    Another good reason not to use IE.
    The author offered good advice,use FF with No Script.

    I have both on a PC, but since I don't actively use RealPlayer, it is a "hidden bug".

    Hi Matt,

    No offence, but I think Real Media and Real Player suck. Same goes for Windows Media btw. I hope Flash video will become the "de facto" standard, it´s simply better. But nice to see that you took the time to post on this forum. ;)
