Real finally came out with a Real Player for Mac OSX
, but do I really care? Sort of. This (incredible) music video by Royksopp
is only available online as a Real Media One file, and of course, there's no way to download the file and keep it locally for network free (read: smooth) play. I wanted to show the video to my wife, at home, but had to attempt a stream thru my modem, which was a disaster (read: choppy playback and many dropped frames). IMHO, the Real Player user experience is weak.
If anyone knows of an MPEG of the video, or a way to get the Real file to download to a local file, please let me know.
