There is a free RealPlayer you can get from the Real website.

Right. Go to www.real.com and click the "Real Player-Free" button in the upper right corner.

Ok, I'm not a fan of Real at all (see: Real Obnoxious) but I'd like to be able to play some .rm and .ram files that I've come across.

This method describes how you can get ffmpegx to convert Real files to .avi or whatnot. Has anyone successfully done this? But the method requires you to download Real Player to get some of its files.

My question is, does a Real Player install completely take over your mac like it does a pc? How easy is it to uninstall the app and all of its bloatware once I no longer have any use for it?

RealPlayer on the Mac is dramatically less annoying than the Windows version. It doesn't seize control over other file types, doesn't plug the Real subscription service, and can be deleted by (surprise!) dragging the app to the Trash.

Ditto that - been using Real Alternative instead of RealPlayer on my XP machine for a couple of years - but installed Real Player on my Mac and havn't had any of those nasty things it does on a windows system.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
