AOL and RealNetworks announced yesterday that they will extend their existing partnership further with upcoming AOL 9.0 package.
New version of AOL's online software bundle will a media player capable of playing latest RealVideo 9 video tracks that use high-quality MPEG-4 video compression.

Despite companies' long and well-established partnership, AOL has taken small steps away from Real's technology. AOL's multimedia unit Nullsoft has slowly implemented various features to its WinAMP media player and in March, AOL announced that it will switch to use Dolby's AAC audio format instead of Real's RealAudio.

AOL sucks. But Realplayer however, doesn't suck as much.


Everyone is entitled to their own true opinion. Either respect that or don't.
