    Don’t feel bad

    I have to agree. BSG was something I looked forward to, even set it up on the DVR. Somehow I missed the first ep, and though I was going to go forward and watch anyway I never got around to it, and it was eating to much HD space. I was estatic that they had put it up on the web, till I got there and it wanted Real… guess I’ll just have to wait for DVDs.

      Search google for RealAlternative. Sure, its still Real’s crappy codec, but at least you don’t have the crap-ridden RealPlayer to use. It usually includes Media Player Classic, a replacement for WMP, which harkens back to WMP6, but with more robust features.
