A study of how Real chewed its lunch and assimulated the enemey.
Its sad and yet puposefull that this had to happen as it did. Streambox
made several great programs to mess with real formats and streams. One
prgram called Stream Box Ripper reencoded Real to Wav or Mp3. Another ,
once called Xfile Get then called Stream Box VCR now called DOA, grabbed
streams that you pointed it to and saved them on your hard drive.
This ment any streams where yours to keep.
This ment Real sued the shit out f them over the last year and a half
tothe point that stream is now working with Real to make Real freindly
but for those who got a good beta copy of stream box VCR its still Duck
Season for streams:)- Until they chnage the streams that is whcih i dont
think they will do soon enough or tech enough to thwart it.
Of yea, it also grabbs Mircosofts based streams as well, but MS didnt sue
the shit out of them. Thus Real is the shittests of shitbaggers.
there are other stream grabbers, this is just the sotry of one.
