Hi, I've just installed realplayer so that I can stream films from a site called Folkstreams. The site gives the choice of mpeg4 or real format to stream in which is why I have installed realplayer as quicktime doesn't seem to recognise mp4. Realplayer works fine and I have no complaints but I was wondering if it is the best option or is there a way to make quicktime work for these streams. I also tried vlc but the stream was very blocky and continually buffered. The other thing is, realplayer asked for my admin password to install the downloader agent, is it wise to allow this? It seems to go against the advice I have read previously on keeping the macbook secure.
