Real Media Player is so awful and causes so many problems I used to immediately delete it from any system I was planning to seriously use to just ward off future problems. My heart sinks when on-line content is only available in .rm format, but I try to install it anyway--it worked maybe ten percent of the time over the past, what, ten years? However long it's been.
I tried yet again to install RealMedia in 2007 and after 2 hours of frustration I finally gave up, looked for another solution, and found Realalternative. Praise be to Jesus and I'm not even religious. It works perfectly and for the first time in my computer-using life I don't have to fear the .rm.
