Real hits play on latest media software

RealNetworks on Monday released an update to its digital audio and video software that promises support for every major content format and online music download service.

The latest version of the RealPlayer 10 music-playing software offers consumers the ability to use all the content delivery systems the company's competitors developed, including Microsoft's Windows Media format and Apple Computer's iTunes music service. The digital media software maker is hoping that the flexibility of its new software will distinguish it from rival music stores and software packages. RealNetworks first debuted a test version of the software at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. The company distributes RealPlayer 10 for free via its Web site to consumers in North America, Europe and Japan.
