Is there an alternative to RealPlayer that works with most sites? I heard some months back that they were snooping on people and giving some info away w/o users' consent. In the consent agreement for the current version (the free downloaded version) it says that their program monitors the user's activity and sends certain info (they claim un-identified in aggrigate) to other sites, which I don't like.

Hiya

The way Realplayer used to do it, was using the icon in the Systray. There was the little blue icon that used to call out to the Startcentre. You can disable it by rightclicking before going online. A use of a firewall helps with stopping it.
A free one is ZoneAlarm www.zonelabs.com

There aren't many players out there that play .rm's, but WMP is the most popular.

I don't know for certain. As you may already have it, you can give it a try. Just rightclick on the icon and close it. Then go to Net Radio.

You may need the icon, but ZoneAlarm may be able to block it and the radio plays.
