia (.rm .ram .rmvb .rpx .smi .smil), RealText (.rt) and ReadPix (.rp).

It also supports RealMedia content that is embedded in webpages. The very user-friendly installation is fully customizable, which means that you can install only those components that you want.

It is highly recommended to uninstall all existing Real related software, like RealPlayer or RealOne Player, before installing.

This way your system stays clean and potential problems will be avoided.

Here are some key features of "Real Alternative":

· Media Player Classic
· RealMedia Codecs
· RealMedia DirectShow splitter
· RealMedia plugin for Internet Explorer
· RealMedia plugin for Opera/Mozilla/Netscape

At the time we release Ziepod+, latest version of this package is 1.45 and there is one limitation of this version, which you have to know.

Coming with this package (v.145), 'RealMedia DirectShow splitter' does not work with streaming content. In other words, you can play Real Media files with Ziepod+ only  if they are located on your computer. Thus, you should first download and then play. However if you use 'Media Player Classic', which is also coming with this package, you can stream real media formated files.

Additional Notes
