    anyone have advice on which program to use to playback .rm files?

    Not a huge fan of RealPlayer (I used to use Windows Media Player Classic in XP to play .rm files and was wondering if there was a similar Mac alternative)

    I've tried running it in VLC and was able to get some sound out but no video.

    Thanks!

    VLC won't play it, and Perian doesn't support it. I currently have RealPlayer installed just for the occasional .rm file. The RealPlayer itself isn't bad--looks like Real cleaned up their mess. However, getting to the player download page on the website is a PAIN.

    Here's a shortcut:

    Just check each step of the installer and make sure its not doing anything you don't want, and you'll be fine.
