RealNetworks Incorporates Mozilla Rendering Engine In Private-label Media Player

Wednesday April 26th, 2000

According to this article in Netcenter's Tech News section, RealNetworks is adding a downloadable HTML rendering component -- based on Mozilla -- into a private-label version of the Real Player. The player, co-developed by RealNetworks and a company called Global Media, allows for Global Media's Associates to have a branded media-player solution for their broadcasting services.

RealNetworks interest in Mozilla first came to our attention at the Developer Meeting at Mountain View - but I thought they were only evaluating Mozilla at that point. It seems like they've made some progress!

Thanks to Tekhir and others for the news.

The past couple of builds have been a little painful to use because of regressions. I'm not sure if Real's code addresses any of the recent regressions but major regressions are usually fixed in a week or two.
