[Theora] hxplay versus realplay
Tue Jun 29 06:45:13 PDT 2004
Interesting. I downloaded and installed both
on my Mandrake 10.0 system.
With hxplay, the theora sample video, Mixtape.small.ogg, played as well as it
does with mplayer 1.0pre4, which is reasonably well. But when I tried to
watch it with realplay, the program choked and died.
Also, when I tried to watch Mixtape.small.ogg with RealPlayer 10 on Windows, I
got a message that it needed a plugin. I clicked OK to download and install
it. Then, I got a message that the necessary plugin could not be found.
That looks like boogers on RealNetworks.
