    My mum keeps downloading it only to listen to previews of songs when she's searching to buy on Amazon.

    Real Player, & Quicktime are two of the most annoying programs ever. Once installed it tries to take over your computer. I f-ing hate them!:cmad:

    Quicktime is fine. Real Player on the other hand is, always has been, and always will be a giant pile of suck. The only reason I still use it is cause some pr0n websites insist on putting there free preview videos in that format :cmad:

    I dont use any of them
    I use Real Player Alternative, Quicktime Alternative and Media Player Classic, all opensource apps that are replacements for the real nasty spyware ladden evbil media programs.
