can't believe this still is around

about RealPlayer and Clementine, SMPlayer, VLC Media Player Aug 2013

This player is the worst in my opinion, I see it everywhere still trying to get it self installed in Windows machines through people that dont read during installation. Its slow and its features arent good. Id stick with the Windows player if youre on windows and if you dont like it like myself then switch to a better option.

MY point of view

Comment by oliveer
about RealPlayer Aug 2011

I think Real Player includes the best codecs for ra/rm/rmvb files
I know that VLC(as a player with internal codecs),and K-lite Mega codec pack (as a codecs package with internal player "MPC HC" ) is even better than Real Player by many times
BUT Believe me people I am voting for Real Player just because its ra/rm/rmvb codecs nothing more
and yeah If some one says that we got "real alternative" which you think it brings what real player could do away from junk
Then I say no no that is fully stupid because look at the name people it is "alternative"
so Can any one ignore Real Networksefforts for upgrading Real players internal codecs ????

The only people who use RealPlayer are those who don't know that you don't have to install bundled software when installing an application.
