How can I read RealVideo format?

I have some videos in the RealVideo format, do you think I would be able to read them one day on my Live Hub or I can delete them already?


I don’t believe that you will ever be able to play these files on the hub.

RealPlayer is a dead format. Wouldn’t waste the storage space on those files.

The Hub can only play what the processor inside can decode, and RealVideo is not supported in hardware. WD can’t add support, even if they wanted to.

RealVideo is software decoded (that’s how it can run on any PC) so they could add via firmware it if it were still a viable format worth WD paying the licensing fees for.

RealVideo is software decoded on your PC.

Media Player appliances use hardware decoders.  Totally different beast.
