RealServer
« on: February 28, 2017, 10:23:59 AM »
Does anyone remember Real Player (I'm sure you would love to forget it though).
How about RealServer.  The streaming media server that could serve up real files.
Has anyone seen a copy of that floating around?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it, or break it so you can fix it!

So I'm not crazy in remembering that it existed.

Thanks for checking.

I thought I saw the download for it back in the day. I had only used it on a Windows 98 machine back then.

I'm starting to think I am crazy.
I've been digging.  All I could find are documents and references to a Windows and Linux version.
And now I start to remember that I had used it on a Windows 98 machine because it wasn't available for Mac and it made me mad at the time.
Although it's not a mac app (unless someone can hopefully prove me wrong), I'm still looking for the windows variant or a mac version if it exists.

I dont think they released a server edition for mac until osx. I thought they made it a part of the server os
remember seeing a g2 realplayer edition and other stuff.


no server version for mac. Just checked. I guess they had no interest in a mac version.
