Well, I use RP, friend uses WMP. He was always dissing RP, so I challeneged him to a competiton, get all the video, music, and movie files we had,
share them through network so we have the same thing on both, and see what plays more.
Well, off the back, his WMP couldn't play any of my RM movies, oe shows like Daria, Love Hina, R.O.D., Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, BS by Penn and Teller,
or other Shows I had since they were RM, so there are hundreds I can play that he can't. I could play all the music, he could play all the music.
We got to movies, he was ahead, then we got to avis, and I kicked his ass. In the end I could play hundreds of more movies/videos/shows then he
could. He still says WMP is better, but I proved it sucked. Unless you don't like watching shows, movies, music videos, or anything else.
Also, when I go to full screen, same files, and he has a better vid card and moniter screen, mine always looked better.
So IDK why people diss Real Player, it plays more, looks better, and I can get the best out there free from the real player site.
Although, I use Itunes for music, and BS player for movies, just got Real Player for RM cause that is the only thing that plays those is Real Player.
With a 56k modem unless I am at a friends house(I do his chores to be allowed to stay at his place on weekends) rm files are great! Hmmm, 200megs for
a show, or 12 megs for the same thing, on a better player.
And now, after hours of deleting his crap off, am going to spend the next few hours defraging my HD. I went from 16gigs used to 57gigs used, back
down to 23gigs.(I kept some that were good)
