[access-uk] Re: Windows Media Player versus Real Player.

Kevin, Dave & Harry,

Thanks for your feedback. I'm guessing that either application is workable, it just comes down to personal choice.

Thanks.
Tink.

hi, i beg to differ! i use realplayer with no problems using jfw. no
pop-ups, no spy ware, nothing like dave has mentioned. so take your pick!
smile. if you configure realplayer properly, you don't get any interference
from pop-ups, and it doesn't download anything unless you allow it too.

I think the fact that there is a program called Real Alternative to play
real audio files says it all.  Real player is dreadful.  You get pop ups,
info tabs, things downloaded, and I'm sure loads of spyware as well.  I
never trust Real at all.  At least you can disable all the nasties in
Windows Media Player and it is accessible!

Cheers
Dave
