Ever since Real Alternative came out, I removed anything relating to REALNETWORKS from my PCs. I have a bunch of files (ra) that I dld from my friend's ftp (they're working and she called me to prove it). tried Real Alt. and got the a vague error "Playin...error". i tried to fix the problem (codec, installation, etc...) and no luck.
cos of the urgency of listening to these files, i decided to go to real.com and just get theirs. To my surprise, they have changed their way of site visitations. I'm behind a chain of hi-anon SSL proxies (8). Simply becuase I blocked all of their cookies and behind proxies, they blocked the downloads and anything relating to that section. googled for "download real player" and "download realone player" the first 2 pages direct to real.com and related. the rest have their dl link to real.com.
So, i went off of the proxies, deleted the caches and cookies then revisted real.com and accepted all their cookies. it was fine until i clicked on the download for xp link. didn't go anywhere and timeout (60 sec). called my friend again so she can send dld real and send it to me, she has left already.
Now, please save me the hassle of qwaking tonite and provide me with a direct link to someone's site other than real.com and friends. or u may send me the link via pm. if u need my email instead, let me know.
