Real Player 11 / Which MSI Packager?
Two questions in one here .....
1. Has anyone packaged Real Player 11 into a useable MSI? Was it a case of capturing the package on a clean machine and using software to turn it into an MSI?
2. In relation, I've been offered some money in school to purchase software for running the network. I've heard some good things about Acresso Admin Studio - is this any good? Especially interested in the re-packaging options the software provides.

Use Real Alternative. Much better and you can use the /silent switch to install it silently using a script.

I am not so sure about that. Technically ripping anything from youtube.com is not legal surely?

I don't know about the legality of capturing the You Tube videos but it's easy to do with Google Chrome (and probably other browsers but I only know for Chrome!)
Real Alternative is almost certainly not legal - if you do install it and look at the DLLs you'll see that the ones for the Real codec are copyright Real Networks.
The only proper way to install Real Player in a school is to buy (at big cost!) the Enterprise Version.

Our LEA Support site has a load of recommended downloads, including Real Alternative.

Just give them a link to their temp directory. They wont be named but they can pick them out because of the icons and rename them.

We have had this issue in the past but Real Enterprise 10 (not sure if there is an 11) can be legally installed in schools for free

Enterprise 11 does exist - you can find info about it here.

It is possible that Real have changed their policy - do you have any links to something on their site which says that it's free for schools?

Only problem with Real Alternative is it won't play embedded videos using the plugin
Hate RealPlayer with a vengeance, crapware at its finest (worst?). Shame BBC still have it as their format for certain iPlayer and Internet Radio shows

Why would anyone want to upgrade from the BBC version 10 ? > BBC - WebWise Guides advert free...

What is the legality of using Real Alternative
25th November 2008, 01:23 AM #15
It breaks the original Real Player EULA by packaging the codecs without the original application. It does not come with any sort of license allowing the use of real player afaik.
