Yeah, I don't like RealPlayer... I doubt it would be spyware though, its just RealPlayer uses alot of resources to open up and play things.

Have you got Windows Media Player? If so, go into Options and find somewhere to set it as the default player, and you might check in Options on your internet browser too, to see what its using.

Videos and things should then run faster then.

i hope this helps

Real Alternative is one option it's real one player and can read all the files but a little simpler and not so bogged down.

Hmm, there is a way around this.

Try right clicking a lnik with a video on it and go to properties on a browser, and copy the link location, and then go to File on Windows Media Player, then to URL. Paste it in, does it then play?

You could try Winamp, as thats a very good player. I don't even use Windows Media Player any more. It'll also read files from the internet and play them

http://www.winamp.com/

I hope this helps
