REAL TO BUILD OPEN SOURCE MEDIA PLAYER
Posted August 06, 2003 5:30 AM Pacific Time
RealNetworks is launching a project to build an open source media player,
offering to give Linux, Unix, and Solaris users the same media playback
and support capabilities available from the company's RealOne Player for
Windows and Mac systems.
The project, announced Wednesday in conjunction with the LinuxWorld
conference in San Francisco, will be taken on by the Helix community of
developers. Real introduced Helix last year as both a community and
platform for the standardization of digital media. Since then, it has
released source code for the server, client, and producer portions of its
media delivery system.
