Well today, bored since my video card is currently on order, I went on the web looking for different videos to watch. I hit up C|Net and TechTV. C|Net gives me a choice of Real or Windows Media. TechTV for some strange reason is only available in Windows Media. I have to say between the two I prefer Real. I like the RealONE player better, and quite frankly real media is simply better than Windows Media. It scales better, and all around is just better quality. When trying Windows Media on both C|Net and TechTV, it was very jumpy, and laggy. The stream often got interrupted. It was more like watching a horrible slide show than streaming video.
