People still use real player ??
RealNetworks has issued an update that patches four security holes in its RealPlayer jukebox program, including a critical flaw that vulnerability tracker Secunia published today.

Real player... the piece of software that make MS stuff look secure... people are still releasing security patches for that. Good to know that some people are still interested in defending lost cases.Next thing you know, some people with too much time on their hands will try and fix Quicktime playa. Y'all 'd better bend over and accept the French-developped vlc. It's working, it's cross-platform, it's good, it's reliable. It's, in a word, French.
Tongue firmly inserted where it belongs (no, the OTHER place). But vlc is still really good.
No RP on this box, so sharp intake of breath anytime I ask WMP to play a video from the BBC site, feckin thing either does nothing or crashes browsers left right and centre. End Task, Don't Send, Beam Me Up, etc.. Open in new window? Takes parent out with it, God damn.
Last Friday, WMP wouldn't play Kermode's live stream on R5. Desperate, stuck the URL into VLC and it played just fine. Quirky I'll admit, but it gets better with each release.
Shove RP where the sun don't shine. Where's the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy icon?
