Real Alternative and Multimedia Codecs :: Download Real Alternative 1.90 : Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer/RealOne Player

I prefer using free substitutes for major media formats because these free players come without ads, annoying pop-ups, updates, and services running in the background and in the windows startup.
The link above leads to the Real Alternative. As the name implies, it is a substitute for Real Player. The pages is hosted at Free-Codecs, where many other multimedia codecs can be found.
The latest one I downloaded was Xvid, which plays all the movie files I've seen so far. The only thing missing was a3 audio codec, but which can be downloaded at the above site separately.
