Here we go – the latest build of RealPlayer Plus is here. Build 18.104.22.1687 features several minor updates and enhancements over the previous release. The plus version includes several features not included in the free, basic version of Realplayer such as 10 band equalizer, web video burning fast CD ripping and more.
If for whatever reason you don’t want to install RealPlayer on your system, try Real Alternative (a codec pack designed to support playback of Realmedia file formats on popular media players – something like CCCP).
