I need a good media player. How good is RealPlayer? Looks like it plays a number of multimedia formats including MP3, MPEG-4, QuickTime, Windows Media, and multiple versions of RealAudio and RealVideo formats. And there is a RealPlayer Plus version that allows you to download Web videos supposedly with one click. I can then transfer them to my iPod or burn them to my DVD.

The website says that the RealPlayer Plus supports video transfer to video-capable iPod Nano and iPod Classic devices but the RealPlayer Plus features are only available on Windows. This sounds like a pretty good and versatile player. Anyone know just how good it is?
