To those who like RealPlayer content, but don’t like RealPlayer. That’d be everyone then? Well, visit this page fill in some fake info and grab a slightly less intrusive version of the player. There’s a field where you are supposed to fill in what your “project’ is where you want to use RealPlayer. I suggest you fill in something like ”Wish not to be annoyed the hell out of by other RealPlayer. Project is saving my sanity” or something along those lines. Perhaps then Real will get the idea that taking over a user’s computer is, ehm, rather damn annoying.
