    Deploying realplayer on a network.

    I can't find a way to deploy realplayer on a network other than to use wininstall capture. I don't like relaplayer personally, but our primary are dead set on using a BBC website that uses it.

    Someone else must have done this!

    At a time the user agreement wouldn't allow you to deploy it over the network. Not sure if that still applies. Might be a loop hole for you

    The issue is that they want to use a specific website which requires a real player browser plugin to allow RAM files to play within the browser.

    This plugin seems to be only available by installing the full real player free suite which wants a good couple of hundred meg of space, access to all of your existing media, a facebook account, your grannies middle name and a sample of your blood.

    I think the answer here is to tell them it can't be done. find another option!
