.technically you should take all "REAL MEDIA" and get rid of it.

yes, the realmedia is problematic. any corporation that only allows one particular product to run on their own machine is what lawyers like to call a monopoly, and it's absurd when you look at all the formats available, and how much better these other, more flexible formats can be. to point out the ridiculousness of it all, it would be as if GM or Chrysler or Ford each required their own brands of gasoline, oil, tires, etc.---and only their own brands---to be used with their vehicles. not only this, but real's video backward compatibility is heavily flawed, and their older players seem deliberately bugged to remove common button and user features, all the better to get you to download their newest product. again, an analogy: planned obsolescence. and how does something called "real audio" turn out to be a video format? were they paying attention in school? or just dreaming up ways to rip off the public?
