Note to Johnny0:
I too am a fan of lite, lean-n-mean, apps. and despise bloated, clunky programs. FoxIt is the best, I happily sliced-n-diced Adobe and sent it on its way to "crap program hell".
Check out OpenOffice.org by Sun, if you're a Microsoft Suite user. OpenOffice is very lite, streamlined and incredibly efficient. I used MS Suites daily for 8 years and know the progy in-n-out. Once I used OpenOffice and saw it did everything and more, and better than MS Suite, MS Suite went the way of Adobe.
Real Alternative 1.40 indeed seems to work on x64 1433. Got video, got sound. at least on primary display.
One bug it seems, is that I'm running a nvidia 6600 dual display, and it only works on the primary display.
If i drag the real window over to the secondary display, its goes black and video time still going.
stopping and starting video does not resolve it. so looks like i have to play videos on the primary display only.
I did manage to find a freeware 'hack' called RealMedia Splitter 184.108.40.206: <a href="http://tinyurl.com/b33d6" class="korostus" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/b33d6</a>
RealMedia Splitter allows you to play RealNetworks audio/video files using Windows Media Player.
You will need to install Real Alternative [recommended] first.
Installation instructions: <a href="http://tinyurl.com/d7aas" class="korostus" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/d7aas</a>
1. Unarchive the package and use the files from Release Unicode if you're running Windows 2000/XP.
2. Copy RealMediaSplitter.AX file in system32 folder [ C:WINDOWSsystem32 ]
3. Then launch command prompt [ START > Run > Type: cmd ]
3a. Changed Directory to c:windowssystem32
• To install the files, type: regsvr32 RealMediaSplitter.ax
• To uninstall the files, use: regsvr32 -u RealMediaSplitter.ax
4. In the end, you should receive a message saying that your file was succesfully installed/uninstalled.
When I play a .rm video file in WMP10, it plays in both my primary and secondary displays, it blanks out for a second when i drag the WMP window back and forth, but it works, unlike Real Alternative 1.40.
This should also satisfy the 'anti' RealPlayer folks (although they would still need to install Real Alternative first).
