Real Alternative

Viwq Real Media files (.ra .ram)"
A review by Andrew

If you’ve received a .RA or .RAM file and don’t know what to do, let us shed some light on what these files are and how you use them. RA and RAM files are RealMedia files and are used to stream multimedia content over the Internet. Instead of opening these files with RealPlayer (a media player that can be quite annoying at times due to its aggressive advertising), you can use Real Alternative. 

This software package contains a media player – Media Player Classic – that can play all types of RealMedia files. In addition, RealMedia codecs and DirectShow splitter are installed on your system automatically when you install the package.

Real Alternative also installs plugins for popular Web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Opera, Mozilla Firefox and Netscape so that you can play streams directly from your browser (similar to the Flash player). 

The program has a small size, requires minimal resources to function properly and comes with a fully functional uninstaller. The lack of suspicious background processes and ease of use make this free tool a must-have.

Real Alternative is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in multimedia players category and is available to all software users as a free download.
