    Every time I try to DL the free version, I get an error saying that the server is too busy or that I'm not connected to the web. I tried earlier today and then again this evening.

    Any ideas? And no, the Active-X controller isn't getting in the way.

    I never liked RealPlater anyway.

    Too intrusive.

    I use WinAmp5, Quicktime and WinDVD4 for my media-player needs. If something HAS to run in RP, I don't need it.

    YMMV, but it can make a system act up. Be sure you make a Restore point first!!

    Washington, thanks for the links. I got it installed.

    The reason I was wanting it was to watch SNL Jeopardy skits. Those are CLASSIC but the DL format was .ram.

    I agree 110% with jferrante. I *highly* recommend RealAlternaive. Everyone in my office uninstalled Real and installed RealAlternative. No problems yet.
