*sigh* This isn't really a Mac-focused question, but can someone please explain to me why so many professional sites only offer RealPlayer (or a combination of RealPlayer and Windows Media) files instead of mp3s? I loathe using RealPlayer, but there are just too many places that require it. My own organization, a major scientific organization that really ought not to be technologically clueless, only offers RealPlayer files. I've been trying to convince them otherwise, but without much success. There must be some reason, some advantage, to RealPlayer that I'm missing. What is it? At least if I understood why they insisted on RealPlayer, maybe it wouldn't frustrate me so much.
